MTA File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a MTA file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .MTA files.

What is a MTA file?

The .mta file extension is widely known to be associated with the Samsung AllShare application. Samsung AllShare is primarily used in sharing movies, songs and other multimedia files between devices and gadgets that may or may not be supported by Samsung. The .mta files contain metadata (information or descriptive instructions on the other data) about the multimedia file. MTA files are in the same directory as the primary multimedia files.

MTA files are instantly generated by Samsung AllShare when a multimedia file is used. They are created in the same directory as source multimedia file using the "file.avi.mta" as file name, while the source file is named "file.avi". It is used to facilitate sharing processes, making it easier for the application to run the transfer that would otherwise become unsuccessful if there is no .mta files. An MTA file serves as a "card pass" that Samsung AllShare application uses before letting a primary multimedia file go on transfer and sharing.
