Different software has birthed various file formats with unique file types. However, you may only be familiar with the common ones. Hence, the less popular ones can confuse you—one of such is the XVO file.
You may have stumbled on a file with an XVO file extension while using your computer and wondered what it means. Well, a file with XVO file extension is a ratDVD internal video file used by the ratDVD DVD ripping software.
This article will review what an XVO file is, how to convert them to other file formats, and other things you should know.

What Is an XVO File?
An XVO file is an internal video file used by the ratDVD DVD ripping software. You’ll often see the file alongside other formats, such as XML, VSI, and IFO, all in an AV_TS folder. It will now be zipped into a compressed file format that the ratDVD software can process and read.
XVO files are video files that wholly form the .RATDVD file. So, after the ratDVD software has decompressed the RATDVD files, it uses the .XVO files inside to burn a DVD.
How To Open an XVO File
You should do certain things to open an XVO file; it’s not as straightforward as you think. You must first ensure that these files are in the RATDVD file format. Otherwise, you will be unable to open them.
That said, follow the instructions below to open an XVO file successfully.
- Compress the AV_TS folder and the version .XML file using ZIP compression.
Note: The AV_TS folder contains XVO alongside other files. And the .XML file should be outside the AV_TS folder.
- After the compressing is complete, rename it from the .ZIP file to .RATDVD file.
- Now, you can open the .RATDVD file using the RATDVD software decompressor.
Which Programs Support The XVO File Type?
It’s hard to pinpoint the programs that support XVO files because these file types are not so popular. However, the two programs currently supporting the XVO file type are ratDVD and Windows.
Meanwhile, you can convert it to a different file type, e.g., WAV or MP3. The program you use to convert the file will determine whether you can select your desired file format.

How to Convert an XVO File to Other File Formats
The XVO file is a video file; you can’t convert it with most free file converters. The reason is that it only extracts the .RATDVD file in part. However, we’ve not figured out the need to convert XVO files to a different format.
You can create the .RATDVD file from your XVO files. Then, use the ratDVD software to convert your .RATDVD file to DVD format.
Now, you can use a free video converter to convert the following VOB files to a format you know. For example, ISO, MKV, MP4, and so on.
The above instructions will help you to convert an XVO file seamlessly. However, if you cannot open the file, check out the possible reason(s) below.
Try rechecking the file and reopening it using the method described above.
What to Do If You Still Can’t Open The File
If you couldn’t open the file, it could be because it’s unrelated to ratDVD. This could happen as a result of misreading the file extension.
For instance, VX_ files have two similar file extension letters as XVO files; however, they are unrelated. VX_ files are Compressed Virtual Device Driver files used by Windows Operating System. Thus, you cannot open it with ratDVD.
The same applies to VXD, XVCT, XOF, OVX, etc. For XV0 files, they could be trickier because you might mistake the zero at the end for the letter O. Such files have nothing to do with ratDVD.
To help you fix this, try rechecking the file and reopening it. And from the examples given, research the particular file extension to understand which programs support them.
Problems Faced With XVO File Formats
If you cannot open and use your XVO file, it doesn’t mean you don’t have the right software on your PC. Other issues could stop you from opening and using the RATDVD internal file. See the list below for possible problems.
- It could arise from the incomplete installation of an app that works with the XVO file type.
- You opened a corrupt XVO file.
- Malware has infected the file you’re trying to open.
- There may be a wrong link to the XVO file in registry entries.
- Your PC doesn’t have the required hardware resources to withstand the opening of the XVO file.
- You mistakenly deleted the description of the XVO from the Windows registry.
- The drivers of equipment your computer uses to open XVO files are outdated.
If none of these problems apply to you (or have already been fixed), your XVO file should work with your program without any issues.
However, if the issue with your XVO file is yet to be fixed, there’s probably another rare problem with your file. Thus, the only available option is to request professional assistance.
How to Fix XVO File Issues
If you’re having any issues with your XVO files, below are the possible solutions to fix such issues.
- Ensure the software version (for internal files) you’re using is up-to-date. The reason is that the latest XVO file format will only be supported in the updated version of the software. So, always go to the manufacturer’s website to check if an update has been released for ratDVD.
- Recheck and scan your XVO files to see if they are virus-infected or corrupted.
