Opening FLUXDVD files

Have a problem opening a .FLUXDVD file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what FLUXDVD files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .FLUXDVD file type?

The filename extension .fluxdvd is associated with the proprietary, closed-source format of compressed DVD-Video images developed by FluxDVD (now, FlickRocket) on the basis of the earlier RatDVD (P.Jensen et al.). Just like RatDVD, FluxDVD serves to compress DVD-Video disks to roughly half their original size, while preserving all features of the original DVD. Aimed at commercial multimedia content owners and distributors, FluxDVD gained popularity as a means of selling DRM-protected DVD movies online.

The .fluxdvd file is a FluxDVD image of a commercial DVD-Video disk. The file itself is a large (one to two gigabytes) ZIP archive with a directory structure inside. Instead of the standard MPEG-2 .vob files, the actual content is stored in the .xvo files each of which is a multiplexed FluxDVD container. Unlike RatDVD which uses its own custom video codec (XEB), FluxDVD employs a variant of H.264 for video and AC-3 for audio. FluxDVD images (.fluxdvd) could be opened for playback using FluxDVD's proprietary software (no longer offered for downloading), or converted into regular DVD's using several third-party tools and methods.
