Before talking about converting ASX files to AVI format, I should tell you first what exactly ASX file are. This type of file is not a multimedia file format, but an XML file that indicates the location of an ASF or WMV video file (usually streamed). If you want to get the videos from your ASX file and turn them into the popular and widely-supported AVI format so that you can store and play them on your computer, then there are several steps that you will have to follow (which I will describe next).
