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

A .lrv file stores captured video by GoPro. It 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.

If you need to playback GoPro LRV MPEG-4 video without default GoPro software, rename lrv file extension to mp4.

Now you are able to playback video in VLC Player, QuickTime Player, Windows Media Player etc.
