Question: I found a .idx file in the directory of a domain, when I accessed it via [FTP-> ftp-programs-mac]. My Mac wanted to open the file with VLC, but that failed. With which program should you open these IDX files?
Answer: An .idx file is only an “overview”, which has a program created. Most of the time you can translate IDX with “Index” so that this file is an index of a database or another collection of data.

There are several software programs that create files with the idx file transfer , but since you spoke of a domain, I assume that it is an index, which is supported by the software [web2date of Data Becker-> web2date- alternative]. I have such a file times with a customer on the website discovered and which was originally developed with web2date. I could open the file with a simple text editor – in my case [BBEDIT-> bbedit]. It was deleted, however, because it was indexed by Google and thus provided for a [Duplicate-Content-Problem-> duplicate-content].
But as I said: The file may also come from a completely different software, which I do not know.
