What is NUV?

Video Format Description

An NUV file is a NuppelVideo file with the file extension of ‘.nuv’. This video file format is used by MythTV (a Linux-based free software that turns a computer with the required hardware into a digital multimedia home entertainment system) for saving recordings of live TV.

NuppelVideo is a simple format that uses the fast RTjpeg codec to capture real time audio and video. Multiple codecs may be used for the audio and video, but they are all saved in the same NUV file. NUV is used on fast computers with the bttv-cards, and on slower ones (200MHz) with MMX capability.
