What is a .TBN file?

The file extension .TBN refers to a Kodi Thumbnail Image. This type of image file is specifically used by Kodi, which is a media player software available for Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems. The purpose of a .TBN file is to store a small, thumbnail-sized picture of a video clip, audio clip, or a playlist. These thumbnail images are very useful because they serve as preview images, making it easier for users to browse through their digital media collection on their computer. When it comes to opening a .TBN file, there are several options available. The primary program designed to open and handle these files is Kodi itself, since .TBN files are specifically created for use within this media player. However, because .TBN files are essentially image files, any standard image viewer that you have installed on your computer should also be able to open them. This means that you can view the contents of a .TBN file without necessarily using Kodi, just by using your regular image viewing software.

Additionally, for those who use mobile devices, Kodi is also available on both iOS and Android platforms. This means that you can manage and view .TBN files on your smartphones or tablets using the Kodi app designed for these operating systems. In summary, .TBN files are thumbnail images used by the Kodi media player to provide visual previews of media content. They can be opened using Kodi on various operating systems including Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android, or with any standard image viewer software.
