A Container format used by Microsoft’s Video for Windows multimedia framework. Since it was developed for Windows 3.1 in 1992 it lacks some features found in newer containers like MPEG or MP4, but is still widely used by consumers and even supported by some standalone DVD players. Although still supported in Windows, and suitable for certain formats like DV, it’s not a good general purpose container, and even Microsoft uses other containers for their own video formats.
