Yeah about that extension, from what I know Youtube videos and other misc' Tube sites house this kind of video format.

I used (SoThink Web Video Downloader) so it came out as .WV, I'm guessing it goes for all web DL applications.

It would take a pretty powerful converter to convert any file ext' like this that's not commonly known, like (Total Video Converter) or (Magic Video Converter) just to name a couple, that's what I'm using now.
