Hey Mike, welcome

Storyline supports numerous video file formats. SWF, FLV, and MP4 are natively supported. Other video file formats will be automatically converted to MP4 when you insert them into Storyline. The following file formats will be converted to MP4 when they are imported into Storyline:

  • 3G2
  • 3GP
  • ASF
  • AVI
  • DV
  • M1V
  • M2V
  • M4V
  • MOV
  • MPE
  • MPEG
  • MPG
  • QT
  • WMV

And here's a quick reference of how Storyline encodes movies you insert into your courses, based on the file format of your videos and the publishing options you choose. 

Hope it helps!

Please keep in mind that SWF files are not supported in the Articulate Mobile Player and SWF files are not supported in HTML5 content.

I hope this information helps with your project. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks and welcome again!

Peter and Christine,

Thanks for the response.  I am busy walking through all the tutorials that have been put together on Storyline.  I am a regular user of the Articulate Suite software, but finally broke down and got Storyline.  We are doing so much more with the iPad now, this will be a great addition as well.  You will probably see me a lot here on these forums.

Mike
