Notes about the DVR file extension:

(Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The DVR file type is primarily associated with 'Media Center' by Microsoft Corporation. In Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition, Microsoft has introduced the *.DVR-MS (DVR) file format. Similar in format to *.ASF, the *.DVR-MS (DVR) file enhancements allow the creation of key PVR functionality, including time-shifting, live pause, and simultaneous record and playback.
