Some facts about AVI format

  • AVI stands for Audio Video Interleave and is a multimedia container format that often contains audio/video compressed with different codecs.
  • As AVI files are often encoded with different codecs, one may play just fine in your regular player, while another will make you search for the fitting codecs or another player.
  • If you are getting the "The document “movie.avi” could not be opened" message, it most probably means there is an issue with a video codec.
