How to open WVX files

Did your computer fail to open a WVX file? We explain what WVX files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a WVX file?

WVX files are Windows Media Video shortcut files, which you can read more about below.

The WVX file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a WVX opener may not be able to open all kinds of WVX files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
