.mpv files - What they mean and getting them to play

    I recently downloaded some videos that ended in .mpv. I've never heard of it, and nobody I know does either. I can't find anything about it, and I don't know how to get them to play. If someone could help me with that, I'd appreciate it very much.

    Also, I'd like to know if there's any way to put a video (specifically these ones that end in .mpv) on a CD/DVD (specifically CD's, but I can buy DVDs I guess...) and make them play on a TV. I doubt it, but, whatever.

    When I try to play these, I get a pop up that says "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

    I later noticed that MediaPlayer plays .mpv2 files, what's the deal with that?

    This is a weird format. I've never heard of it before and there isn't much about it.
    But I would try VLC media player. It plays lots of formats, pretty much anything you throw at it. Also maybe Media Player Classic does but I've never used it so I'm not sure about that.

    Yeah, yeah, VLC. I tried that, it works (it's slow as no other on my computer...)

    Thanks...right now I don't have any more questions...I don't think these CDs I'm using hold videos...GOD I SUCK AT THIS SORT OF THING XD

    Anyway, yeah. I should be done...Thanks again.
