A video with a .mpv extension usually contains MPEG elementary stream composed of uncompressed and raw video data that adopt MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 compression standard. MPV files are primarily used for exporting raw data from digital video recorders or storing raw video data on certain digital video recording or creation programs. Meanwhile, MPV files don’t contain audio data.
Although the MPV file is an obsolete video file type, it is still supported by many common media players and applications. In addition, some MPV files can be renamed to .mpg or .mp4.
Typically, your computer will associate the MPV file with an application supporting it. You only need to double-click the file to open or play it. If this were not the case, right click on the MPV file, go to Open with > Choose default program, and select the program you want to play the MPV file with. Both VLC media player and Windows Media Player support the playback.
