What are MNFT files and how to open them

What is a MNFT file?
The .mnft file extension is a file format which can be found in files that work as descriptive files made for other file types. The .mnft or manifest file extension is used in a lot of programs and platforms to identify files that serve as a support for other files in the system. They are also tied to various .dll (dynamic-link library) or .exe (executable) files.
A manifest file basically contains metadata and other specific data that define certain file, package or extension, such as the source, destination, permissions and more. Furthermore, can be opened with a text editor since these files are usually text files.
To illustrate how .mnft files manifest on videos, for example, a video may contain human readable JSON encoded metadata. The manifest file often contains either a link to the actual video file, or a template that can be used to construct a series of URLs pointing to different parts of the original video file. It gives the necessary information for users to fully utilize the file tied to it by acting as a manual or a guide for usage.
