What is a DAV file?

A DAV file is a video created by a DVR365 digital video recorder (DVR) connected to a CCTV security camera. It stores video saved in an encrypted format compressed with modified MPEG compression.

More Information

DAV files may be recorded by various DVR365 DVRs, such as the DSD304, DSD308, or DSD316. The files are created by the SightBoss Central Station software installed on the DVR.

DAV videos can be played back in Windows using the standalone PC DVR365 player software. Note that to open a .DAV file in the DVR365 player, you need to first click the play button, which opens the file open dialog. DAV videos may also be played back using Amcrest Smart Player, which is available for Windows and macOS.
