One of my friends had recorded some videos using Panasonic HDC-HS900 as part of her research. She would like to insert the camcorder videos to Keynote on Mac for presentation. However, the resulting HD videos are in AVCHD .mts files which could not be imported to Keynote. With the 1080/60p recording mode, the videos play great on the HS900 camcorder, however, Mac is not compatible with this format, not even iMovie, Final Cut or others.
What movie and video file types will play in Keynote?
Keynote uses QuickTime to display content, so if you can open it in QuickTime Player and play it with no problems, you should be able to use it in Keynote (except, of course, protected videos from the iTunes).
Media formats supported by QuickTime Player:
Note: In OS X Mavericks, some older media formats listed above, and those that require third-party codec components, are converted to H.264 or Apple ProRes when opened. These older media formats can be played without conversion using QuickTime Player 7.
QuickTime Player plays Motion JPEG-based AVIs created by many digital cameras. Other forms of AVI media may require third-party software for playback.
AVCHD 3D content is converted to standard video for playback and export.
A more powerful Mac will deliver improved performance.
