Opening DPS files

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

What is a DPS file?

Files that contain the .dps file extension normally contain skin archive files that have been created for the DivX media player. The DivX media player is a software program that allows users to watch DivX formatted video files on their computers.

The DPS skins allow users to customize the look and feel of the DivX software, installing custom graphics, fonts and buttons that change the way the DivX player interface looks. The DPS file may also contain configurations for the player's playback area and different views. The DPS skins are archived in a ZIP file format and are given the .dps file 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.
