File Type Associations--no mp4

Jun 21, 2013 1:05 AM

From Alias(.pix) to XML (.xml), I can find NO mp4 in the File Type Association list, found in the Edit-Preferences dialogue.

What?

No mp4?!?!

    What?

     

    No mp4?!?!

     

    Bridge uses the common name .m4a instead of .mp4, by default set to iTunes in Bridge FT associations

     

    However you can play a file with .mp4 without problems in Bridge

    I don't think mp4 and mp4a are the same thing.

     

     

    Try this:

    I did not go through all the info but it seems the 'a' stands for only audio.

     

    Bridge can handle a lot of file type but by far not everything. It should handle all Adobe Suite possible filetypes but even this is still not the case. However trying to get all kinds of file types handled will be a big task

    I have VIDEO that is mp4.

     

     

    I'm sorry but I don't understand this anymore. We seem to act in the same thread but are not talking to each other?

    Not sure what you are trying to do.  You can not just change an extension to make a different one.  You need to run it through a converter.

     

    You can set VLC to be default program to open video file, as I have.  Works well.  But believe it still plays thumb in Quicktime.

    I am also experiencing this issue. I'd like to assign .mp4 files to open in Photoshop but there's no entry for it in the Preference List.

    DId you ever find a resolution to this isuue?
