Is there a lst of supported file types?
So far all I can import is Mp4 video, and audio is MP3, perhaps M4a too.
Maybe it is a limitation of my tablet, but it's getting to be a nuisance, I can't even use a WAV without converting in some other software.

I haven't seen a list of supported file types, and maybe the PDM can acquire and share a spec document.

I did a quick test by uploading 1 each: .avi, .mts, .m2ts, .m4a and .wav file to a folder on Google Drive.

When I try to import those 5 files, only 3 are visible and only one has a thumbnail, which is the .avi with MJPEG format. However, when I download that clip and try to add it to the timeline, I get a "media file format not supported" message. Also, the thumbnail changes to a blank film strip background with a large "?" on it.

When I click on the .mts clip, the thumbnail only shows a movie icon but I get a valid thumbnail once it's downloaded and I can add it to the timeline. Same with the .m2ts clip. Neither the .wav or .m4a clips are even shown and can't be downloaded.

In a nutshell. I only see .mts and .m2ts clips as supported beyond your .mp4 and .mp3 formats. No .avi, .m4a or .wav clips can be used, at least not in the formats I tested.

My phone is a Galaxy 8 and can handle 4K HEVC clips, so I imagine these limitations are stemming from the app rather than from weak hardware.

EDIT: I also tried an .avi clip in MPEG-4 Visual format, but it behaves exactly the same as the MJPEG clip

My testing shows no MPG, no MOV no WMV. It will take an MP4, but balked at my MTS then accepted it on the second try.
Yes on the M4a audio.
Curiously, it will take a PNG and use the transparency, and will take a motion GIF and take it in the other timelines and actually play it!
Does not seem to like M2T.

Hello Barry,

From what I've learned there is no set list for PowerDirector Mobile because the supported media files is device dependent, i.e. not all Android devices support the same media files, and iOS device support is different from Android.

So best bet is to check the supported file types for the device you are using from the manufacturer website. Hope that helps.

Cheers
