What is an .ETRG file?

.ETRG is Warez movie

The etrg is not actually a file extension, but a "label" of certain warez groups that offer rips of movies over the P2P networks.

ETRG is usually just part of the file name and the the files are in actually in one of the common multimedia formats, i.e. AVIs, MP4s, MKVs or similar.

This mainly confuses users that have file extensions of known formats hidden by default.


How to open:

Files with ETRG in file name are usually movies playable in any video player, because they are usually in one of the common file formats.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .etrg file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
