File extension: ASX

Notes about the ASX file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The ASX file type is primarily associated with 'Advanced Stream Redirector File' by Microsoft Corporation. Points to an .ASF structured file. Apparently you can also put the Microsoft Advanced Streaming Format into an .ASX file and play it with later versions. A number of different players attempt to capture this extension. There are a number of special MIME types that have been associated with ASX. These include: video/x-ms-asf-plugin (an embedding-only MIME type used to force a v7 scriptable interface), application/x-mplayer2 (an embedding-only MIME type used to force a v6 scriptable interface), and application/ (deprecated MIME type used briefly in 1996).
