What is LRV File? Can I Convert LRV to MP4?

If you've ever shot video with a GoPro, you must have noticed that three different types of files are generated on the SD card after each shot. One of them is an LRV file (the other two are MP4 and THM files, where the latter stands for thumbnail). You can see that LRV files are much larger than THM files, but relatively smaller than MP4 files. This leads you to wonder what these .lrv files are. Well, here's the answer.

LRV is short for Low Resolution Video. It is created in parallel with MP4 files and is used to store videos recorded by GoPro devices. However, LRV files are of much lower quality (240P, 29.97 fps) compared to HD MP4 files. You can open and watch LRV videos in media player like VLC, Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, etc.

The main uses for LRV files are for previewing on the GoPro mobile app and editing on low-end computers (you can swap LRV with the original HD MP4 video before rendering). This way, your device can process GoPro files more smoothly.

Can I Convert the LRV File to MP4?

Similar to MP4, LRV is a video format that can store video content encoded using the MPEG-4 codec. Therefore, you can easily convert LRV files to MP4 as long as you have a suitable LRV converter.
