Opening 264 files

Did your computer fail to open a 264 file? We explain what 264 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 264 files.

What is a 264 file?

Files with the .264 extension are most commonly associated with video ripping software. StaxRip and RipBot264 use this file extension for temporary video files. The 264 files are created when this software is used to extract video data that can be encoded into other video formats. These files store the raw video data before the actual conversion occurs. They are normally deleted automatically after the video conversion is completed.

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.
