Opening MPC files

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

What is a MPC file?

Files that contain the .mpc file extension are most commonly associated with the Musepack software application. MPC files contain compressed audio files. The MPC file format is based on an improved variation of the MPEG-1 Layer-2 algorithm.

While MPC files are not as popular as MP3 files, they are known to have a better sound quality than what MP3 files provide, even though the file size is smaller.

The Microsoft Project software program also uses the .mpc file suffix. This application uses MPC files for the calendar files that are created with the program.

The VersaPro software program also uses the .mpc file suffix. These MPC files used by this program contain compiled motion block 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.
