RIFF, the Resource Interchange File Format, is a format which stores data as chunks. RIFF files may store audio in one chunk, video in another, and meta information in a third. It uses FourCCs to distinguish between different chunks and codecs.

RIFF files start with the magic id "RIFF". RIFF is the underlying format for WAVE and AVI files.
