Opening MXC2 files

Did your computer fail to open a MXC2 file? We explain what MXC2 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your MXC2 files.

What is a MXC2 file?

Files that contain the .mxc2 file extension are most commonly used by the MAGIX software applications. MAGIX distributes a wide range of media software applications that allow a user to edit and play media files on their computer.

MXC2 files are cache files that are created by the MAGIX software program. These files are used to reduce the time that it takes for the software to generate previews of media files within a user's folders and subfolders.

The MXC2 files do not contain any actual media data, just metadata that is related to the actual media files. The MXC2 files are created when a user browses through a folder using the Media pool utility.

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.
