Other applications associated with file type ASD:

  • Advanced Streaming Format (Description) by Microsoft CorporationAdvanced Streaming Format is an open file format specification for streaming multimedia files containing text, graphics, sound, video, and animation. Advanced Streaming Format (ASF) does not define the format for any media streams within the file. Rather, it defines a standardized, extensible file container that is not dependent on a particular operating system or communication protocol, or on a particular method (such as HTML or MPEG 4) used to compose the data stream in the file. An ASF file consists of three objects: a Header object containing information about the file itself, a Data object containing the media streams, and an optional Index object that can help support random access to data within the file. The ASF specification has been submitted to the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) for consideration. Windows Media Encoder no longer supports .ASD files. If you attempt to load an .ASD file, you will be asked to create a .WME file.
