Opening OB! files

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

What is an OB! file?

The .ob! file extension is used by the Orbit Downloader Internet download software application. This download software allow users to download media files from a variety of different social media websites, such as Myspace, YouTube and Rapidshare.

When the Orbit Downloader has begun to download a file but isn't able to complete the process of the file download, the downloader will save the partially-downloaded file with the .ob! file extension.

Once the download has resumed and has been completed by the software, the proper file extension will replace the .ob! file extension that was given to the file when the download was not yet fully complete.

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.
