File type specification:

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

mod file icon: mod filetype icon

Video files with mod file extension are standard DVD MPEG-2 VOB files with audio in Dolby Digital audio format. MOD video file format is used by the tape less JVC camera recorders (JVC EVERIO), Panasonic camera recorders (Panasonic D-Snap) and Canon camera recorders (Canon FS). The original founder of this format is JVC.

The mod files are stored only on camera's hard drive or memory card. If files are transported by the camera software to the computer, the file extension mod will by changed to file extension MPG or MPEG. Audio and video data will be modified for perfect playback in a computer.

If you exported files from the camera recorder directly to computer, not through camera software, you can change file extension MOD to file extension MPG or MPEG and play a video file in media player, that supports playback of video files with MPEG2 compression (DVD-MPEG2) and playback of Dolby Digital audio format (mod files contains MPEG2 video data and MPEG-1 Audio Layer II audio data).

This method has sometimes problems with malfunction playback, like missed video or audio. The recommended media player, that has no problem with MOD playback, is VLC Media Player, but VLC Media Player has mod file associated as Tracker Module (sound file) and it is necessary to change mod file extension to MPG or MPEG file extension.

If you have to play the mod video file in VLC Media Player without renamed file extension, VLC Player will report, that the file is corrupted or it is not the Tracker Module audio format. Other recommended media player is Microsoft Windows Media Player version 12 and higher, but also file extension mod must be changed to mpg or mpeg.
