*Unsupported in macOS 10.13 High Sierra, read here for more information.

Not all combinations of containers, codecs, or file extensions are supported, despite the list above, and this support varies depending on your combination of Serato DJ software version & operating system. With Windows operating systems, users should consider that installed third-party codec packs can also affect support.
We continue to recommend that users encode their files in the recommended format as described in our What is the recommended file format for Serato Video article.
