Why can’t I add AVI to PowerPoint for presentation?

Found some torrent movies or TV shows in AVI format, or some family AVI footages from your digital camcorders or mobile phone that is perfect for your PowerPoint presentation and would like to embed it  to make the PPT more interesting and appealing? 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.

3. PowerPoint 2013 or 2016

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. This solution will ensure that you can insert any AVI files into PowerPoint slide for playing successfully. Here are two parts to finish your task.

How to Make AVI files Work in Final Cut Pro X and FCP 6/7

Have problems importing AVI files to FCP for editing? This tutorial will show you what's the simple solution to fix the problem. After converting AVI to FCP supported format, you can freely edit all kinds of AVI videos on Final Cut Pro X/7/6 at will.



Normally, Final Cut Pro (FCP X included) can recognize some AVI files from cams. There are some instances, however, that importing an .avi file into Final Cut Pro doesn't go successfully. In fact, Final Cut Pro only reads AVI that both the audio and the video were compressed by using a codec that FCP can recognize. If your AVI video files are not imported, it's because of the codec used to create the AVI file is not supported by Final Cut Pro. 

If you want to edit AVI in FCP, the easy option would be adjusting those unsupported AVI to a more editing-friendly format, such an FCP's Apple Prores codec by using Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac, which support all regular format, including but not limited to Apple Prores, AIC, DNxHD, MOV, FLV, MP4, M4V, MPG, etc. After AVI files are converted, you can import to FCP without any hassle. 

By running it, there's no need to set the codec by yourself: the Mac program has three optimized presets for FCPiMovieAvid MCAdobe Premiere, etc.. If you're using Windows users, please get Dimo Video Converter Ultimate which can also create FCP native Prores codec. Just get the right program and follow the step-by-step guide to transcode AVI for editing in Final Cut Pro X/7/6.

How to Convert AVI and Import AVI to Final Cut Pro X/7/6

Note: If you are also a FCP X user, before you try to do the conversion, don't forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.

Step 1: Load AVI files to the program

Launch the AVI to FCP Converter and click "Add File" button to locate the .avi file(s) you want to add. Batch video conversion is supported in the latest upgraded version.



Step 2: Select output format

When it comes to choosing the output format for these target videos, you directly one choose "Editor >Final Cut Pro" preset. For compression, Apple ProRes 422 will do fine for keeping the original AVI quality the same and creating a Final Cut friendly file format. Apple has made a few variations to the ProRes family - use ProRes 422(Proxy) or (LT) for smaller file sizes (Applied to FCP 7 and above version).

Step 3 (Optional): Adjust the video, audio settings

Click "Settings" to fix the frame rate, bitrate, video size, etc to your needs. If you want to edit in Final Cut without having to render the clips while editing, all the frame sizes must be the same as the sequence settings. You can save a lot of render time by making all the clips the same size with this Mac AVI converter.



Step4: Start AVI to ProRes conversion on Mac

Click the big "Start" button at the bottom right corner to finish transcoding AVI to ProRes for FCP. When the conversion is done, you can find the output files by clicking "Open" button on the main interface, then you can transfer the encoded AVI files to your Final Cut Pro X, FCP 7 or 6 to edit with ease. Once you've got your video edited, you can export to any codec/container that you'd like for playing and sharing.
