What is AVI?

AVI (Audio Video Interleaved) is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video for Windows technology. It adopts the lossy compression to video file, and the compression is relatively high, although the picture quality is not very good, its application is still a very wide range. AVI files can contain both audio and video data in a file container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback. Like the DVD video format, AVI files support multiple popular audio and video, although these features are seldom used. AVI information is applied to multimedia CD-ROM to save the TV, movies and other image information.
