I have a short and small mp4 video that I need to load into an email campaign. I keep getting the message that the image needs to be in another format such as:

jpeg or jpg

pdf

png

doc

ppt

xls

Not sure that even if I convert to one of these that it will run as a video.

You'll need to host your video on a separate, dedicated video-hosting site, such as YouTube or Vimeo, or in a cloud drive that can provide share URLs for files uploaded.
