What is an .LRV file?

.LRV is GoPro low resolution video

The lrv file extension is associated with the GoPro HD digital cameras used for extreme-action video photography like GoPro Hero2 and Hero3.

The lrv file stores captured video by GoPro.

The lrv file uses MPEG-4 video file format, resolution 240p at 29.97 frames per second.

The low resolution video is created paralleled with high resolution video to reduce compute requirements for editing the video. After the LRV video is edited the final HD video will be generated.
