I downloaded the police dash cam video, of the Keith Scott shooting, which probably has the full footage, since they released all that they have today. It is inside a Zip folder, and the file type is .av. How do I play an .av file?

VLC could not identify the audio or video codec

I did. That code is the result. *sigh*

I tried renaming it .avi. And the player came up "corrupt". Go figure.
Finally, I read the README_FIRST file and it says this:
"This video will not play on Windows 10, Mac or Linux.
"This video should play on Windows 7."
WTH? How lame is it to "release" video of the dash cam that cannot be played on the most ubiquitous systems available to the public???

You need to use GPlayer to display this format as it is used in certain dashcams and cctv.
Download it from here:
There is also a youtube video that helps

I got nowhere with that GPlayer either. The file name appears in the top of the GPlayer, but clicking buttons does nothing at all. In the middle of the screen it still says "Open".
YouTube link your YouTube video led me to that one. But there isn't an .av or .avi option in the dropdown of the converter. So the VLC player/converter crashes and the "converted" file is c. 40 bytes, i.e. not there other than the file icon.
