Do Blu-ray Players Support Playing WMV Files

Hi I would like to know if WMV files are a standard in blu-ray players?

Wanna know if it is possible to play WMV on Blu-ray player natively or need do some preparation work. Read this article, you may find the answer.

To watch WMV movies on Blu-ray player, first, update the firmware of the player to the latest version please. Then have a try. If it still doesn’t work, it may due to the format codec. So, the point here is if WMV files are a standard in Blu-ray players.

We searched what video codecs will Blu-ray support. SMPTE VC-1 – standard based on Microsoft’s Windows Media Video (WMV) technology is listed although, it means Blu-ray discs can be encoded with VC-1 and VC-1 is based on WMV. That is NOT the same thing as saying that any old WMV file will play in a Blu-ray player. Obviously, we may fail to watch WMV movies on Blu-ray disc player via USB device.
