For TLC Creative Services, I developed a slide deck that the 5 most common video formats. To test a computer’s setup, we just open this PowerPoint presentation, go to the video format we want to confirm the computer is configured to play and see what happens. If the video plays, we know the computer and PowerPoint are setup for that format and then can troubleshoot the client file with the knowledge that it is not the computer or PowerPoint.
Feel free to download our PowerPoint Video Test Toolkit and use as needed.

Also, check out the Sept 11 post of the video reference chart to know if a computer’s configuration is going to play a video format.
