Part 4. How to Convert WMV to DVD Free Online

Although many people search for ways to convert WMV to DVD, as a matter of fact, there is no way to do it as an online DVD burner is still not available yet. The most practical alternative is to convert your WMV file into a format that is universally supported. We recommend MP4 as it is supported by all media players on Mac and Windows, including all video playing devices such as DVD players.

An online converter tool that enables you to convert WMV to MP4 is Zamzar, allowing you to perform WMV to MP4 conversion within 3 simple steps.

  1. First, launch the website and then upload your WMV files by drag-and-drop.
  2. Next, set your output format to MP4 and then enter your e-mail address.
  3. Lastly, click Convert to start converting WMV to MP4, and the converted .mp4 file will be sent to you via email.

Note: While this may be a solution for tiny files, you may have to look elsewhere if you want to convert multiple files or videos bigger than 50MB. It is also worth mentioning that this online app does not produce the best quality files, and conversion can be slow, especially when traffic is high.

So, no matter whether you are looking for the quality conversion from WMV to DVD or vice versa, Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate) will do the needful in just a few simple steps. It's a better choice as the online WMV to DVD converters always lack some features.
