    What Is IFV Format?

    IFV is a proprietary video format output by some DVR or security cameras monitoring system. It has no relationship with IVF(Indeo Video Format). Don't be confused. IFV uses H.264 to store video with or without PCM audio. IFV format looks a little like ASF format and uses some reserved ASF GUID as block tags.

    IFV is not a general purpose video format for distribution. Nearly all popular players and editors don't support it. Only those software that produce it can play it, and all of them only work on Windows system. How to convert IFV to popular video format to play or edit it in popular players and editors? How to play IFV file on Windows and Mac without conversion?

    Here is the answer: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/ifv-converter-and-ifv-player.html

    Hope it can help you more or less.
