I’m a PhD student in the UK and have recently recorded some videos on the microscope in our lab. These worked well and I could view them at the time of filming but now I have no way to open them. They are saved as .lvi files. When I researched this file format online one of the few things that came up was a forum post from 10 years ago (http://imagej.1557.x6.nabble.com/lvi-files-td3688360.html) which discussed getting support for these files in Bio-Formats. I have downloaded Bio-Formats but from looking through the documentation I can’t see that .lvi files are supported?
From further reading (http://imagej.1557.x6.nabble.com/AVI-Virtual-Stack-gt-1GB-boundery-td3693422.html#a3693453) I saw that I could try renaming the file to a .avi file and windows media should read this. Unfortunately I had no success here.
Can anyone suggest what I can try to open my .lvi files?
