What are M2V files and how to open them

What is a M2V file?

A .M2V file is a MPEG-2 Video Stream file.

An M2V file is a MPEG-2 video file that contains no audio or subtitles.

MPEG files consist of several "streams" of data, where two of them are Video and Audio. An M2V file contains the video part, whereas the audio stream can be stored in e.g. an M2A-file or a WAV-file. You will seldomly come across standalone .M2V files unless you work with systems operating with separate MPEG data streams, which could e.g. be DVD-authoring software.
