QCIF file extension - QCIF RAW video format

What is qcif file? How to open qcif files?

File type specification:

Digital video and movie file type icon Digital video and movie file type

The QCIF file extension is used for somewhat old QCIF RAW video format. A QCIF file has roughly 1/4 of the resolution of the CIF file. Seems like a variant of MPEG-4 format, optimized for very small resolutions and frames.

Help how to open QCIF files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension QCIF:

As far as we know, this .qcif file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
