A META extension file is a file created by the RealPlayer player and is used to contain metadata, specifically when the application downloads the video file, then a descriptive metadata file of the video file is created.
RealPlayer Cloud is a free cloud-based media player with an integrated service by RealNetworks that allows users to stream media content directly from websites, or download video files for local viewing.
The metadata META file provides information about the video file, ranging from the name of the file, its location, the length of the file, and more. Additionally, the file provides a reference to the actual location of the video file for subsequent playback.
It should be noted that META files are not shortcuts to the original video file, since they only serve as informational tags for video files, so that the player processes them automatically.
Therefore, META files are not necessary for video playback and thus are expendable and can be deleted.
META files are usually stored in the same directory as the video and may be hidden.
