The MPLS file is supported on 3 operating systems. Depending on your operating system, you may need different software to handle the MPLS files. Below is a summary of the number of programs that support and open the MPLS file on each system platform.
What is MPLS file?
The file with the extension MPLS is the Video Files file type. It was designed by Blu-ray Disc Association. Additionally, the Video Files category contains 546 of other files. Blu-ray Movie Playlist Format is supported by 3 operating systems. These systems consist of Linux, Mac OS, Windows, although it may occasionally be found on another system, it will be non-functional. The VLC media player application is recommended to open the file. It was released by VideoLAN Project Team. Alternatively, you can use 6 other programs. You can use PowerDVD, Corel WinDVD, Nero Multimedia Suite, BDInfo in case VLC media player cannot be used.
How to open MPLS file?
The main problem with Blu-ray Movie Playlist Format is that the MPLS file is incorrectly associated with programs. This causes the file MPLS to open by system applications not designed for this purpose, or to display a message that there is no associated program. This problem can be easily remedied.
The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the MPLS 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 VLC media player
In this case, you should first verify that the VLC media player application is installed on the computer. This can be achieved by typing VLC media player into the operating system search engine. In the absence of an appropriate program, its installation in the vast majority of cases will fix the problem. Below you will find a list of applications that support MPLS files.
Programs to open MPLS file
Remember to download programs supporting MPLS files only from verified and safe sources. We suggest using the websites of software developers.
Step 2. Create association of VLC media player with MPLS files
If, despite the installed application, the MPLS file does not start in the VLC media player application, you must create a file association. 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. The program should be visible in the window, otherwise it should be selected manually using the "Browse" button and the program installation directory should be indicated. However, it is important to check the "Always use the selected program ..." box, this will allow you to permanently associate the MPLS file with the VLC media player application.
Step 3. Update VLC media player to the latest version
If, however, after binding VLC media player with Blu-ray Movie Playlist Format there were still problems, you should update the program to the latest version. Some applications allow you to update from the program level, and for others you need to download the installer from the VideoLAN Project Team page and install.
Step 4. Check for the following problems with the MPLS file
Of course, it may happen that despite the above steps, the file still does not work. The most common file problems are:
Very often, the file may be size 0 or incomplete. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the MPLS file. The file should be downloaded again, making sure that the process has finished correctly.
The operating system may be infected with a computer virus. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. Alternatively, you can use the scanners available online. For the best results, we will scan the entire operating system, not just our MPLS file. As a result of the scan, sometimes it is not possible to recover MPLS files, which are deleted if there is a backup of this file, then after restoring it, it must also be scanned.
Older version of MPLS file may not always be supported by the latest software version. These problems are known and are often very easy to fix using the software developers's website.
There can be many reasons for the failure. Repairing is very dependent on the file type. Some programs offer the option of recovering data from damaged MPLS files. The easiest way to restore the file is from a backup or by contacting Blu-ray Disc Association, but this one can be expensive. Not all damage can be reversed.
The program indicates that the file is encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted MPLS files can be used by the device on which they were encrypted, on any other device it is required to have the appropriate cryptographic key and decrypt the file before its recovery.
Some operating systems do not allow file operations in certain locations, eg in system directories or directly on the system drive. While there is usually no problem reading such a file, it may not be possible to save it. If possible, you can try to move the MPLS file to another location.
This problem usually affects more complex files. You may find that another program you are using is preventing you from working with the file. Running programs (including those in the background) should be verified. Sometimes it is necessary to wait a while before referencing the MPLS file again. However, some background programs may block the MPLS file while scanning. If nothing helps, please reset the device.
