DAT file is a file format written to save sounds, midi, wave, pallets, images, and levels. In short, this file format contains vital information for specific software, and the data is usually in either binary or plain text. In rare cases, DAT files may include a video file. DAT files are opened using text editors like Notepad++ and TextEdit.
DV (Digital Video) is a file created using a digital format and saved as raw data. A DV file contains 80-byte DIFs (Digital Interface Blocks), with each block having video, audio, and metadata. DVD files use lossy compression for videos, while sounds stay uncompressed. And although it was originally meant for tape recording, DV can also save data on hard disc drives and optical discs.
