About AVI format:

Audio Video Interleave, known by its acronym AVI, is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video for Windows technology. AVI files contain both audio and video data in a standard container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playbacks. Like DVDs, AVI files support multiple streaming audio and video, although these features are seldom used

Despite its limitations and the availability of more modern container formats (see Matroska, Ogg and MP4), AVI remains popular among file-sharing communities. This is probably due to its high compatibility with existing video editor, like VirtualDub and player like Windows Media Player
