How do you open an hfp file?


I have encountered an hfp file for the first time in connection with doing some video effects work.

Can linux open it automatically, is there already installed something

or should I download an app or converter

I would appreciate a safe link and any advice on this

Read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. Asking people to look things up for you, and hand you a link is fairly rude and lazy. Google has MUCH information about that file extension...did you even TRY to look it up?

It's for the XnView program...you can look up the software on your own.

Could be one of those proprietary security camera/DVR storage formats. Usually only the raw video stream and you need the manufacturers transcoder software to wrap it and make it into AVI or something. It likely runs only on other OS, or maybe in VM/Wine or something. The DVR has a CD it came with if this is the case, or hit the manufacturers site for a fresh version.

Or, of course, twiddle with ffmpeg and see if you can convert it yourself. It would make a good learning experience.

There seems to be a wide range of responses on both search engines and here.

The most likely response I found BEFORE POSTING HERE, was this:
http://www.filedesc.com/en/file/hfp

This says it stands for HARRYS FILTER PRESENTS.

(When I accessed a website I found through a search engine last time, someone on this site chastised me for accessing an unreliable without first checking here. So this time I checked here before trusting HARRY. But this time, another drama queen here chastised me assuming I had done any advance research. Since this is not the first time this type of behavior has manifested, this site would appear to have some behavior problems. Is this endemic to the linux community?)

What I later found was that, while I could not open the file in linux, it opened very easily in Windows.

Could be many things and knowing how the file was created or what windows application is used to open the file might help. My guess is a live meeting high fidelity presentation recording. Which is probably not supported by any linux application.
