What is PLUGIN file?

The .PLUGIN file type is used to install the plugin packages in MAC OS X. These plugin files are the add on utilities that help other software run better and deliver more productivity to their users. These are also known as plugin library files for MAC OS. Different MAC OS X applications can have their own third party .PLUGIN files which are installed in their respective locations on the hard disk. Some stand alone .PLUGIN files serve as small utility programs themselves and are run using any browser on MAC OS to do small tasks. 

Programs that support PLUGIN file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the PLUGIN 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 PLUGIN file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

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