DXA File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a DXA file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .DXA files.

What is a DXA file?

The .dxa file extension began its usage in video files that are derived from Feeble Files. This video file format was especially designed to run on Amiga and Macintosh versions. The Feeble Files is an adventure game about the exploits of an alien named "Feeble". The game is a science fiction comedy that was created and released in the UK in 1997 by Adventure Soft. Many videos in the said game are in .dxa file format. Today, the .dxa format is not only used in Feeble Files videos, but also in other video files.

The DXA file is composed of zlib (a software library used for data compression) compressed video frames, with WAV format for audio. In Macintosh version, .dxa file contains the same compressed video frames, but with Microsoft ADPCM format for its audio.

Take note that the .dxa files are compressed video files. They cannot be played on Windows, Mac, media players, portable devices, or any video editing software without decompressing and converting them to popular video file formats. To freely play a DXA file, try converting it to AVI, MP4, WMV, MOV, MPEG, VOB, and MP3 using a professional DXA converter like Aiseesoft Video Converter and DXA Player with converter plug- in.
