Video and audio file formats supported in PowerPoint

In PowerPoint 2013, you can insert and playback many different video and audio file formats. For the best video playback experience, we recommend that you use .mp4 videos encoded with H.264 video (a.k.a. MPEG-4 AVC) and AAC audio. For audio, we recommend using .m4a files encoded with AAC audio.

 Important    Certain older video file formats may not compress or export properly in Office on a Windows RT PC. Instead, use modern media formats such as H.264 and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), which PowerPoint 2013 RT supports. Want to see what version of Office you're using?

The following tables show the video and audio file types you can use with PowerPoint. PowerPoint may also support additional file types if you install additional video and audio decoders on your PC.
