What is an FM2 file?

An FM2 file contains information in the FCEUX Movie Capture Format (FM2). It stores records of buttons pushed during gameplay in plain text and binary format, along with metadata, such as the movie file format and the version of the emulator that created the FM2 file. FM2 files replaced the FCM movie format.
