The SND file extension is used for video files in FILM/CMK format.

FILM is a multimedia container file format developed by Sega for use on its early CD-ROM home video game consoles like Sega CD, the first CD-based video game console. There are many early variations of the FILM format observed on a number of Sega CD titles. Further, early FILM files have been observed on at least one 3DO game (Lemmings).

Many Sega Saturn CD-ROM games use this file format to store frames of a Cinepak-compressed video interleaved with uncompressed PCM audio. When this is the case, the files will typically have the CPK extension  (which is why FILM files are usually known as  CPK files).

Help how to open:

Many common video formats can be played back with some universal media player like VLC player. However, some highly specialized and proprietary formats may only be supported in certain players that are usually provided by the original developer.

How to convert:

Generally speaking, you will need a multimedia converter if you want to convert one video format to another. You can find hundreds of converters on the internet, but their quality may vary and many may not even support every video format. So always use some of the more popular and reliable software first.
