What is REC file?

REC file extension is native to Topfield PVR digital video recorder, and is created by this type of device by default. The format was designed specfically to store video data captured with the above-mentioned type of recording device.

REC format characteristics

Although REC is a proprietary format, the file can be viewed using players or software other than that offered by Topfield. Video data stored in REC format is compressed to save storage space of recording device and thus provide space for more video files. REC files are sometimes refer r ed to as Toppy files, since Toppy is short for Topfield.

What else may cause problems?

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

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