Try with VLC first thing:

If it doesn't work you can try demuxing the files with ffmpeg, I presume you are in a situation similar to this one:

CCTV systems can be a pain in the backside and often have proprietary formats.

This is quite good and supports a wide variety of them: https://demux.co.uk/cctv-analysis-products/dvr-examiner/

Always start with the proprietary company and their software. 

Usually you can take a thumbdrive into the unit, format the dates, and download.
OR there is a viewer from a software site to view the files from.

One bad thing about the viewers is, sometimes they force you to look at very small boxes which if enlarged don't scale well.

@rich2005 yes dvr examiner is good one but it won't recognise the drive if its formatted in NTFS format.

So finally Mycctv dvr recovery software came to help. I scanned the drive with this and don't no from where it found all the footage in .avi format. All other data recovery software's only found some . swf format files.
