📌 An .ASF resource definition is oriented on multimedia files stored in the Advanced System Format (ASF), a commercial proprietary container extension dedicated for storing and processing video and audio content. In the basics, the .ASF schema may store and open video and audio data in collaboration, or audio content only, together with respective metadata, such as bibliographic copyright, author, and title info markers. Originally, the Microsoft enterprise intended to utilize .ASF technology to stream media online, at most. However, in the consequent years, the third-party corporate affiliates began to encode small-sized media clips in the shape of .ASF file samples and exchange them across the web.
📌 The .ASF file items can be smoothly uncovered, played back and opened up by various media players. As long as the original container may include either audio or audio and video data in conjunction, you may refer to Microsoft Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic, Winamp, VLC, CyberLink PowerProducer or other designated suites for media streaming and processing. Besides, if you desire to review the .ASF file entity on iPhone or iPad, you are granted a chance to make use of the PlayerXtreme Media Player solution, able to open and decode .ASF data in an affordable and fluent way. Furthermore, you may also decompress and convert the source file data to .AVI, .MKV, .MP4 or other up-to-date technological standards in order to be able to transform the file content into a more accustomed and habitual shape.
