Beyond TV Digital Video Recorder Video File

The .tp file extension is used for a digital video file format. 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 the MPEG-2 video standard.

A TP file contains digital video, audio, and other multimedia data. These .tp files may also store metadata details 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 that they must be converted to other standard formats like AVI or MP4 before all multimedia players can play them.

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.
