Question: What is an MP2 File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an MP2 file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an MP2 file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .MP2 extension are known as MPEG Audio Stream files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the MP2 extension, please let us know.

How to open a MP2 file:

The best way to open an MP2 audio file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the MP2 file.

This audio file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the MP2 file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

TV programmes recorded on the TVFetch Smartbox 8000 can be exported to a USB stick for playback and editing on a computer. These files have the .mp2 extension and play in Windows Media Player.

However files recorded and exported from Channel 4 either lose their audio when opened for editing in Sony Vegas Movie Studio or cause a problem and shut down the program.

Does anyone know of a program that will edit these .mp2 files? I have tried Pinnacle and Cyberlink and they just refuse to open the files.
