How to open MTV file?

The main problem with MTV Video Format is that the MTV file is incorrectly associated with programs. This causes the file MTV to open by system applications not designed for this purpose, or to display a message that there is no associated program. This can be quickly resolved by following the instructions below.

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the MTV 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 MPlayerX

The first step is to check if the computer has the MPlayerX program installed. This can be achieved by typing MPlayerX into the operating system search engine. If we do not have this program, it is worth installing it, as it will help you automatically associate the file MTV with MPlayerX. Below is a list of programs that support the file MTV.

Step 2. Create association of MPlayerX with MTV files

If, despite the installed application, the MTV file does not start in the MPlayerX application, you must create a file association. This option is available from the level of Properties of a specific file available in the context menu. The window will show, among other things, the type of the file and the information by which the program is used to launch the file. Changes can be made using the "Change" button. 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. Checking the "Always use the selected program ..." box will permanently associate the MTV file with the MPlayerX program.

Step 3. Update MPlayerX to the latest version

If, however, after binding MPlayerX with MTV Video Format there were still problems, you should update the program to the latest version.

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

Of course, it may happen that despite the above steps, the file still does not work. File problems can be divided into the following:

Very often, the file may be size 0 or incomplete. This suggests truncating the MTV file contents when downloading or copying. The only repair option is to download the file again.
The computer may have fallen victim to a computer virus or hacker. A quick virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should clear up any doubts. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. The scan should cover the entire computer, not only the MTV file that we want to open. However, remember that not every infected MTV file can be recovered, so it is important to take care of regular backups.
A typical compatibility error - the program does not support the older version of the MTV file. 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. The repair method must be adapted to the type of file and damage. Some programs offer the option of recovering data from damaged MTV files.
When reading, a message appears that the file was encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted MTV 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.
The operating system protects files in some locations (e.g. the root of the system partition) against unauthorized access. While there is usually no problem reading such a file, it may not be possible to save it. Copying the MTV file to another location will fix the problem.
This can happen on a file that does not support multiple access. 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. If the error persists after closing other programs, wait for a while. However, some background programs may block the MTV file while scanning. If this does not work either, restart the device.
