Notes about the VU 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 VU file type is primarily associated with 'Playstation' by Sony Corporation of America. VUs are the vector units on the Playstation 2 Emotion Engine chip and are capable of rapidly processing 4-dimensional float vector data as well as integer data. There are two of them, VU0 and VU1. Each one is somewhat specialized in its abilities and its connections to the rest of the hardware in the PS2. A .VU file is the source in raw VU format (no DMA tags, no VCL syntax).
