What is AX file?

A .AX, or DirectShow Filter, file is used by programs related to the playback of videos on the Windows platform. It is associated with the idea of processing various video streams. The file format came about as a replacement for the “Video for Windows” format on the operating system. Its most significant features are the ability to encode and decode a video stream, compress and decompress video files, render videos, de-multiplex audio, and parse video files and may be used in the video recording, editing, and production process. At times, it is referred to as Quartz or is more generally known as the DirectShow Filter.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the AX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the AX file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the AX file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the AX file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the AX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
