What is a .BNP file?

The .BNP file is a type of data file used by certain Sony digital camcorders. When you record videos with these camcorders, the .BNP file is created and saved in a special folder on the camcorder called AVF_INFO. This file is important because it holds information about the videos you've recorded, like when they were recorded and how many videos there are. This information helps the camcorder show you details about your recordings.

To open a .BNP file, you would have used a program called Sony Picture Motion Browser in the past. However, it's important to know that this program is no longer available or supported.

It's also worth noting that if you accidentally delete the .BNP files or any other files in the AVF_INFO folder on your camcorder, you might run into problems. Specifically, your camcorder might not be able to play back your recorded videos properly. Despite this, you can still transfer your video files to a computer to watch them there, even if the .BNP files are missing. Just remember that these .BNP files are there to help your camcorder manage and display your video recordings correctly.
