MTV file extension - MTV video format

File type specification:

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

The mtv file extension is mainly associated with MTV file format supposedly created to allow video playback capabilities on inexpensive Chinese-made portable MP4 players without increasing the cost of those players with the license royalties (and more processor power).

The format operates by displaying a series of raw uncompressed rgb 565/555 image frames while playing MP3 audio but as the files are of low resolution and frame rate, sizes are comparable to MPEG-1 or MPEG-2. (in a bytes-per-minute sense). Encoding and decoding are less processor-intensive than other contemporary formats, as in fact very little "encoding" is actually done.
