What is a TP file?

The .tp file extension is used for a digital video file format that is supported by the software products of CyberLink Corporation among other development companies. These TP files are generated by some satellite receivers, digital recorders and multimedia TVs as recorded video streams. Also known as MPEG-2 TV recorded files, these .tp files are encoded in MPEG-2.A TP file contains digital video, audio and other multimedia data. These .tp files may also store metadata details that are associated with the recorded TV stream. Only a few multimedia players for Windows PCs and Mac OS X computers can be used to play these TP files, which means these .tp files must be CONVERTED INTO OTHER STANDARD DIGITAL VIDEO FILE FORMATS LIKE AVI and MP4 before they can be played by standard multimedia players.As mentioned earlier, the PowerDVD software from CyberLink Corporation can be used to open and view the content of these .tp files. Video playback tools bundled with the satellite receivers, digital video recorders and multimedia TVs that generated these TP files can also be used to view the content of these .tp files.
