What is DLC file?

DLC file extension is used by encrypted container files, which are used for storing downloaded data or data to be downloaded. DLC format is used by Jdownloader, a platform-independent application written in Java. DLC files contain encrypted list of download links to be downloaded by the application.

Sharing links easily

Single DLC can store many links to files tat can be downloaded form file-sharing websites such as Rapidshare or Megaupload. Sharing links using DLC containers is easy and very convenient.

DLC file encryption

Files stored in DLC containers are divided into parts. Stored files as well as the DLC container are encrypted. DLC format uses end-to-end encryption for client-server sessions, which is processed locally, and the keys are shared over the internet. In order ot access a DLC container, the application must authorize itself with Web keys. Encryption prevents unathorized access to DLC data.

What else may cause problems?

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

First - the DLC 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 DLC 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 DLC 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 DLC file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
