  • You can play WebM files on your iPhone using the free PlayerXtreme app. 
  • WebM files are commonly supported for web videos in places like YouTube, but your iPhone’s media player won’t be able to play WebM files directly — you’ll need a third-party app for that.

Our devices are constantly trying to funnel us to their proprietary media playing services. But in a world of myriad formats, your media player may not fill all your needs. 

For playing the WebM format, an open media file type that was designed for web use, the PlayerXtreme app for an iPhone is ideal, boasting a user-friendly interface and a free version to download. 

Here’s how to get started using the app so you can start playing your WebM files on an iPhone.
