Supported File Formats

NetX can support the upload, storage, and download of any and all file formats, but the ability to generate proxies (thumbnail, preview) or repurpose derivatives depends on the Transcoding Engines installed in the environment. Many common file types have additional processing and conversion options available in addition to what is listed below. If there is a file format that you do not see on this list but would like us to verify support for, please contact support@netx.net.
