An AVI file, which stands for Audio Video Interleave, is a widely used multimedia container format that was introduced by Microsoft in 1992. This format is designed to store both audio and video data, making it a popular choice for storing movies, video clips, and other multimedia content. AVI files use a lossy compression method to reduce file size while maintaining reasonable quality, making them suitable for various applications, including video editing and playback on different media players.

The AVI file format is based on the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF) architecture, which organizes data into chunks. Each chunk contains a specific type of information, such as video frames, audio samples, or metadata. One of the notable advantages of AVI files is their ability to support multiple codecs, allowing users to choose from a wide range of video and audio compression methods. However, the flexibility in codec selection can lead to compatibility issues, as not all media players or devices may support the same set of codecs.

Over the years, other container formats like MP4 and MKV have gained popularity due to their more efficient compression algorithms and broader compatibility across devices and platforms. Nevertheless, AVI remains a significant format in the world of multimedia, especially in legacy systems and certain niche applications that still rely on its characteristics and backward compatibility with older software and hardware.

PNG files are a widely used graphics file format used in areas where high-quality images (often with transparency) are required while also retaining a small file size. They are one of the most common formats of file used for web and print mediums and are particularly useful for logos, icons, and other images where multi-level transparency is desired.

The format itself was created in the 1990's with the main aim of storing computer graphics in a high-quality format while minimising the required storage space. The longer-term aim was to displace the GIF file format and make PNG the number one format for non-lossy, high-quality image formats on the then-burgeoning world wide web.

One of the selling points of the PNG format is its support for multiple levels of transparency, making it superior to the GIF format, which can only handle a single level of transparency. Also, like GIFs, the PNG format supports palletizing image colors down to 256 or 16 colors to help reduce the file size of the PNG.
