Opening QCP files

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

What is a QCP file?

Files that contain the .qcp file extension are used for QUALCOMM audio files.

The QUALCOMM audio format is a file format that is used to store human voice recordings. These voice recordings are commonly used when sending PureVoice audio attachments via email.

The QCP format is based on the RIFF file format, which is a generic audio format that stores data in groups that are identified by tags. It is a container format that is normally encoded.

This audio container format was designed for vocal frequencies. However, in some cases, a user can use the QCP file format for ring tones to be used on certain CDMA mobile phones.

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.
