How to open KUX file?

An often recurring problem with Multimedia Data Format is that KUX is not associated with the correct program file. Thus, when you open KUX, the program selection wizard or some other program starts. How to solve such a problem?

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the KUX file icon you want to open. If the operating system has an appropriate application to support it and there is also an association between the file and the program, the file should be opened.

Step 1. Install FFmpeg

The first step is to check if the computer has the FFmpeg program installed. The easiest method is to use the system search engine by entering the program name FFmpeg in it. If it is not, installation may solve the problem, as most applications create file associations during installation. Below you will find a list of applications that support KUX files.

Programs to open KUX file

Remember to download programs supporting KUX files only from verified and safe sources. We suggest using the websites of software developers.

Step 2. Create association of FFmpeg with KUX files

However, it may happen that the application itself does not cause the KUX file to open in the FFmpeg application, but you can set it manually. It is most convenient to call the context menu with the right mouse button and select Properties. Information about the file and the program that the file is associated with are available here. Using the "Change" button we can select the desired program. It may happen that in the next window there will be no appropriate program - however, this can be corrected with the "Browse" option where you should manually indicate the program location. Checking the "Always use the selected program ..." box will permanently associate the KUX file with the FFmpeg program.

Step 3. Update FFmpeg to the latest version

If, however, after binding FFmpeg with Multimedia Data Format there were still problems, you should update the program to the latest version.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the KUX file

The problem may also be with the file itself if the above steps don't work. File problems can be divided into the following:

The affected file may be 0 KB or smaller than expected. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the KUX file. Downloading the file again should fix the problem.
The computer may have fallen victim to a computer virus or hacker. Perform a virus scan using available and up-to-date anti-virus software. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. For the best results, we will scan the entire operating system, not just our KUX file. However, remember that not every infected KUX file can be recovered, so it is important to take care of regular backups.
Older version of KUX file may not always be supported by the latest software version. On their websites, developers usually offer free solutions to such problems, e.g. in the form of a conversion program or an older version of the program.
There can be many reasons for this. Repairing is very dependent on the file type. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular KUX file corruption.
The program can also signal the fact of encryption. The encrypted file KUX except for the special designation, works normally, but only on the device where it was encrypted, before transferring it to another machine, decryption is required.
Some of the system directories are excluded from modification. The problem is only writing to the file, not reading it. It is best to move KUX to a different directory.
This can happen on a file that does not support multiple access. Some file types can only be opened in one program at a time. Closing other programs should help. Sometimes you have to wait for the session to the file KUX to close. Some anti-virus or backup software may occupy the KUX file for a certain period of time. If this does not work either, restart the device.
