.wvx file extension
- Windows video playlist file. A .wvx file contains a list of video media files to
play. Play using Windows Media Player.
This is a text editable file that contains the locations of windows media .wmv files. It does not contain the audio/visual data directly, only the locations or one or more media files and the order in which they are to be played. The media files in the playlist are typically .wmv but may be any type of media file.
The .wvx file is normally formatted as an XML file, for example:
<ASX version = "3.0"> <Title>My Vids</Title> <Entry> <Ref href="http://www.example.com/media1.wmv"/> </Entry> <Entry> <Ref href="http://www.example.com/media2.wmv"/> </Entry> </ASX>
Some .wvx files are instead formatted very much like a standard .ini file, for example:
[Reference] Ref1=http://www.example.com/media1.wmv Ref2=http://www.example.com/media2.wmv
Be aware that a .ini style .wvx does not appear to be the norm, and if you are creating .wvx files the xml style will be more widely supported.
