ASF stands for Advanced Systems File and formerly known as Advanced Streaming Format. An .asf file is a container which may contain video (Windows Media Video with .wmv extension), audio (Windows Media Audio with .wma extension), metadata such as the artist, title, album, genre, director, etc. As a streaming file format, the main advantage of .asf file is that it starts playing as soon as a minimum number of bytes is received and the rest of the download continues in the background while one is watching or listening.
However, due to it being designed for streaming, one disadvantage of ASF is that the maximum resolution is a relatively small 352x288. Besides, ASF is compatible with only a few media players, namely, Windows Media Player and VLC. It is obviously so limited to meet our video enjoying needs. The practical way out is to convert ASF to a more popular video format, such as converting ASF to AVI.
