Opening DMSK files

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

What is a DMSK file?

Files that contain the .dmsk file extension are temporary files that have been created by the DivX Web Player. The DivX Web Player is a media player that allows users to view movies and listen to music on their computers.

The DMSK files that are created by this software are temporary download files that are used for an associated .ddat file until the entire video file has been completely downloaded from the Internet. These files contain video data in the AVI file format.

When a media file download has been completed, the .dmsk file will be renamed with the .avi extension.

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.
