What is an STRM file?

An STRM file is an audio file used by various Nintendo DS (NDS) games, such as Tony Hawk's American Sk8land and Mario Kart DS. It may store a sound effect or background music that is looped during gameplay. STRM files can be played by Foobar2000 with the vgmstream plugin installed.

More Information

You most likely will only encounter an STRM file if you have dumped game data from an NDS game and extracted audio stream files from the .SDAT Sound Data file in the game dump. This process is typically done by nostalgic gamers who want to play NDS games on their computer using an emulator.

NOTE: The STRM format is similar to .BRSTM files used by the Nintendo Wii, .BFSTM files used by the Nintendo WiiU, and .BCSTM files used by the Nintendo 3DS.
