AVI Viewer solution provides a structural representation of the AVI container. Supports the original Microsoft AVI format (.avi), ODML, Type 1, Type 2, Matrox AVI defined chunks and DivX file format (.divx). Binary hex view is available along with the chunk tree view. Binary hex data editing of chunk data. Along with the presentation capabilities, the AVIViewer can perform AVI and DivX container validation.
AVI Viewer Pro offers AVI and DivX files verification and validation according to the Microsoft’s AVI format standard.

AVI Viewer Ultimate is a product extension of the AVI Viewer Pro. Along with the standard functionality of AVI Viewer Pro, the extended product includes DV, DV 50 and DV 100 video validation, which enables not only the container validation but also the video elementary streams validation in case of DV stream format. The elementary streams validation process is performed by on-the-fly demultiplexing and verification of all audio and video elementary streams subsequently.

Let’s talk about specifics
AVI Viewer’s General Info
All container errors, such as important AVI chunks absence, incorrect container structure or invalid header values, pointed as mandatory in the corresponding specification are output as Error Report. All container irregularities, which are not pointed as mandatory in the corresponding specification, but have unusual content are output as Warning Reports. Additionally there is a set of Informational Reports, which deliver more detailed information about the file being examined, such as the stream format, media duration, etc.
Each AVI container check can be disabled or enabled or set to another report type, such as Info, Warning or Error. The solution can be applied in wide variety of workflows and with many container format deviations due to its flexibility and customization ability.
The validation report output can be exported into XML report file, containing the full report information in standard XML format. This allows easy integration of the solution with any digital media workflow and further processing of the report information with any third party systems.
The validation takes only a few seconds for an average long and complex media file to be processed.
