How to play .dvr format?

Post by sdim »

Hi,everyone.
Is there a way someone can play a .dvr file (a recording of a TV show made through an MPEG4 decoder/digital TV recording) in Linux?
I tried it on VLC but it seems it's an unsupported format.
Any idea would be welcome.
Many thanks.

Install dvr from synaptic.
Should work now (try every media player).

If not:
Install project-x and reencode your .dvr file.

http://dvr.sourceforge.net/old/html/main.html
That's the URL that lists the features of DVR.
Are you sure it plays the files,or does it only record them? I want to play the files,nothing else.
