>From the documentation for Import (
http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Import.html):

Import handles a large number of formats, each typically with many
different possible elements. The possible formats are given in the list
$ImportFormats, and in the guide "Listing of All Formats".

http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/guide/ListingOfAllFormats.html


Select[$ImportFormats, # == "MP4" || # == "AVI" &]


{"AVI"}
