AVI video format
AVI, a short for Audio Video Interleave, is a file format
designed to store both audio and video data in a standard package
to allow its simultaneous playback. Created by Microsoft in
November 1992, AVI is one of the most commonly used video
formats. A variation of the AVI format, called DV
AVI, is used to create Digital Video that can be transferred
losslessly (without loss of quality) between computers and

AVI is a file format, but unlike other formats like MP3
or JPEG, AVI is a container format, meaning it can contain
video audio compressed using many different combinations of codecs.
So while MP3 and JPG can only contain a certain kind of
compression, an AVI file may carry audio/visual data in
almost any compression scheme, including:
- Full Frames (Uncompressed)
- Intel Real Time Video
- Motion JPEG
- Editable MPEG
- ClearVideo / RealVideo
- and others.
AVI all look the same on the "outside", but on the
"inside", they may be completely different.
So, the AVI format is dependent upon "codecs" (an
acronym for compressor / decompressor). Codecs serve two purposes:
they tell your computer how to encode (or compress) a video file
when you save the file, and they tell your computer how to decode
(or play) the file when you open the file. Since the same codec is
used for both compressing and playing the file, the choice of which
codec to use is extremely important. If the codec you use to
compress your file is not installed on your user's computer, your
user will not be able to play the video.
Using MovKit DVD Ripper Pro as AVI player you will be
offered to download and install an appropriate codec from our site
if one is not already installed. However, you should not count on
this feature, since downloads can be time consuming, and an
appropriate codec cannot always be located. Visit MovKit DVD Ripper Pro
- Specify a video codec to compress your file with. The
drop-down menu shows the codecs correctly installed on your
computer. You can download more codecs at MovKit DVD Ripper Pro
website. For some codecs, you can specify its options (such as
compression quality, bitrate mode and others) by clicking
Options. If you choose Full Uncompressed, no codec
will be used. This option provides best quality but largest file
size. Select Recompress to save your file using selected
codec and discard the orignial compression.
- If needed, enter new values for Width and Height
of your video. The dimensions are in pixels. Check Link of width
and weight to constrain the proportions. Check Biquadratic
approximation resizing for more precize resizing method,
resulting in the better picture quality.
- If needed, enter a new value for Frames per Second.
Larger values produce "softer" videos but require more system
- Specify settings for the audio stream. Choose Audio
format, frequency and Channels (Mono or Stereo).
Best audio quality (in terms of file size/quality) can be achieved
by selecting MP3 320 Kbit, 44100 kHz, Stereo.
