File extension AMV, DIR, and DXR share the similarity of being defined as a video file type. Taking into account that video files typically contain project resources, video files, audio, scripting codes, timelines, subtitles, and other components which are necessary to open and play a video or movie, Avanquest recently introduced recommendations on the main types of software to open AMV, DIR, and DXR files.
File extension AMV is a music video file which is saved in a low resolution format to facilitate ease of use with certain media player screens. This type of video file format is designed for use with Chinese media players which are portable and can be played on a computer using the same software which is used with a portable media player.
File extension DIR is a video file type that contains a movie project which was created with Adobe Director. DIR files contain project resources, links to external files, code which defines how the movie should be played, and other elements associated with successfully opening and playing a movie.
File extension DXR is similar to file extension DIR and contains a movie created with Adobe Director. DXR files are different from DIR files because they are saved in a locked format which cannot be edited by a video editing application.
Avanquest recommends a variety of software applications to open AMV, DIR, and DXR files. Most of the software applications are designed to open and edit video files. Some of the applications include the following.
Adobe Director: File extension DXR and DIR can be opened using Adobe Director 11.5, which is an application that is used to create videos, interactive games, simulations, and a variety of web applications. Adobe Director is available in a trial version on the Adobe website and is compatible with the Windows operating system and Mac OS X.
Shockwave Player: For Windows or Mac OS X, file extension DXR can be opened using Adobe Shockwave Player, which is an application that will display content created with Adobe Director. Shockwave Player is available as an unpaid download on the Adobe website.
Hollywood AMV Studio: File extension AMV can be opened using Callum Hollywood AMV Studio which is a utility application that includes an AMV player and a variety of editing tools for working with AMV files. Hollywood AMV Studio is available as an unpaid download on the My MPx Player.org website and is compatible with the Windows operating system.
iSwiff: DXR files can be opened using EchoOne iSwiff, which is an application that will play flash games, animations, and movies without having to use a web browser. It is available as an unpaid download on the EchoOne website and is compatible with the Windows operating system and Mac OS X.
