What is an .G64 file?

.G64 is Genetec Video File

A G64 file is a video file saved in the Genetec video format, which is used to share or archive video recorded through Genetec's Security Center software. It can be played by the Genetec Video Player (formerly Portable Archive Player), which is included with Genetec Security Center.

You can add watermarks to video contained in G64 files and can also choose custom sections of the video to export. You can also choose to export the video to the more popular .AVI and .ASF video file formats.

NOTE: The Genetec Video Player is an application that can be installed on other machines that don't have Security Center software in order to play the G64 video file.
