avi format is very old.

Stepmania 5 supports .mkv and .mp4 very well.
I am not aware of other programs besides Stepmania, maybe they upgraded as well.

Is it possible to allow other formats?

nothing is stopping you from uploading a custom zip with your video format of choice within

"3.6 not great not TERRIBLE ok."
i'm probably the only proponent of the OP's post, but i'd support more video format compatibility for stepmania

(I have at least 1,000 .m4v bgas from the DDR Universe games (courtesy of 500MASTER) that I can't exactly quickly convert)

Newer arcade IIDX games use WMV, and all arcade DDR games (via BEMANI PC) use M2V (both extentions are unsupported by StepMania)

I understand that AVI format is an old extension, but can be reduce space by adding XviD, MPEG-4, MJPEG or, only for SM 5+, H.264 codecs.
