Notes about the PYV 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 PYV file type is primarily associated with 'Media Player' by Microsoft.

.PYV files are video files that have been protected with Microsoft's content protection; WMDRM (Windows Media Digital Right Management) or the newer PlayReady with AES encryption.

Depending on the licencing agreement for any particular file protected with Microsoft's content protection, .pyv files can be played using either Silverlight or DRM-compatible media players. Licencing agreements also specify where the file can be played, restricted by device/ player or domain and for how long (whether it's streamed, rented, downloaded etc...)
