Manage Brotli files with PeaZip

PeaZip free archiver utility offers full read / write support (compressor, and extractor / opener) for BR compressed files, through the Open Source components from Google's Brotli project (released under MIT license) to offer the same GUI frontend to create, browse, and extract .BR files under Windows and Linux operating systems.

Brotli compression
Google's Brotli provides faster than Deflate (ZIP / GZip) compression, but slower than current Facebook's Zstandard implementation; see benchmarks page for a comparative of fastest file compressor tools.
Brotli algorithm is a pure fast single file (or stream) compressor, and does not provide file archiving features: if multiple files are sent to Botli compression, PeaZip will automatically switch to solid compression consolidating all input files / directories to a single TAR archive.
The entire input is treated as a whole, which usually also allows reach better compression ratio that treating each input file separately.
BR format does not support encryption (files of this type cannot be password protected) as no encryption primitive is offered by Brotli algorithm..

Compress with Brotli algorithm

Brotli fast data compression accepts a single file as input, otherwise (to add multiple files and directories) use "TAR before" option to consolidate input in a single TAR package before proceeding with compression stage with Brotli algorithm.

  • Create BR files from system's file explorer

    • Use context menu entry PeaZip > Add to archive for archive creation screen, to set compression settings, output destination, and other options.

  • Create BR files from PeaZip

    • Select files and folders, and use Add button (also in context menu) for archive creation screen

    • Drag and drop files / folders from the system to a PeaZip instance

How to convert Brotli BR files

Archive file conversion procedure using Convert button extracts and then re-pack input archive files into any write-supported format (7z, arc, br, pea, tar, zip...)

free brotli files extractor

This utility allows to convert any type supported for reading (ACE, CAB, RAR, TAR, ZIP...) into a new BR file, as well as to convert existing BR file into any other write-supported format.

Open Brotli BR files

To open BR file and view its content (a single compresed file in case of plain .br format, a tar archive opening a file), open it in PeaZip with double click if file extension is associated with the application, or using system context menu "Open as archive" entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file associations

Decompress files compressed with Brotli

Decompress BR files from the system
  • Use context menu entry "Extract..." for extraction screen to set output path and other options

  • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for quick extraction with no further confirmation

Decompress Brotli BR files within PeaZip free archiver
  • Extract button shows archive extraction screen providing access to all extraction options (set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc)

  • Extract all to... button activates a simplified procedure only asking for output path

  • Simply drag & drop the compressed file from the application to the system to decompress it

Extract Brotli compressed tar archive

To work on a TAR file compressed with Brotli you will need to uncompress the tar container before using aforementioned methods - it is a two-step non atomic operation.

How to use Brotli compression in 7z archives

7Z Brotli plugin

Brotli faster-than-zip compression algorithm is available also for 7Z format, with Tino Reichardt's 7Z plugins (supported by PeaZip, providing Brotli, Lizard, LZ4, LZ5, and Zstd algorithms for 7Z API), selecting Brotli compression method in Advanced tab when 7Z format is selected.

Synopsis: Work with Google's Brotli fast compression algorithm. How to use PeaZip as free BR files compressor, opener, extractor utility for Windows and Linux. How to create, open, extract (decompress) Brotli compressed files, convert Brotli files to other archive formats.
