Does Davinci Resolve Support WebM?

Is it possible to edit WebM in Davinci Resolve? How to import WebM to Davinci Resolve?

Actually, the WebM format is not a supported format for DaVinci Resolve to import or export. It is a video format compressed with VP8, VP9, and AV1 video codecs.

DaVinci Resolve accepts videos encoded in VP9 and AV1 (only the latest 18.5 version supports AV1). So if your WebM videos are encoded in VP9 or AV1, you can change the WebM container to the one that DaVinci Resolve supports, like MP4, MOV, etc. But if your videos are encoded in VP8, you have to convert WebM to Davinci Resolve-supported formats and codecs.

How to Fix WebM Davinci Resolve Importing Issue?

As stated previously, to fix the WebM and DaVinci Resolve incompatibility issue, you can change the WebM video container or convert WebM to a DaVinci Resolve-supported format and codec. Therefore, the following are the two ways for you!

Method 1. Rename File Extension

If you ensure that your WebM videos are encoded in VP9 or AV1 (for the latest version of DaVinci Resolve), then we can simply change the file extension from .webm to other formats DaVinci Resolve supports to get the issue solved.

1. Just right-click on your .webm file and select "Rename".

2. Change the file extension to .mp4, .mov, etc.

3. Click "Yes" when a warning pops up.

Then you can put the renamed file into DaVinci Resolve to see if the video can be imported now.

Tips. Sometimes, changing the file extension does not work, and other issues like "import only video but no audio" may occur since the audio codecs in the video file are not supported by DaVinci Resolve. Moreover, if you are not sure about which codec your video uses, this method may not work. So whenever you encounter the WebM import issue with DaVinci Resolve, it is more recommended to transcode WebM for importing and editing videos without error.

Method 2. Convert WebM to DaVinci Resolve Supported Formats/Codecs

Besides renaming the file extension, there's a 100% workable way for you to import WebM to DaVinci Resolve without error—transcoding WebM to other formats with WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro.
