Cheers Dave,

I have already tried this software, it does not recognise a DVR file unfortunately.

The only way I have ever done that is to copy it in real time onto DVD or computer. Time consuming I know.

Hi there all.
If you do a websearch for '' video codecs '' or '' free video codecs, you will find a large array of codecs to download. Download them to a file or if the cctv video footage allows playback on the PC in question, download the file into the windows 32 system folder.

Once downloaded, play back your DVR video and if the software gives you the option to SAVE AS, click on it to save. Where it normally will give you the option to save as AVI only, you should now have the options to SAVE AS, any of the codecs you have downloaded.

Hope this helps

What is the DVR it has come off?

There is not a lot of point in randomly downloading codecs that may or may not help your cause. What I suggest you do, is to download a (free) program called G-Spot (yes, really!!) that will tell you what the codec is.

Sometimes though, it will be in a propitiatory format, hence why I ask where the DVR came from.

Hope this helps!

VLC Media player will play damn near anything.

Quicktime Pro will convert more or less anything, to anything.

What is the format of your DVR video file?
I know VLC could open almost all the video file, why you want to convert it?

I would hope that the OP has got round his formating problem by now. How things change so quickly nowadays..

I find a quite nice DVR Converter in Google. It does me a favor. It seems that there are many solutions in Google.
