Hi I think you might be looking at all this wrong

unless your system is old or pc based opening file extensions is a thing of the past

which dvr/nvr does the files come from ?

Hi Tomcctv, do you mean this file extension is no longer used? could you explain more? 

I am a new warehouse manager. My boss told me to retrieve some old CCTV footage, because he think someone may have stolen from the warehouse. 

Pls tell why I cannot open them, so I can explain to my boss. Otherwise, he think I am not doing the job. 

But I cannot open those files! 

Pls Help

Hi can you tell use what equipment your using dvr /nvr or pc based recorder and make

 

looking for files points to you removing the hard drive?

most recorders under 10 years old you burn footage off direct from recorder (backup files)

how have you got to this stage in finding files

Hi it’s not as easy as that 

what make of dvr are you using and how old 

opening a PS file is not video ….. depending on your recorder type you might also find snap shot (photograph taken) 

this will be a ps file and you don’t need software to open it ….. you just send it direct to your printer

There is a couple of manufacturers that use the .ps file container for their proprietary video exports for example COP security.

Can you share a link to one of the clips as i may have a player.
