Some iPhone owners like to download movies and TV-episodes from internet and store them onto their device. With this, they can enjoy these downloaded video stuff on their iPhone when they have a slow, unreliable internet connection on the subway, plane, etc.

But if the films or TV-shows you downloaded are in the WMV format, your iPhone wont read and play them. To solve this problem, you will need a WMV to iPhone converter application to convert the WMVs to iPhone supported H.264 video codec. There are a lot of such converter available on the internet. Here i highly recommend the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter. By the tag "DRM Removal" in this application, you can easily understand that it is not just another video converter out there. Besides the video/audio conversion function, it also features the DRM Removal, that is to say, you can use this application to get the DRM-protected WMV files played on the non-Janus iPhone device (Janus is the codename for portable version of Windows Media DRM for portable devices). Normal video converters can not help you do this.

How to convert any WMVs to iPhone 6 plus/6/5s/4s/3G using Aimersoft DRM Media Converter

Step 1: Free download Aimersoft DRM Media Converter and install it on your computer. You can learn more about this great application here.

Step 2: Load your plain or DRMed WMV files. Run the Aimersoft DRM Media Converter. Open the folder on your computer which stores your WMV files, drag one WMV file, plain or DRM-protected, and drop it onto this software's interface directly. This software will scan and load it in a few second. Batch conversions are available so that you can add more than one video file to convert at a time.

Step 3: Select the output format for Apple iPhone. This converter has offered optimized conversion presets for iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, but not for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6. If you use the latter two model, you can click the "Video files to" drop-down menu to select "MP4" from the "HD video" column as output format, then click the "Settings" button to set the Encoder to H.264, Resolution to 1280*720 pixels, Bit Rate to 2500 kbps and Frame Rate to 24 fps for the two iPhone model.

Step 4: Start WMV to iPhone conversion. Once you have all settings done, just hit the "Start" button to begin converting WMV to iPhone supported video format (by the way, the DRM attached to original WMV file will be removed while converting). After finishing the conversion, find and sync the produced MP4 file to your iPhone. Now you can enjoy your downloaded WMV videos on your iPhone.
