What is a FILM file?

A FILM file is an encrypted video file created by Filmkey Player, a utility used to view films with Digital Rights Management (DRM). It contains a movie, which may be an .MP4, .M4V, .MOV, .QT, .MQV, or .MOOV file, encrypted with Filmkey encoder.

More Information

FILM files are encrypted by the Filmkey encoder. The key is sent to the "filmkey.ch" server and the FILM file is uploaded to the producer server. The client downloads the FILM file from the server. To open the FILM file, Filmkey retrieves the key from the "filmkey.ch" server.
