A WMV (Windows Media Video) file is a popular video file format developed by Microsoft. It is specifically designed for efficient video compression while maintaining reasonable video quality. WMV files are commonly used for streaming videos and online distribution due to their ability to provide small file sizes without significant loss of visual clarity. The format's compression technology allows users to store more videos on their devices or websites while optimizing bandwidth usage for smoother playback.

WMV files are compatible with various media players and devices, making them a versatile choice for sharing videos across different platforms. Microsoft's Windows Media Player is a default application that can easily handle WMV files. Additionally, the format can be used for streaming videos on the internet, which makes it suitable for websites hosting video content or online video platforms. The widespread usage of WMV files in the past has contributed to its widespread support across different operating systems and devices.

While WMV files offer efficient compression and good video quality, they are not as universally supported as some other video formats like MP4. As technology has advanced, other video formats such as H.264 and H.265 have gained more popularity due to their superior compression and compatibility across a wide range of devices. However, despite the decline in its prevalence, WMV remains an important part of digital video history and is still used in certain contexts where compatibility with older systems or specific media players is a priority.

PNG files are a widely used graphics file format used in areas where high-quality images (often with transparency) are required while also retaining a small file size. They are one of the most common formats of file used for web and print mediums and are particularly useful for logos, icons, and other images where multi-level transparency is desired.

The format itself was created in the 1990's with the main aim of storing computer graphics in a high-quality format while minimising the required storage space. The longer-term aim was to displace the GIF file format and make PNG the number one format for non-lossy, high-quality image formats on the then-burgeoning world wide web.

One of the selling points of the PNG format is its support for multiple levels of transparency, making it superior to the GIF format, which can only handle a single level of transparency. Also, like GIFs, the PNG format supports palletizing image colors down to 256 or 16 colors to help reduce the file size of the PNG.
