Aiseesoft WMV Converter for Mac can be used to convert most video files to WMV and most audio files to WMA. WMV and WMA, Microsoft's proprietary formats, are the ones that I had the most trouble playing on Macs. I finally managed to get a video player that can open WMV files just fine, but I had to use converters for a while. This one does the job just fine, and I made sure to test it thoroughly.
As far as format support goes, this converter can only encode files in five formats: WMV, WebM, and AVI for video and MP3 and WMA for audio. There are a few conversion profiles available for devices like the Xbox 360, Zune, some PDAs and Google phones. The application comes with a video editor that lets you trim and crop your videos and adjust some of their properties like brightness, contrast and saturation. It can also add watermarks to your videos.
In my testing of this app, I carried out two conversion operations. First, I converted a WMA file into MP3 and then an H.264 file to WMV. The process was smooth and easy for both tasks. All I did was load the files and select the output formats from the drop-down menu at the bottom of the screen. I didn't change any conversion settings. The resulting MP3 and WMV files played well in MPlayerX. The WMV file played well on my Xbox 360 as well.
