How to import a mp4 file on Mathematica

I need to add a mp4 video on one of my slides. I looked at Import and tried the following command


to get "import::format : "Cannot import data as " Animation "". It does not matter if I change the option to List. When I remove the option altogether the following error comes out

Import::infer : "Cannot infer format of file " Honda_self - balancing_U3 - X_electric _unicycle _ 1280 x720.mp4 "." Does it mean that mp4 is not a format that can be used within Mathematica? Do I need to covert the video to avi?

What am I missing?

Many thanks
