How to Convert AVCHD to AVI Format?
What is AVCHD?
AVCHD is a tapeless high definition recording format. Instead of a tape, 8cm DVD media was chosen to the recording medium for AVCHD content. Blu-ray Disc would have seemed like a more logical choice considering the content that would be recorded into the format, but the DVD format was chosen for reasons of costs. Users being required to use blank Blu-ray media would make the format less affordable and would take away some of its charm when compared to other rival formats.
What is AVI?
AVI, which stands for Audio Video Interleave, is 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.
