“I recorded some interesting DVR videos with a digital video recorder (DVR) and I wanted to share it with my family and friends. But there is a problem; they can't play these DVR videos. So I tried to put these DVR files Converted to an AVI file, but I don't know the specific method. Can someone help?”
Hey, friend, congratulations, you have come to the right place. I have a simple and quick way to safely rip a DVR video file into an AVI file. But before that, you'd better understand what kind of video file the DVR is.
The DVR is a Digital Video Recorder, a digital video recorder or digital hard disk recorder, which is a proprietary video and audio file container format developed by Microsoft. DVR uses digital recording technology, which has great advantages in image processing, image storage, retrieval, backup, and network transmission. AVI is the abbreviation of Audio Video Interleave. It is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft. It allows audio and video to be played back synchronously. It supports multiple audio and video streams and is widely used to include TV, movies and various videos.
Since copyright protected DVR files can only be played by recording devices, and some common programs (such as Windows Movie Maker) do not support unprotected DVR files. So to share DVR videos with others, converting DVRs to AVI is the smartest choice.
