It allows the simultaneous playback by keeping video and audio into a single file. The simple architecture of .avi format will enable it to run on various operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix. It is supported by multiple web players as well.
Technical details🔵 AVI format uses Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF) support, where the real data is stored into chunks, and each chunk gets recognized by a FourCC tag. Out of these individual chunks, the first one can be recognized by the hdrl tag, and it can decode the chunk containing metadata for the video. The second chunk gets identified by the movi tag, and it includes the actual audio and visual data which makes up the AVI movie. It uses less compression rather than the MOV and MPEG file formats.
