DS218+ transcode MPEG4 and WEBM

Can the DS218+ transcode MPEG4 and WEBM formats?

DS218+ indeed can transcode MPEG4 and other video formats. But there is no mention about WEBM video format transcoding. Usually, with this format, your web browser will play the file the best way for the destination device. Even though Synology have not mentioned this video format I presume it will transcode them.
