What is a TGV file?
A TGV file is a multimedia file used by various video games developed by Electronic Arts. It contains compressed and uncompressed video and audio data, which includes the image dimensions in pixels, image palette, and frame rate. TGV files are typically used to store in-game cutscenes and title and logo sequences.
Some games that use TGV files include NBA Live 96, Need for Speed, Privateer 2, and StarLacer. These games were all released in the 1990s and are no longer developed.
You will most likely only encounter a TGV file if you have installed a game that utilizes the TGV format on your computer. You may also encounter a TGV file if you dump the game files from a disc or cartridge that utilizes the TGV format.
How do I open a TGV file?
TGV files are rare since they are no longer used in Electronic Arts video games. While there are few programs that support the format, you can open and convert TGV files to a more common video format with FFmpeg, then open the converted file with a media player, such as Microsoft Windows Media Player (Windows) or VLC media player (multiplatform).
