AVI is a video format developed by Microsoft. It uses less compression to store files which is why an AVI video is usually larger than the same video in other similar format like MOV.
If you have an AVI file and you want to send it via email or share it on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter or another social media, then you need to compress it first as all the web services have a size limit.
