Opening MTV files

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

What is a MTV file?

Files that contain the .mtv file extension are most commonly used to play videos on portable MP4 players that have been made in China. The file format allows manufacturers to create the players without increasing the cost due to license royalties.

The MTV files that are used by these players display a series of raw rgb 465/555 images in conjunction with MP3 audio files. The image quality is sacrificed, however, due to the low frame rate and image resolution of this particular file format.

The MTV Music Generator gaming software also uses the .mtv file suffix. These MTV files contain game files that can be played with the MTV Music Generator software program.

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.
