Source From: What if you can't embed MP4 video in PowerPoint

Nowadays, it is popular to embed video to PowerPoint presentation, which can make PowerPoint presentation much more entertaining and informative to its viewers. As we all know, PowerPoint 2013 or 2016 only supports .mp4 videos encoded with H.264 video (a.k.a. MPEG-4 AVC) and AAC audio. It can't recognize some other MP4 files. Since the best format that all PowerPoint versions can support are AVI and WMV, which are created by Microsoft itself, to add MP4 video into PowerPoint, you'll need to convert MP4 to AVI or WMV and then add the converted video to PPT for playing. The following guide instruct you how to add MP4 to PowerPoint.
