AVI (Audio Video Interleave) is the most common format for audio/video data on computers. The Microsoft AVI file format is a RIFF (Resource Interchange File Format) file specification used to capture, edit, and play back audio-video sequences.
But AVI file format lacks time stamps embedded in the audio and video streams and it is not well suited for streaming video playback over Internet. So AVI is now considered to be an outdated container format. However, AVI is compatible with many existing video editing and playback software, so it’s still welcome by some people.
