.DV is a file format used by many different digital camcorders usually on Mini DV cassettes.
Though the DV format employs a form of lossy video compression (applied in real-time as you record with your camera), it is still memory-intensive. When transferred to a computer, a DV clip roughly requires 1GB storage per 5 minute video clip. When saved in the camera's raw DV format, the clipa can be processed in several editing programs.
In most cases the files are stored as QuickTime DV or Microsoft DV AVI.
