File Type 3Electronic Arts TQI Video File
.WVE File Association 3
A WVE file is a video file used by various Windows PC video games developed by Electronic Arts. It contains audio data and video data encoded with the Texture Quantized Image (TQI) codec, which includes the frame rate and image dimensions in pixels. WVE files are primarily used to store title and logo animations and in-game cutscenes.
You will most likely only encounter a WVE file if you have installed a game on your computer that utilizes the TQI format. Some games that utilize the TQI format include The Sims, Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup, Superbike 2001, and Beasts and Bumpkins.
The TQI format is based on the TGQ video codec, which is used by Electronic Arts to encode video stored in .TGQ files. These files are used in various Sega Saturn and Windows video games released in the 1990s, such as Need for Speed II and Warcraft II: The Dark Saga.
How do I open a WVE file?
WVE files are uncommon since they are only used in Electronic Arts video games that were released in the 1990s and 2000s and are no longer developed. While there are few programs that support the format, you can open and convert WVE files to a more common video format with FFmpeg. Then, you can open the converted file with a media player, such as Microsoft Windows Media Player (Windows) or VLC media player (multiplatform).
