Announcing the new Datavyu v1.4.0 with enhanced features, bug fixes, and a new video player for Windows!

I'd like to use Datavyu to code .wmv files on a mac os x 10.9 (mavericks). However, it doesn't open the .wmv files (other types such as .mov work fine). I'm aware it's possible to convert files, but if there's a way to open .wmv files that would save me a lot of converting time.

Thank you in advance! Kind regards, Carlijn

Hi Carlijin,

Because Datavyu uses QuickTime to play videos, we can only support video files that QuickTime supports. I've provided a link of our supported video formats:

Unfortunately, .wmv is not on there. I believe the best way for you to use Datavyu would be to convert your videos. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I know it does take time to convert data.

From an article on how to play WMV on Mac, I found out three methods to solve your issue:

Method One: Play WMV on Apple's computer with Windows system

Method Two: Convert WMV to Mac OS X System Supported Formats

Method Three: Free WMV Players on Mac OS X System

Hope there is one that fits you.
