Best Video Formats to Insert in PowerPoint 2016 on Windows/Mac

Sometimes PowerPoint will fail to play/insert video. Why? That’s because the video is not supported by PowerPoint. So what formats does PowerPoint support? Let us talk about that.

 

Video: In PowerPoint 2013 and later, for the best video playback experience, we recommend that you use .mp4 files encoded with H.264 video (a.k.a. MPEG-4 AVC) and AAC audio. In PowerPoint 2010, we recommend that you use .wmv files.

Audio: We recommend using .m4a files encoded with AAC audio. In PowerPoint 2010, we recommend that you use .wav or .wma files.

These and other common file formats are listed in the tables below.
