Audio Video Interleave (AVI) is a multimedia container developed by Microsoft. AVI is a descendant of the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF). With the assistance of third-party programs, AVI can support chapters, captions, subtitles, menus, streaming, attachments, and 3D containers.
Microsoft provides a downloadable and free AVI Viewer. Another way to view an AVI file is to use a version of Microsoft Windows Media Player that is compatible with the operating system.
While AVI files are optimized for the Internet, hardware players support them as well. If an AVI file does not open, then use VLC media player.

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a common and widely supported video format. It compresses the file size with a codec resulting in an easy-to-manage file that maintains the quality of the video. A digital container format, called Advanced Systems Format (ASF), often encapsulates WMV files.
Most media players can open and read WMV (and ASF) files. The best player for opening a WMV file is Microsoft Windows Media Player. Microsoft developed WMV and ASF, and many videos online today are WMV files. VLC media player is another reliable option, which can play multimedia files across several platforms.
WMV is also easy to convert to other video file types. However, keep in mind that the conversion process might cause picture quality to decrease. If a conversion is needed, then HandBrake is a free and open-source tool for converting WMV files.
