What is an .AVI file?

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

You may encounter AVI files in various 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 AVI videos 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.
