What is an RL2 file?
An RL2 file is a video file used by Voyeur, an interactive movie video game released in 1993. It contains video data compressed with a simple Run Length Encoding (RLE) method, along with uncompressed audio data. RL2 files are primarily used to store cutscenes that are played during gameplay after a user selects an action.
Since RL2 files are only used by the Voyeur video game, you will most likely never encounter them unless you have installed the game on your computer. Voyeur was originally released in 1993 in the Compact Disc-Interactive (CD-i) format, which is an optical disc data storage format supported by CD-i players, such as Philips CD-i. The game was then released a year later in 1994 for MS-DOS and Macintosh computers.
How do I open an RL2 file?
Since the RL2 format is rare, there are few programs that support it. However, you can convert an RL2 file to a more common video format with FFmpeg, then open the converted file with a media player, such as Microsoft Windows Media Player or VLC media player.
