.bik file is officially known as Bink video. Bink Video is an excellent video file format with high compression ratio, high picture quality, and high audio quality, which is better than MPEG2 encoding format. It is widely used in Computer Electronic Game, which are specifically represented as opening animation movies, mission story animation movies, and copyright declaration animations.
However, there are few media playback tools which support Bink Video format files because of the lack of a decoding system. Playing Bink Video in the game usually uses the game's built-in decoding system, or self-development, or the official release version.
