I'm trying to put some CCTV footage from the system onto disc to be viewed by SLT, but the issue is when I run the backup to get a file from the DVR to be viewed, the file is a .VID file.
After some research I discovered this was a general file extension for a video of any format and should open with most video players, but it doesn't. I've tried VLC, WMP, Realplayer and Quicktime to no avail. I've also tried converting it with WinFF with no luck. The file may need to be viewed offsite so just streaming it from the DVR isn't an option, plus the footage will only be on there for a limited time. The CCTV software also doesn't have a playback option for saved footage, or an option to save as another format (that I can see).
The software is Plush264 that we use for the CCTV here, there's another called QCMS installed but it doesn't seem to have as many features.
If anyone has suggestions on how the .VID file can be viewed or converted to a viewable file I will be very grateful.
Thanks in advance!
