What is an IVF file?
An IVF file contains video in the Indeo Video Format (IVF), also known as the "Intel Video Format." It stores video data encoded with the Indeo video codec. IVF files are typically home movies created with Intel video-editing software.
The IVF format includes a container header, a video stream header (similar to the header in the .AVI format), and an optional audio stream header. It also contains video stream information, container description chunks, and 32-bit data for each video frame.
