What is the .DV5 file type?

DV5 is an artificial format, invented and marketed by certain Asian companies as a means of distinguishing their DVR product lines from competition. DV5 is mainly attributed to AVTech. Like other private DVR-related formats, DV5 is based on using the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video codec because of its space-efficient compression algorithm.
