Opening REP files

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

What is a REP file?

Files that contain the .rep file extension are most commonly associated with replay files that are used by a variety of different gaming applications. These REP files contains frames or scenes from a particular game, capturing information about a particular period of game play.

REP files allow gamers to share game replays and create game play instructions for other gamers to use. The REP file does not contain any actual video data, however, as these files only contain the captured frame information that can be replayed in the game itself.

Popular games that use the REP file format include Grand Theft Auto and StarCraft.

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.
