Avi - video format, proposed by Microsoft in 1992.
At the moment, avi is supported by most existing players and video players.
There are hundreds of players in the avi format. Some are multi-format, others support only one avi format. KMPlayer is a popular utility for viewing wmv, flv, mp4, mpeg and avi file formats. KMPlayer supports professional work with subtitles and high-definition video.
Another multi-format player,Which supports the avi format, is Windows Media Player (standard for Windows OS). In general, the Microsoft player is coping well with its own format, but there are problems with playing "heavy" volume HD files. Also, users often complain about the "mixing" of audio tracks (translation and original) when watching movies avi format in Windows Media Player.
The Free Avi Player supports onlyFormat avi. But it takes up little disk space and economically disposes of RAM. Thanks to this video files are easily viewed, movies and clips do not "brake". However, the simplicity of the player of some users confounds - they complain about the small functionality and poorly thought out design.
To convert from different formats to aviThere are specialized tools. One of the most popular is the shareware program Movavi. The conversion speed is high, the number of input formats exceeds 40. Also the converter offers a rare (for similar utilities) function "Screen Capture". In Movavi, you can also make professional subtitles.
Most of the existing video convertersAllows you to translate the video of each input format to another output that is in the library. In other words, avi is the same peer format as mkv, wmv or mpeg.

Nevertheless, this free program has tremendous functionality (more than 25 input and output formats) and high speed. Moreover, in addition to transferring files to avi format, Format Factory can convert video to the format of animated gif images.
