Most of the DVRs used for recording CCTV camera footage, saves the recorded files in a lesser known and very rare LVF format. There are very less applications that can play the files with this format and no famous video converter converts these files to any other format.
But after some research I found both, a way to play the LVF files and a converter, that can convert LVF files to AVI format.
How To Play LVF Files
I was unable to find a free player that was able to play LVF files, but instead, got a free codec that will make Windows Media Player and other supported players to play LVF files.
The K-Lite Mega Codec Pack does the job pretty well. Just install the codec pack and you will be able to run LVF files with Windows Media Player.

Convert LVF Files To AVI Format
The LVF to AVI converter can be downloaded from this link. The software does only one thing, converts LVF files to AVI and gives no options to choose the quality of audio or video.
Converting LVF Files To AVI
Run the application after downloading. You can find it by searching Lvf2Avi in the start menu.
- Once open, select the LVF file you want to convert.
- After selecting the source file, select the name and destination you want for the converted AVI file.
- Then click the button at the bottom left to start the conversion.
After successful conversion, click the right bottom button to exit the application.
