What is AVI?
AVI is the initials of Audio Video Interleaved. As its name suggests, AVI files contain both audio and video data in a file container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback. One of the common feature of AVI and DVD video format is they support multiple streaming audio and video, although these features are seldom used in AVI. Although AVI is widely used, it has some limitations. For example, AVI does not provide a standardized way to encode aspect ratio information, with the result that players cannot select the right one automatically. And AVI files we've seen are generally very big. Typically we would convert and compress AVI files generated by digital video (DV) devices into other video formats like MP4, WMV, DVD, RMVB, etc.
