WMV (*.wmv) files use Microsoft's ASF container format. These files can be played by Windows Media Player and other players.
Advanced Systems Format (formerly Advanced Streaming Format) is Microsoft's proprietary digital audio/digital video container format, especially meant for streaming media. ASF is part of the Windows Media framework.
ASF container-based media is usually streamed on the internet either through the MMS protocol, the RTSP protocol or the HTTP protocol.
