MPV File Extension

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

What is the .MPV file type?

The MPV file extension is commonly attributed to MPEG-1 video files. MPV files contain an "elementary stream," or raw video data from video authoring applications or video recorders compressed without significant quality loss.

MPV files don’t contain any audio information and thus work similar to M2V files. Since the MPEG-1 format is still considered as the standard for video/audio data compression and transmission, there are many players capable of decoding MPEG-1 videos.

The MPV file extension is also used by MyPhotoZip lossless compression application designed to reduce a large image size with a ratio of up to 1500:1. Such .mpv files define image archives created within the program for the purposes of easy storage or fast distribution.

In addition, the .mpv file extension can be related to Microsoft Office Project application used to help project managers in creation and realization of their business plans. The MPV file extension was used in the earlier versions of the program for saving project view files.
