DivX video, WMA audio or Indeo video and PCM audio, depending on the codec used. Recording in AVI format can be made both with and without compression. To encode data in AVI, it is usually used Motion JPEG codec. It supports such compression formats as Microsoft Video 1 which only works with 8- and 16-bit color, Microsoft RLE, it’s good only for 8-bit color, Indeo, and Cinepak Editable MPEG that only uses I-frames. Most often the data in the AVI container are encoded as well as decoded by using the DivX codec.
