Hi guys,

I received an error message while opening a file with GIMP.

The screenshot of the error message is as under. It has declared the file as an unknown file. I do not know the reason behind it.

Have you any idea for the error?

Please help.

Hallo Jhon,

It seems like you are trying to open a file type that is not supported by Gimp. You will therefore need to open the file using an alternative application to Gimp and then save it a format that can be opened using the Gimp application. After that you can go ahead and open it.

Regards,

Nicke

Dear Jhon Anderson,

There are two possibilities that GIMP failed to play this video and gave an error messages.

1- Your files is a corrupted file and you cannot play it.

2- The second possibility is more probable says that GIMP does not support this file, you can check this by right click the video and select open with a new window will open from this window select “look for appropriate program on the web” and  then you can download the exact program.
