Opening BMK files

Did your computer fail to open a BMK file? We explain what BMK files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your BMK files.

What is a BMK file?

The .bmk file extension is most commonly associated with PowerDVD MovieMark files. This file format was developed by CyberLink to store bookmarks for PowerDVD files.

The BMK bookmark files that are created with this software contain information about a PowerDVD movie, including the timestamps, video information and comments that have been created by PowerDVD MovieMark users. The BMK files do not contain any actual video data themselves.

The BMK files are commonly used to share movie reviews and comments about the associated movie via the Web.

The Microsoft Help software application has also been known to use the .bmk file suffix for its bookmark files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
