Microsoft designed Windows Recorded TV Show (WTV) to store TV recordings captured by Microsoft products. WTV is a multimedia container that compresses video with MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, and audio with MPEG-1 Layer II or Dolby Digital AC-3. It supports metadata and digital rights management (DRM). In 2008, WTV replaced another Microsoft-proprietary format, DVR-MS.
It is important to know that Microsoft no longer supports WTV. Regardless, it is best to use Windows Media Player to open a WTV file. If a copyright protects the content, then it only plays on the Windows PC that was used to record it. If a copyright does not protect the content, then it can play on other platforms.
Other players that can open a WTV file include VLC media player, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Cyberlink PowerDVD, and Cyberlink PowerProducer. For additional information, read this article on Microsoft’s web site.

Ogg Vorbis (OGV) is a free, open-source, unpatented multimedia container format and codec. It is part of the Ogg family of formats and codecs, which the non-profit Xiph.Org Foundation developed to compete with patented codecs. OGV can time-division multiplex (TDM) audio, video, text (subtitles), and metadata. It supports streaming, as well as lossy and lossless compression. However, it does not support menus.
VLC media player is the best choice for opening OGV files. Other good choices are Winamp for on Microsoft Windows OS, and Elmedia on Mac OS X.
It is possible for OGV to play in Windows Media Player and DirectShow-based players, but only with the use of a DirectShow filter. On the other hand, if the player is not based on DirectShow, then the filter is not necessary.
