|Video for Windows (VFW)||
Video for Windows, or VFW, is the multimedia technology that ships as part of Windows 95. It can be added to earlier versions of Windows when you install a CD-ROM title or other program that uses VFW. Its playback files have the extension .avi and can be played using Windows' Media Player. Since the files are large, they are often compressed using a codec. Video for Windows is one of three video technologies used on personal computers. (The others are MPEG and QuickTime.)
