PE7 -How to import flv file ?

Mar 19, 2009 1:46 PM

I have read that Elements 7 can import flv files from youtube but the program says the file type is NOT supported. What am I missing - how do I import these files?

Thanks

    Where did you read that Elements 7 can import flv from youtube?? I never heard that one before, so I would be interested in the source of your information. As far as I know, you cannot import a flv file into Premiere Elements 7 as is, but I believe that you can upload a video in flv format to YouTube in the Share/Online section of the program.

    By any chance, was what you read related to Premiere Pro, not Premiere Elements 7? Maybe related to the following link?
    http://www.moyea.com/import-flv
    I am not certain if something like the product in the link would work in Premiere Elements 7. Maybe someone has tried it and will report back to let us know.

    Curiosity got the better of me, so I downloaded and installed a try out of the Moyea plugin.

    It DOES work in Premiere Elements 4 in that it allows you to import a .flv file. I could not get it to work in Premiere Elements 7.

    I downloaded and installed the plugin (try out). When I opened Premiere Elements 4 and used Get Media Dialog with "Files of Type" either All Files or All Supported Files, the Moyea dialog appeared when I clicked on Open.When I clicked on "Try" of the Moyea Dialog, the Moyea Dialog closed and the .flv file that I selected from a saved hard drive location was placed in the Premiere Elements 4 Media Section of the program.

    I could not get this to work with Premiere Elements 7. With "Files of Type" = All Supported Files, the .flv file did not appear. With "Files of Type" = All Files, the .flv file appeared in the Get Media Dialog, but the Open command resulted in an unsupported format message from Premiere Elements 7.

    I did not have time to play with the settings of the .flv file that I created for the test, so my verdict is still out on the quality of the .flv that was imported into Premiere Elements 4 with the assist from the plugin

    I am still interested in the source of information on Premiere Elements 7 and importing .flv files.

    You can import FLV files if you have the FLV Splitter and the required codecs, separate from what is installed with Premiere Elements. All of these are included in Klite Codec Pack. You also need to rename your FLV files so the extension ends in .avi

    You'll need to know what codecs make up the FLV file so you can enable those codecs in FFDShow (included with KLITE Codec Pack). This is where I got the Klite Codec Pack: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm. I downloaded the Full version. You need to know what you are doing, otherwise you will need to use a conversion utility instead. You can really screw things up on your machine installing these codec packs.

    Playback will not be good in Premiere Elements until you render previews.

    I have had good luck with "FLV to AVI." It's a little conversion program, that has handled all of my FLV needs.

    Steve,

    Thanks. I was just about to dig through my Download folders, but you saved me the time.

    There are many conversion utilities, some of them free, such as this one that has worked great for me:

     

    http://download.cnet.com/WM-Converter/3000-2194_4-10700602.html

     

    Just convert the flv file to a wmv or avi and import to PE7. No problem.

    You also might want to look at Moyea's Adobe Premiere Plug-in.

     

    I've been testing it in PrPro 2.0, and it works perfectly. I'm so happy with it, that I am going to pick up a second copy. Do not know if it works for PE7, but Moyea has other utilities around FLV, so there might well be something else.

     

    With the Plug-in, PrPro 2.0 just Imports the FLV's, and PrPro works well with them.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Hunt
