WAV, sometimes called WAV, is an audio container format developed by IBM and Microsoft and comes with a .wav filename extension. Unlike popular formats like MP3 and MP4, WAV isn’t a lossy format, so it’s bigger and less popular. WAV files can be opened on various OS platforms via software like Windows Media Player, MPlayer, VLC Media Player, and more.
