What is AVR file?

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 Nowadays, they are not the first choice for many users, and most consider them outdated.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.

Programs that support AVR file


We hope we helped you solve the problem with the AVR file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the AVR file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the AVR file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the AVR file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the AVR file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the AVR file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
