Information about the .avi (avi) file type

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .avi (avi) file type.

.avi
Audio Video Interleave (AVI) file, used for Windows based movies. AVI files are media files which contain both audio and video.

Occasionally a .avi file will have subtitles stored in a separate .srt file. This has the advantage (over including subtitles as part of the video presentation) in that it allows the media player to turn subtitles on or off.
