What is a avi file?

Audio Video Interleave, or AVI, was introduced in the early 90s by Microsoft as part of “Video for Windows.” Video for Windows enabled digital video to be played by Microsoft Windows. With AVI, a single file could have both audio and video; the format is often compared to the DVD video format. Both AVI and DVD can support multiple streaming audio and video. There are a number of issues with the file format—it cannot support select contemporary features such as B-Frames, nor does it contain aspect ratio information, meaning that the aspect ratio must be manually selected through the player. AVI files can be played with Free File Opener.
