What is the .WMA file type?

The .wma extension is linked to the Windows Media Audio (WMA) audio file format, audio codec and file type. WMA is a proprietary audio compression format and file type developed by Microsoft in competition to RealAudio and MP3.

WMA files contain one track per file compressed with one of the four sub-versions of the WMA codec (WMA, WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, or WMA Voice). The most commonly used WMA codec uses lossy compression like MP3.
