.sqz File Extension

Developer: Sorenson Media
File type: Squeeze Project File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .sqz. Files with the file extension .sqz can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .sqz files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .sqz file?

The program known as Squeeze, that allows users to transcode video data is the program that creates project files known as SQZ files. SQZ files contain settings related to video file encoding and historical conversion records all saved in the XML format. SQZ files can also give users the option to convert videos with the use of Squeeze server’s remote cloud resources. Squeeze is an excellent tool that produces the best audio and video quality and this is achieved through SQZ files. These files contain a single archive header as well as a number of file headers wherein the file’s normal header contains 1 byte of bitmapped flags and checksum of header as well as file attributes; 1 dword of the original and compressed file size, time and data, as well as filename characters with unspecified length. SQZ files do not contain the actual video data though, but only the imported video file references.

how to open a .sqz file?

Launch a .sqz file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .sqz file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .sqz files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .sqz file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .sqz file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .sqz files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .sqz. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
