How to open .rec files created by ATI VISION software? I want to get the data points out and analyze it in other software.

No. But it's not a multimedia file so i didn't even think that possibility. What makes you think VLC could work? – qazwsx Dec 24 '12 at 7:49
@PhillipR.: Just because some programs use overlapping extensions does not make the files the same format. In VLC's case it's a video recording, possibly from a PVR. – Karan Dec 24 '12 at 21:26
@PhillipR.: I thought he mentioned that ATI Vision is the software that created the files, and from its site it looks like it can open them as well to allow data analysis. IMO it's obvious that he's looking for insight into the file's format, so that he can parse it using other (free?) software (or maybe write something to do so himself). – Karan Dec 25 '12 at 16:14
@Karan, I just want to use some free or alternative softwares to open those files, so i can look at them and possibly copy them out. – qazwsx Dec 25 '12 at 20:33
