What is a DCE file?

A DCE file is a video created by Lytx DriveCam, a dashboard camera and monitoring device for motor vehicles. It contains video footage recorded while a driver was driving a vehicle. DCE files contain footage of both the driver (inside the vehicle) and roadway (outside the vehicle).

More Information

DriveCam is a dashboard camera that, in addition to recording footage while a driver is driving, notifies the driver when they are engaging in distracted driving. Typically, DriveCam begins recording when it notices:

  • A sudden change in vehicle motion
  • A driver performing a risky driving activity (such as using their cell phone)

Users can also manually start a DriveCam recording or set the device to record continuously.

The recordings that DriveCam creates are saved as DCE files. Each DCE file contains two separate videos: one of the vehicle's interior and one of the exterior environment. Users can view both recordings by opening the DCE file with DriveCam Event Player.

How to open a DCE file

You can open a DCE file with Lytx DriveCam Event Player. However, DriveCam Event Player is now discontinued. Current DriveCam users can access their DriveCam videos from within their Lytx account.

How to convert a DCE file

If you still have access to DriveCam Event Player, you can use it to convert DCE files to the .AVI (Audio Video Interleave) format.
