Sorry, it was a bad choice of wording.
Right, I did not mean the dv avi types.

What I am looking for is the pre-1996 avi format without extensions.

(I was referring to "AVI 2.0" which Wikipedia says the format is called
with the extensions, so I assumed that the former format would be called
"AVI 1.x")
