Notes about the SGV 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 SGV file type is primarily associated with 'Security Camera'. This video format is one of three used by several different security camera makers. The files will typically have a root name that indicates when the video/picture was taken. SGV indicates a moving image, SGVX indicates a locked moving image, and SGP indicates a snapshot. Often these files are written to a DVR disc or out to a USB storage device. They are viewed using software provided by the maker of the device. If you know of a general viewer for these files please use the Contact Us link to provide that information to FILExt.
