What is WV file?

A .WV file represents an audio compressed file that implements the WavPack audio compression format. The wv file using the WavPack hybrid audio compression format, provides both lossy and lossless compression to produce high-quality audio files. Further, the wv file that supports different audio outputs including stereo, mono, and multichannel can be used to compress the audio file size ranging from 30% to 70% of the original audio file size. In addition to compressing the audio files, the wv file can be used to restore the 8, 16, 24, and 32-bit float audio files.

When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the WV extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of WV file conversion to a different format.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the WV file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the WV file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the WV file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the WV file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the WV file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the WV file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
