MVI is a special video format. It is used for videos recorded by digital cameras, such as Canon, and cannot be compatible with most media players and common devices. Therefore, you need to convert it to other common formats, such as converting MVI to AVI, MP4 and so forth.

Have You Ever Encountered MVI Files Cannot Be Played?

Q: I recently bought a Canon Powershot ELPH 130 and I absolutely love it. It takes fantastic pictures as well as video. The problem is, I have no idea how to convert my video files, which save as MVI into something I could use for my editing software. Have any tips?

A: MVI is divided into two categories. One is a kind of movie command file with instructions, which has no actual files within this format.
