Files with the .AVR extension were first used on the 680x0-based Atari ST systems. Nowadays, they are not the first choice for many users, and most consider them outdated.
However, they were first developed with Mac computers in mind. Their purpose is to use them as storage for image, audio and video files. In addition, users also found them useful for editing because they did not lower the quality of other files. The editing process was also faster.
This file format contains one or two channels, and it can also provide a mono or stereo sampling rate for 8 or 16-bits. The trait that sets it apart from other similar files is the use of the MPEG-2 video codec transport stream.
Below you will find an index of software programs that can be used to open AVR files divided into 2 categories according to system platform supported. Files with AVR suffix can be copied to any mobile device or system platform, but it may not be possible to open them properly on target system.
Being unable to open files with AVR extension can be have various origins. On the bright side, the most encountered issues pertaining to Audio Visual Research Format files aren’t complex. In most cases they can be addressed swiftly and effectively without assistance from a specialist. The following is a list of guidelines that will help you identify and solve file-related problems.
Problems with opening and working with AVR files are most probably having to do with no proper software compatible with AVR files being present on your machine. This one is an easy one.

Sometimes software developers introduce new formats in place of that already supports along with newer versions of their applications. This can be one of the causes why AVR files are not compatible with Awave Studio. The most recent version of Awave Studio is backward compatible and can handle file formats supported by older versions of the software.
If the issue has not been solved in the previous step, you should associate AVR files with latest version of Awave Studio you have installed on your device. The next step should pose no problems. The procedure is straightforward and largely system-independent
Change the default application in Windows
Change the default application in Mac OS
