AVI and MP4 files with no video in Adobe Premiere

Page 1 of 31 3 last »

So I’ve been trying to put together a few videos recently and I’m having a lot of problems importing files into Adobe Premiere. It seems that most AVI and MP4 files will only import as sound files even though the program specifically says it’s a video file. The audio is the only information available for editing. Is this a codec problem? From what I’ve read so far, it seems to be. If so, what codec would I need to correct it? Thank in advance! reply



I have the same problem, my .MP4 videos only show up as an audio file in adobe premiere cs3. reply

Did either of you guys get a fix for this? I’d be very interested if you did, I’ve had to revert to using 2.0 :(

Thanks

Yes, please, please share your solution. I have the same problem. How can expensive software like Premier not get this to work. SOOOOO frustrating. reply

same problem here...i read on other forums that it might be because of codecs or codecs conflict, try to update reply

Feedback


both AVI and MP4 files can be edited.

you can just try some other convert software like DVD Creator, it can convert various video formats reply

This problem has been happening for years. Easy for people to start telling you to download nmore programmes that will supposedly work. How about Adobe, nero etc stop selling new software until they actually pull their fingers out of their arses and fix existing issues. reply

Dear friends, I had the same problem, but I used converting program, and after the file was converted it was able to be open in Premiere not only as a sound, but with the video as well. So this is my advice, use video converter and read first wich type of files Premiere works with! I hope it will be helpful for you! p. reply

Please Help Me reply

Try installing Quicktime. It has built-in codecs that usually help with video editing. reply

Feedback


Looks like everyone has the same problem.... me too. This sucks since I’m trying the free version before I buy. If this software can’t import the default movie type from my camera, what use is it? reply

Feedback


Installing Quicktime worked. Restarted, opened Premiere Elements 9 and the AVIs opened and played. Thanks for the tip. reply

Feedback


I had the same issue with the videos from my new video camera. I tried updating Quicktime, changing file extensions, etc, and none of that worked. I had to download a converter. reply

Feedback


Kinda hope Adobe either goes under or gets a wake-up call regarding releasing expensive software w/o some standard convenient features.

My Premiere doesn’t even recognize the avi file as footage. It won’t let me interpret it or anything. reply

I am having this same problem. Luckily I haven’t bought Premier yet, I want to give it a test run. I used it before on a friend’s computer and I really liked it. This is a total bummer. I’m downloading quicktime right now, but if that doesn’t work and I need to convert my files (which are mov from a lumix camera)---
what worked for you? What converter and into what type of file? reply
