How to Fix an Unsupported File Format in Kinemaster
KineMaster is an excellent video editing tool for smartphones. With this app, you can make your videos look almost as good as if they were edited by a professional. It offers numerous functions, from overlays to transitions, and they’re all available right there on your phone.
There’s no need to turn to your PC when you want to make fantastic videos anymore. KineMaster does magic with different video formats. To learn which ones, and how to deal with the unsupported formats, keep reading this article.
What Are the Supported File Formats?
Supported video formats are MP4, 3GP, and MOV. You can import the following audio formats: WAV, MP3, M4A, and AAC.
Image formats you can work with include JPEG, BMP, PNG ad WebP. The GIF format is also available, but only as an image. When you save your video, the app exports it in MP4 format.
What if your phone is telling you the file format you’re trying to use is not supported? Here’s how to fix this issue.
Fixing the Unsupported File Format Issue
This problem can occur when you try to upload a video to the app. If it’s in the wrong format, it won’t upload, and you won’t be able to work on it. However, before you try to fix the format issue, check if the video has the appropriate aspect ratio. If you chose, for example, 16:9, make sure the video you’re trying to upload is in the same format.
If you want to add a video that’s in a wrong format, use a third-party app to convert the video to a supported file format so you can upload it to KineMaster. If you’re an iOS user, we recommend the iConv app. If you have an Android, try Video Converter & Compressor.
What Are Other Common Problems on KineMaster?
There are several other problems you may stumble upon while using KineMaster. Here’s how to fix them.
1. Codec Init Failed Error
This error is also related to an unsupported format. The app may detect your phone’s resolution incorrectly, and it may not be compatible with the video you’re editing. Follow these steps to solve the problem.
- Restart your phone.
- Launch the KineMaster app and open Settings.
- Select Device Capability Information.
- Tap More (three-dot icon) in the top right corner.
- Tap on Hardware Performance Analysis and run it.
- Wait till it’s done and restart the phone again.
2. Error Exporting on Android
Before anything, if you’re getting this message, make sure there’s enough space in your phone’s memory.
Visit the Google Play Store to check for available KineMaster updates because an outdated version of the app may be causing the problem.
Make sure you are not using screen recorders while the app is exporting your video. Screen recorders may interrupt the process and stop your phone’s gallery from receiving the video.
Try not to use any video apps until your video is saved to your phone to prevent them from interrupting the export process.
3. Not Detecting Media
Several things may cause KineMaster to not recognizing media from your phone. Maybe you’ve just installed it, so it hasn’t indexed everything yet.
If, after restarting your phone, the app still doesn’t detect media in storage, maybe you haven’t granted the necessary permissions for it to work correctly. Here’s how to check that.
- Open the Settings app.
- Scroll to find Apps or Apps Manager.
- Choose All Apps.
- Find KineMaster and tap to open.
- Select Permission and allow the app to access media files.
If the app isn’t working at all, deleting and reinstalling it again may work. Clearing cache, app data, and cookies could help as well. On the official KineMaster website, it’s possible to fill in a form and request support if you can’t fix the issue.
