What types of files are compatible with SyncSketch?

Learn which file formats are supported


Nearly everything. We support all of the most common video container formats and compression schemes used by content creation professionals, including (but definitely not limited to) the following: 

Supported Container Formats & Codecs

Container Format File Extension Codec
MPEG-4 .mp4 H.264
WebM .webm VP8
QuickTime .mov H.264
Matroska .mkv H.264

We know that it’s difficult to predict what types of formats might be uploaded to SyncSketch, so our goal is to accept every video format possible.  Apart from those listed above, we support dozens more container formats and video codecs that content creation professionals wouldn't normally care about.

    If you find something we don’t yet support, let us know – chances are we can figure out a way to make it work.
