The nut file extension is associated with the NUT a patent-free, multimedia container format originally conceived by a few MPlayer and FFmpeg developers that were dissatisfied with the limitations of all currently available multimedia container formats such as AVI, Ogg or Matroska.

It aims to be simple, flexible, extensible, compact and error resistant (error resilient), thus addressing most if not all of the shortcomings present in alternative formats, like excessive CPU and size overhead, file size limits, inability to allow fine grained seeking or restrictions on the type of data they can contain.

This nut file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
