wav The Waveform Audio file format associated with the .wav filename extension was a format developed through collaboration between Microsoft and IBM. It is an extension of the RIFF and was first released in 1991. It is one of the earliest standards used for encoding audio bit streams on personal computers. It is typically used for storing uncompressed raw audio files on the Microsoft Windows platform, however it enjoys cross platform support on Macintosh and Linux and does have support for compressed audio. Because of the relatively large file sizes of uncompressed .wav files, the WAVE format in unpopular for file distribution over limited bandwidth computer networks including the internet.
amv The AMV video file format is a proprietary video container which was created for Chinese made and video enabled S1 MP3 players and MP4 players. The goal of the format was to primarily lower the cost of hardware components and royalty fees required for video playback using other container formats on these video enabled devices. The .amv file type is a modified version of the more commonly known AVI multimedia container with the video codec being a version of motion JPEG (MJPEG) format.
