The .MOD format is simply a MPEG2 formatted video, and if you simply wish to view the files on your computer, it is reportedly safe to rename the extension from .mod to .mpg or .avi
The known camcorder models that use the .MOD format are:
JVC: GZ-MG30, GZ-MG70, GZ-MG37, GZ-MG77, GZ-MG505, GZ-MG130, GZ-MG155, GZ-MG255, GZ-MG555
Panasonic: SDR-S100, SDR-S150, SDR-S10, SDR-H18, SDR-H200, SDR-H40, SDR-H60, SDR-SW20
Canon: FS100, FS10, FS11
If you have trouble in rendering MOD files on your currently used video player, like Windows Media Player, there are other available video players able to play MOD files, like VLC Media Player, MPlayer, etc. Check out here for more choices available. If you insist to use the existing media player that fails playing MOD files, then converting MOD to another compatible format for your media player is helpful.
