Notes about the SOR 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 SOR file type is primarily associated with 'Adobe Flash Media Server' by Adobe Systems Incorporated.

The Adobe Flash Media Server family of products is a solution for streaming video and real-time communication.

These are object containers, sometimes known as shared objects. Shared objects allow you to synchronize users and store data. Shared objects can do anything from holding the position of pieces on a game board to broadcasting chat text messages. Shared objects let you keep track of what users are doing in real time.

These shared objects are named with the extension .fso and are stored on the server in a subdirectory of the application that created the shared object. Flash Media Server creates these directories automatically.

Remote shared objects on the client have the file extension .sor and are also stored in a subdirectory of the application that created them.
