What is an .AVI file?

The Audio Video Interleave (AVI) multimedia container format is used to store video and audio data that may be encoded in a variety of codecs, including DivX and XviD. The format is based on the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF) and was introduced in 1992 by Microsoft and is still commonly used today. AVI files are typically created by video editors and converters to store short video clips, home movies, TV shows, and movies.

You may encounter AVI files in a variety of ways, such as downloading video from the Internet, ripping video from a disc, or exporting home video from a video editor. You may also receive video from co-workers, family members, or friends. You can use File Viewer Plus to play your AVI files and even convert the video to the MP4 format at different resolutions and bitrates.
