However, many people encountered error message when they tried to insert the AVI video file into PowerPoint slide, no matter PowerPoint 2016, 2010, 2003, 2007 or lower version. Things could get even worse, you successfully add an AVI movie in PowerPoint, but you still get a "Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported" message when you play the video during a presentation. Well, read on to learn detailed reason and solution.



Why we can't insert an AVI video into PowerPoint PPT successfully?

First, look at the best Video Formats for PowerPoint:

The best video formats for PPT can be varied depending on what version of PowerPoint and what computer system you are using. Here is a concise list:

1. PowerPoint 2007 and lower version 

According to Microsoft, PowerPoint 2007 and lower version only support WMV, AVI, ASF, and MPG (MPEG-1) video formats,  However,   some .avi files may require additional codecs, if your computer doesn't install according video and audio codec, the AVI video embed may cannot playback in PowerPoint 2007/2003/2002/2000/97/95.

For the best video playback experience,
  • If you are using a Windows 8 or Windows 10 computer, we recommend you to use .mp4 videos encoded with H.264 video and AAC audio to inserted to PowerPoint 2013.
  • If you a Windows 7 or Windows Vista or Windows XP computer, we strongly recommend you to use WMV or MPEG-1 videos.
2. PowerPoint 2010 

Only support .mp4, .mov, and .qt formats if the Apple QuickTime player is installed. That's why you can't play AVI in PowerPoint 2010.

Only support .mp4 videos encoded with H.264 video (a.k.a. MPEG-4 AVC) and AAC audio. That's why you can't play AVI in PowerPoint 2013 or 2016.

In order to play all kinds of AVI in PowerPoint with no restriction, the simple and efficient way is to convert AVI to WMV (with WMV8 codec), AVI (with some ancient codec) or MPG format, which are universal formats among all versions of PowerPoint.

Step-by-step Guide: How to Convert MKV to Android formats

2. Click "Select Format" bar and you can select the "Device -> Android Phone" or "Android Tab" as the target format. Or you can directly choose a suitable video format depending on your certain device, including Nexus, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Kindle Fire, etc.

Another option is searching and installing an MKV player for Android like MX video Player, Rock Player, Mobo Player etc. If you have enough space in your device, you may directly use a third-party player to play MKV files on Android directly. However, you must have an Android video playing app that supports playing MKV.

Pros: It lets you play MKV files on Android phones without conversion.

Cons: Some other formats are still unplayable with a third-party Android video player. Besides, some apps will slow down your device. The worst is that most video players can't handle 1080p and 4K video files well: movies would stutter & lag during playback.

Here I recommend MoboPlayer, which is one of the best video players for Android platform. It supports various video and audio formats, including SWF, AVI, VOB, MKV, OGG, and AC3 and so on. So you can use it to enjoy your HD MKV on your Android phone without conversion.
