What is META file?

A .META file is a meta data file that is created by RealPlayer application. When the video file is downloaded by the application, a meta data file that describes the video file is created. The meta data file provides information about the video file, such as the name of the file, the location of the file, the duration of the file. Further, the file provides a reference to the actual video file location for playing the video file.

Programs that support META file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the META file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

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

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