File Extension ASF

Information about ASF files and how to open them

The ASF - Advanced systems format file is a file which stores and contains proprietary video and audio information. The ASF format was developed by Microsoft Inc. mostly for the purpose of streaming video and audio, as well as other media. Such a fhile typically contains the audio and video data as well as sometimes metadata. Metadata is the underlying information about a specific file or media, including it's title, copyright date, credits and contributions, date created, etc. ASF files contain the media itself, as previously mentioned, but they do not determine how each type of media is encoded. They do, however determine the structure of the audio or video stream. These files can be compressed using virtually any video codex application, making it simple and painless for the user wishing to compress them. Most often, because the ASF was developed by Microsoft, it primarily features WMA (Windows Media Audio) or WMV (Windows Media Video). Although these may not be ideal media formats, the file and it's format is rather useful.
