AVI to Blackberry: Convert AVI(Audio Video Interleaved) video to Blackberry with River Past Crazi Video

What is AVI?

Defined by Microsoft, AVI stands for Audio Video Interleave. It is a special case of the RIFF (Resource Interchange File Format). AVI is the most common format for audio/video data on the PC.

AVI is Microsoft's response to Apple's QuickTime technology. Early AVI files were limited on choice of video and audio codecs, quality, and resolution. However, with the introduction of DirectShow, AVI became a very flexible and powerful architecture. Some newer codecs including DivX and XviD enable AVI files to have similar or even better quality than DVD.

If you cannot add the AVI file, it may contain video and audio which use codecs not installed on your system. You can verify that by playing the AVI in Windows Media Player.
