Step 2. Create association of Windows Media Player with DV4 files

However, it may happen that the application itself does not cause the DV4 file to open in the Windows Media Player application, but you can set it manually. This option is available from the level of Properties of a specific file available in the context menu. The window will show, among other things, the type of the file and the information by which the program is used to launch the file. Changes can be made using the "Change" button. If there is no software on the list, simply select "Browse" and manually select the directory where the application is installed. Checking the "Always use the selected program ..." box will permanently associate the DV4 file with the Windows Media Player program.

Step 3. Update Windows Media Player to the latest version

The fault may also lie with the Windows Media Player program, it is possible that Bosch Security Systems CCTV Video Format requires a newer version of the program. This can be done using the application (if it provides such options) or from the Microsoft Corporation website and install the latest version.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the DV4 file

If the above steps do not help, you can assume that the file itself is not correct. This could be due to the file itself, the cleanest issues are:

Very often, the file may be size 0 or incomplete. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the DV4 file. The file should be downloaded again, making sure that the process has finished correctly.
The operating system may be infected with a computer virus. A quick virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should clear up any doubts. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. However, it is important to scan the entire system, not only the file DV4 or the program directory. As a result of the scan, sometimes it is not possible to recover DV4 files, which are deleted if there is a backup of this file, then after restoring it, it must also be scanned.
Older version of DV4 file may not always be supported by the latest software version. These problems are known and are often very easy to fix using the software developers's website.
There can be many reasons for the failure. The repair method must be adapted to the type of file and damage. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular DV4 file corruption. You can restore the file from a backup or use Bosch Security Systems help.
The program can also signal the fact of encryption. The encrypted file DV4 except for the special designation, works normally, but only on the device where it was encrypted, before transferring it to another machine, decryption is required.
Some of the system directories are excluded from modification. These directories are write-protected to them and it's very hard to fix this problem. If possible, you can try to move the DV4 file to another location.
This problem only occurs with more complex files. Some file types can only be opened in one program at a time. Closing other programs should help. Sometimes you have to wait for the session to the file DV4 to close. Antivirus programs or a backup being made may lock the file for a while without the user's knowledge. If the problem persists, restart the machine.
