Description
Windows Media Video (WMV) is a video format and is a part of Advanced Systems Format (asf) container. Microsoft developed this format. WMV files can be facilitated by a variety of Operating Systems such as Mac as well as the PC. A few WMV files also have the digits right management (DRM) protection, so unauthorized can't make copies of the recordings, basically the ones purchased from an online store.
Technical details
The exclusive codecs developed by Microsoft can be obtained while a WMV file is compressed. Users can use Windows Media Video 9 Professional. It allows them to play their respective file at resolutions surpassing 300,000 pixels (having a screen resolution as low as 528x576) with an exceptional bit rate of 1000 Kbit/s. The high definition abilities make WMV files an ideal choice for HD DVD and Blu-ray disks. WMV 9 format is the one you should be looking for, and it is also comparable to H.264 Main and High Profile. It does not support various activities, such as multiple reference frames and context-adaptive binary arithmetic coding (CABAC). Lower bit-rates can reveal the differences between WMV and its competitors.

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.
