A VMD file is a multimedia file used by various CD-ROM video games developed by Sierra Entertainment, most notably Phantasmagoria. It contains video and audio data in the Sierra Video and Music Data (VMD) format. VMD files are typically used for title and logo animations and in-game cutscenes.

There are few programs that support VMD files since they are rare. The files are primarily only used in games developed by Sierra On-Line in the 1990s.

However, you can open and play VMD videos with the free VLC media player, which is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

You can also convert a VMD file to a more common video format with FFmpeg, then open the converted file with a media player, such as Microsoft Windows Media Player (Windows) or Apple QuickTime Player (macOS).
