Director MX 2004 for Windows introduces the ability to leverage the Windows Media framework for playing back various media types. Primarily, this allows developers to use WMV and WMA files in Director projects. WMV is an acronym for Windows Media Video, while WMA is an acronym for Windows Media Audio.
Director relies on the DirectShow component of Microsoft DirectX for using the Windows Media feature. To learn more about DirectX, see Microsoft's DirectX home page.
Note: Director does not export Windows Media, nor is it a video or sound editor.
