About the MOD format

The MOD file is a format that is used by many digital or solid state camcorders (JVC, Panasonic and Canon) and standard definition hard drive. The actual audio and video streams will be stored under the .MOD filename, even though the camcorders can create a number of files; thus the name of this file format.

Contrary to what many believe, this MOD file format is really not special at all. It's an MPEG-2 Program Stream file that conforms to MPEG-2 specifications and can be viewed with some video software. It is also compliant with DVD specifications.

How to play MOD files

As we know, VLC media player enables you to play MOD files both on Mac and in Windows. It is a good option for you. Besides, you can play MOD files in Windows with XMPlayer and KMPlayer, and play them with PlayerPro and CocoModx on Mac OS. So if you don't want to change the format of your MOD files, you can download these programs to your computer and import the MOD files to the program for playback.

The necessity of MOD conversion

If you are using a program that supports the MPEG-2 Stream files, it should also be supported by MOD files. However, some of the video editing programs might refuse to import or open MOD files because they cannot recognize the files. Likewise, most of the DVD burning applications might not know how to work with .MOD files and Windows Media Player or other top rated video applications might not be able to read them. Well, you don't have to worry as a good MOD converter program can help to resolve all your problems.
