What is WTV?
Windows Recorded TV Show
WTV (Windows Recorded TV show) is a video format created by Microsoft. The WTV format has now replaced DVR-MS, which was used in earlier versions of Windows Media Center. A file with WTV specifications can contain video, sound, textual information, and other data. WTV supports DRM – a digital rights management system that protects digital media copyright. Dealing with WTV files can be a challenge for users, with the most common problem being the lack of integrated software that supports playback of WTV files. Check the list below if you’re unsure how to open WTV files.
WTV files are created with the help of the Stream Buffer Engine from TV content recordings made with Windows Media Center. Recorded footage of the WTV file type can be played in Windows Media Center. Inside WTV files, video data is encoded in h.264, MPEG-2, or MPEG-4, and audio data in Dolby Digital AC-3 or MPEG-1 Layer II.

MPEG-4 Part 14, also known as ISO/IEC 14496-14:2003, is one instance of a more general standard (ISO/IEC 14496-12:2004) with specifications based on Apple’s QuickTime File Format. The MPEG-4 container uses AAC for encoding audio as a means to restrict data copying via lossy compression and playback. Like its many counterparts, the container supports web streaming.
