Notes about the MQV file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (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 MQV file type is primarily associated with 'Sony' by Sony Corporation of America. These files are in MPEG-4 format. To play on a PC rename to .MOV extension and use Apple's Quicktime (latest version plays .MQV files directly if you associate the extension with the program).
