Evidence files are always created in an Evidence Manager-proprietary format. This means that if an evidence file is meant for legal matters, you can only open it from Evidence Manager. Evidence Files can be available as a folder, or a single file. In either case, when you attempt to view the video evidence, an instance of Evidence Player is first created, and the video in question starts playing inside this instance.

Evidence Player is an application that can play evidence files. It is created every time you create an evidence file, along with the video that you exported. If you selected to create a single evidence file, Evidence Player is embedded inside the video, else, it is created in the same folder as the evidence file.


To open an evidence file:

  1. Make sure that you have the evidence file or the evidence folder on the computer where you want to open it.

NOTE: Evidence Distribution

Evidence files might be distributed in a removable media such as a USB, a CD, or a DVD.

  1. (Single evidence file) Double-click the evidence file with the .exe extension. An Evidence Player instance is initiated, and the accompanying video starts playing in it.
  2. (Evidence folder) Play the video:
    1. Open the folder containing the evidence file.
    2. Look for a file of the type “Application”.
    3. Double-click this file. An Evidence Player instance is initiated, and the accompanying video starts playing in it.

NOTE: Folder Contents

Inside the evidence folder, you will see a file with a .avr, .avs, or a .video extension. This is the video that is rendered, and played inside the Evidence Player instance.
