Opening MET files

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

What is a MET file?

Files that contain the .met file extension are most commonly associated with the eMule and eDonkey2000 P2P file sharing applications. These applications allow users to share files over the Internet, including movie and music files and software applications.

When the eMule and eDonkey2000 applications store cached information, the cached files are saved using the .met file extension.

Both the eMule and eDonkey programs discontinued support after being threatened with legal action by the RIAA.

The .met file extension is also used by the Corel WordPerfect Macro Editor. The Macro files created in this program are saved with the .met file suffix.

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.
