Part 1. What are WMV files?
Windows Media Video (WMV) is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. The original codec, known as WMV, was originally designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. The other codecs, such as WMV Screen and WMV Image, cater for specialized content. Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), WMV has gained adoption for physical-delivery formats such as HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc. It doesn't necessarily define the technology what it uses -- since version 7 (WMV7) Microsoft has used its own flavour of MPEG-4 video encoding technology (not very surprising, it's not compatible with other MPEG-4 technologies..). DivX ;-) video format is originally based on hacked WMV codec.

Part 2. How to play WMV on Mac?
Every new user of Mac ends up with a problem that he would not be able to play WMV videos on Mac. There are three players that allow you to play WMV files on your Mac. 1) Windows Media Player for Mac Windows Media Player 9 is available for Mac PCs but Microsoft no longer maintains or supports it. But the player is available for download at Microsoft’s Web Page. 2) Flip4Mac Microsoft has stopped maintaining WMP 9 for Mac but they have launched Flip4Mac which allows QuickTime Player to play WMV files. 3) VLC Media Player VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player and is a good alternative to the traditional media players as it is available for many platforms. But to use VLC to play WMV files you will have to use the Nightlybuilds version of VLC player. But be careful as these revisions can contain some errors.
