Warez
Intellectual property (IP) that is distributed illegally. Examples are software, movies or music being given away or resold without the permission of the author, serial numbers or ways to crack software that is sold (serialz or crackz).




WAV
WAV files are probably the simplest of the common formats for storing audio samples. Unlike MPEG audio and other compressed formats, WAVs store samples "in the raw" where no pre-processing is required other that formatting of the data.

The WAV file itself consists of three "chunks" of information: The RIFF chunk which identifies the file as a WAV file, The FORMAT chunk which identifies parameters such as sample rate and the DATA chunk which contains the actual data (samples). MS File Formats




Widescreen
A video image wider than the standard 1.33 (4:3) aspect ratio. When referring to DVD or HDTV, widescreen usually indicates a 1.78 (16:9) aspect ratio.




WinDVD

WMA

WMF
Windows Media Format files are audio/video files encoded with the Windows Media Encoder, providing high quality and media security for streaming and download-and-play applications on PCs, set-top boxes, and portable devices. Windows Media Format comprises Windows Media Audio and Video codecs, an optional integrated digital rights management (DRM) system, and a file container. Microsoft WMF Information




WMP
Windows Media Player - a multimedia audio and video player bundled with the Windows Operating System. The player can play many different formats natively including WAV, ASF, WMF, MPEG-1 and can play many types of AVI files if the codec is installed including Divx. WMP can also play MPEG-2 with a third party codec installed (like the ones installed by software DVD players such as WinDVD and PowerDVD). MS Info




WMV

WMVHD
WMV HD stands for Windows Media Video High-Definition. Just what makes high definition video different? It comes down to video resolution. The video most of us are used to seeing on our TVs today, called "standard definition," has at most 480/576 visible lines of detail, whereas "high definition" video has as many as 1,080. High definition video looks sharper and clearer than regular video, especially on big-screen displays. It actually comes in two different resolutions, called 1080p and 720p. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/content_provider/fi ... video.aspx
