An AVI (Audio Video Interleaved) file is a sound and motion picture file that conforms to the Microsoft Windows Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF) specification. AVI files (which end with an .avi extension) require a special player that may be included with your Web browser or may require downloading.(Audio Video Interleave) A multimedia container format from Microsoft that has been widely used for video playback in the Windows world. AVI was the first A/V format for Windows. Based on the RIFF format, AVI is known as a "container format" because it is used for multiple encoding methods, not just one. For example, AVI video compression methods (video codecs) include DivX, Xvid, Cinepak, Indeo, DV and Motion JPEG, as well as uncompressed RGB and YUV2. AVI audio includes compressed MP3 and Microsoft's ADPCM (MS ADPCM), as well as uncompressed PCM.AVI was one of the first digital formats to intermix small chunks of video and audio one after the other; hence, the name "interleave." See RIFF and multimedia container.

SWF (acronym of "Shockwave Flash") is a proprietary file format for multimedia and especially vector graphics. It was developed by Macromedia and is now, following their acquisition, coming from Adobe. Intended to be small enough for publication on the web, SWF files can contain animations or applets of varying degrees of interactivity and function. SWF is also sometimes used for creating animated display graphics and menus for DVD movies, and television commercials.
