AVI is a popular audio and video file format that was developed by Microsoft in 1992. It was the very first format for working with video-audio in the old version of Windows 3.1. Now the developers are updating it, they have improved the quality of compression and viewing of media files in this format. AVI is an abbreviation. Audio Video Interleave is fully written. Files with this extension can be played by various video players due to their simple architecture. AVI remains the most popular video format for viewing on a computer. It features high definition and retains the best quality when transcoding video files. In most cases, you do not need to install additional codecs to view clips in this format, since they are built into each player by default. This media container can contain multithreaded video and audio tracks and allow their synchronous playback. Videos with sound in this format are played by the standard built-in media player in all operating systems of the Windows family. Due to the sufficient popularity of the format, it can be opened not only in the Windows operating system, but also in Linux and Mac OS. In addition, files of this format can be opened in smartphones with Android OS and iPhones.

Lovers of digital music, which can be listened to on a computer, modern player or mobile gadget, often come across files with the .wma extension. A file with a WMA file extension is a Windows Media Audio file. Microsoft created this format to compete with MP3 and is often used for music storage and online streaming. A WMA file contains an audio recording or music composition in a format developed by Microsoft. The file stores the track and the metadata describing it: track title, artist name, album name and music genre. Most often, the abbreviation WMA refers to the WMA Standard codec - it was originally developed as a competitor to MP3. As a result of considerable efforts on the part of Mirosoft, WMA can now be called one of the most common formats after MP3. The WMA format is distinguished by a high compression rate of audio data, support for DRM protection, multi-channel surround sound encoding without loss of quality. The performance of WMA (Windows Media Audio) itself is not that bad at all. Thus, the manufacturer claims that a compressed music file with a bitrate of 160 kbps is in no way inferior in quality to an MP3 file with a similar rate of 256 kbps. The WMA format is known for its bugs. If, for some reason, some part of the .WMA file is damaged, then listening to the file becomes problematic, both a couple of tens of seconds before the place of damage, and after.
