The same with other Apple devices, the new iPhone 5 comes with no native support for WMV files. As for WMV (Windows Media Video), it is a video compression format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. If you have a WMV video attached in your email and couldn’t play it, you can buy a WMV Player from App Store. If you have lots of WMV videos and wanna manage and sync them via iTunes, you need to use a WMV to iPhone 5 Converter tool to help you convert WMV to iPhone 5 viewable file formats, such as MOV, MP4, and M4V. The guide below details the simple steps to encode WMV to iPhone 5 1080p/720p video for watching on its 4-inch 16:9 display.
