yes - the same device that provided the file has a web interface you can
connect to and download a viewer program.

Oh joy. Our atty's office received this file from a location here in
town, hoping we can get them to try and save this footage in some
format we can view.............

You will probably need to get a viewer program from them. I doubt you
will be able to modify the video or even want to.

Yeah, that's true. Could be challenged in court as it was "manipulation" and not in the original format (then you gotta go through all these other hoops to prove it's not been modified in the way that the defense would use).

It *does* open it up, but doesn't seem to want to play it, can't seem
to do anything w/ the file either.

Started to play, just looked like it was a pic from one camera, then a
different cam, just going back & forth.

none of the viewers I Have seen allow you to export in a sane format -
however, the dmi file can hold up to 16 different cameras, with
timestamps (and sound if available), and the viewer software is a
downloadable installer (although some of the newer ones also supply an
activex based web client, that is usable only with streamed media from
the server itself, not stored files)

get the suppliers of the file to also send you the installer for the viewer.

that is correct, yes. dmi contains sequential frames, one per camera in
the exported file. Depending on the software, some will export blank
frames also (the dmi file allows for 2,4,8 or 16 cameras; if you have 3
cameras exported, you get 3 populated and one blank frame in each
four-frame sequence)
