It's not always possible to see from a filename's extension what format is used. Sometimes the same extension is used for different formats or often a file simply has a wrong extension. WhatFormat is a file analyser that checks the first bytes of a file for signatures to try to determine it's format. It also knows many filename extensions and suggests applications for viewing.
What's new in this version:
- Better recognition of MPEG Layer 3 audio (mp3), Binair file belonging to Visual Basic .frm (frx), Internet Shortcut (url)
- Fixed the problem that WF didn't recognize the extension if the file has more than one point in the name
- Added MPlayer2, Acrobat Reader, QuickTime MoviePlayer (a-c), QuickTime PictureViewer (a-c)
- Changed some interface colors
