Opening ARF files

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

What is an ARF file?

ARF stands for Advanced Recording File. Files with the .arf extension are most commonly used by the WebEx online meeting software. The ARF files contain recordings of the online meetings conducted with the WebEx application and include meeting video data, a table of contents, attendee list and other meeting information. These files can be downloaded from the WebEx website.

The .arf fie extension is also used for Automatic Response files, ARF image format files, Active Tutor data files, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) resource files, Flexible image transport system bitmap files and Packmania 2 game archive 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.
