It is not the renaming of the extension that is fixing this, it is the adding of an extension that is fixing this problem.

As standard, a video is called 'Video'. NOTE that there is no extension. - It might be an MPG, a MOV, anything!

Premiere may not recognise it unless it is called 'Video.mpg' or 'Video.mov'

This is because File extensions are hidden.

So all you need to do is SHOW the file extensions.

To show them refer to this guide, and then try importing again!

The .mp4 that I imported into premiere pro only came up as audio when I put the clip into my timeline. What worked for me, as for some of the other people here, was simply to change the file extension to .mov before I imported it into premiere pro. What an easy fix! Thanks! reply

Adobe Premiere did announce to import MP4, while it only imports two kinds of MP4: the one is Sony and JVC introduced XDCam-EX movie (.mp4), the other one is Apple created MPEG-4 (.m4v). That is to say, Premiere only import MP4 recorded from Sony camcorder, JVC camcorder or Apple’s iPhone, iPad. It will end in fail if you try to import other MP4 file to Premiere.

To successfully play MP4 in Adobe Premiere, a recommended solution is to convert this MP4 video to Adobe Premiere supported MP4 format or convert this MP4 video to other Premiere friendly movie format like DV, MPEG-2, FLV and more.

Find a step by step guide in Google by typing “How to successfully import all kinds of MP4 into Premiere?". reply
