What is WTV?
Windows Recorded TV Show
WTV (Windows Recorded TV show) is a video format created by Microsoft. The WTV format has now replaced DVR-MS, which was used in earlier versions of Windows Media Center. A file with WTV specifications can contain video, sound, textual information, and other data. WTV supports DRM – a digital rights management system that protects digital media copyright. Dealing with WTV files can be a challenge for users, with the most common problem being the lack of integrated software that supports playback of WTV files. Check the list below if you’re unsure how to open WTV files.
WTV files are created with the help of the Stream Buffer Engine from TV content recordings made with Windows Media Center. Recorded footage of the WTV file type can be played in Windows Media Center. Inside WTV files, video data is encoded in h.264, MPEG-2, or MPEG-4, and audio data in Dolby Digital AC-3 or MPEG-1 Layer II.

What is AVI?
Audio Video Interleave
AVI, or Audio Video Interleave, is a container format created by Microsoft in November 1992. Files in the AVI format can store both video and audio data and allow synchronous audio-video playback. If you are wondering how to open AVI files, see the list of associated programs below.
AVI is a subformat of the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF). Data within this file type is divided into two blocks. One block stores the video width, height, and frame rate, while the other contains audio and video data. Certain media players may not play the original AVI specification correctly since it doesn’t support modern compression techniques.
