MOD File Format

MOD files Format

MOD is a recording video format for use in digital tapeless camcorders like Canon, JVC, Panasonic, etc. MOD is used exclusively for standard definition video files and uses MPEG2 compression for video and MPEG-1 Audio Layer II compression for the audio track. The first camcorders that used MOD format appeared in 2003. JVC introduced the Everio GZ-MG30.

MOD video can be viewed on a computer with a player that is capable of reproducing MPEG-2 video. This video can be easily authored for watching on a DVD player without recompression, because it is fully compliant with DVD-video standard. MOD is not popular for the computer media players, so you can read the related guide or software for converting MOD to common video format like MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV, FLV .etc on Windows or Mac.
