APE (Monkey’s Audio) is a lossless audio file format released in 2000 by Matthew T. Ashland. Because it’s a lossless sound format, it doesn’t lose data during compression, unlike other standard formats like AAC, MP3, and Vorbis. However, Monkey’s Audio is available on PC only. To play APE on Mac OS X and Linux, you’ll need a third-party plugin like JRiver Media Center.
AVI (Audio Video Interleave) is a digital multimedia container format developed by Microsoft in 1992 for its Video for Windows project. This file format saves both video and audio data in its container that supports synchronous audio-with-video playback. And like DVD format, AVI allows multiple audio and video streaming as well.
