Formats supported by Windows Media Player Mobile
By default, your device supports Windows Media or MP3 file formats. Your device manufacturer or mobile operator might configure the player to support additional file formats.
Supported file formats include:
- MP3 (constant and variable bit rate)
To minimize in-device storage requirements, digital media files are frequently compressed during recording using software called a codec. When you play them, the files must be decompressed using the same codec that compressed them. You can determine which codec a file uses by checking its file properties.
