Opening MPEG2 files
Did your computer fail to open a MPEG2 file? We explain what MPEG2 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your MPEG2 files.
What is a MPEG2 file?
Every day thousands of users submit information to us about which programs they use to open specific types of files.
While we do not yet have a description of the MPEG2 file format and what it is normally used for, we do know which programs are known to open these files. See the list of programs recommended by our users below.
We are constantly working on adding more file type descriptions to the site - the current count exceeds thousand by far, and more information about MPEG2 files will hopefully be added soon.
