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.

MKV is a container format for holding multiple audio, video, picture, and text data such as subtitle tracks. It is similar to other common containers like MP4 and AVI, although MKV is open in the specification. For video contents, MKV uses a .mkv filename extension, .mka for audios, and .mks for subtitles.
