Opening MODD files

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

What is a MODD file?

Files that contain the .modd file extension are created by a variety of different Sony Camcorder video recording devices. The information that is contained within the MODD file includes details about the video clip that the particular MODD file pertains to. These files are commonly referred to as Sony video analysis files.

The MODD file stores information regarding the date and time-lines that pertain to a video recording that was made by the Sony video camera, however, there is no actual video data within the MODD file itself.

The .modd file extension may also be used for Midiprg Musicato Compress files.

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.
