File Extension XFL

.XFL File

File extension: XFL
File type: CS4 Exchange Format

Notes about the XFL 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 XFL file type is primarily associated with 'Flash' by Adobe Systems Incorporated. The Adobe CS4 products use a new exchange format called XFL. The details of the XFL file are not fully known as of this posting however Adobe has promised to release the specifications. The XFL file itself is a ZIP archive. Inside the archive are the source materials for a Flash document. Also inside is an XML file describing the document in a way that Adobe Flash can read the XML file and the other contents and construct the Flash document from that. The intent is to allow other programs to be able to create Flash files and exchange the source data for those files (e.g., modify images in the archive without disturbing the associated timeline).
