File Extension WAX

.WAX File

File extension: WAX
File type: Audio Redirector


Notes about the WAX file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The WAX file type is primarily associated with 'Windows Media' by Microsoft Corporation. This file type is used for WMA Media redirection. Use a text editor to create an .WAX file that contains a single line: the full URL to the .WMA file (e.g., MYAUDIO.WAX contains http://mysite.com/myvideo.wma as its only entry). Use ASCII mode to upload the .WAX file and binary mode to upload the .WMA file. Be certain the server has audio/x-ms-wma as the MIME type for the .WMA file extension and audio/x-ms-wax for the .WAX file extension. You can then link to the .WAX file with the following HTML code: <a href="myaudio.wax" type="audio/x-ms-wax">Play My Audio</a>
