A BU file is a video file saved by a Samsung CCTV recording system. It is generated by the DVR and is saved in a proprietary format that is only recognized by Samsung hardware and software.

When a Samsung DVR saves a BU file, it also saves a corresponding .DB2 file that stores metadata about the BU video file.
