Data files with the .f4f extension are generated by the File Packager applet, which is part of the Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming service.The Adobe HPPT Dynamic Streaming service is part of Adobe Media Server. This software is used for the distribution of multimedia content through HTTP connections.Segments of multimedia content are stored in these F4F files. These .f4f files are also known as Flash MP4 fragments.These .f4f files are not meant to be opened by multimedia players and video editing applications.
