What is a DVR-MS (Microsoft Digital Video Recording) file?

Microsoft Digital Video Recording (DVR-MS) is the multimedia container file format that results when a Stream Buffer Engine (SBE) records television (TV) content. DVR-MS is proprietary to Microsoft, which designed it to store TV recordings captured by Microsoft products. In 2008 (with Windows 7), the Windows Recorded TV Show (WTV) format replaced DVR-MS.

 

How to open a DVR-MS file?

Microsoft Windows 7, 8, and 10 still support DVR-MS files. Therefore, a DVR-MS file opens with Windows Media Player. If an application requires DVR-MS, then Microsoft recommends using the following utility to convert WTV to DVR-MS: \Windows\ehome\WTVConverter.exe.

 

Other players that can open a DVR-MS file include VLC media player, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Cyberlink PowerDVD, and Cyberlink PowerProducer.
