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.
