in the link above, it is quoted: * Requires an optional plug-in from the installation disc
have you by chance installed it?
hope that helps,
i don't think i have . do you have any idea how i could do that?
sorry this is the correct quote from the info page link from above:
**Requires QuickTime installation. QuickTime supports various video file formats. Visit the Apple website for more information and to download QuickTime.
hope that helps.

im sorry, but just to be sure, do you have the latest version downloaded? i believe its Quicktime 7.
Could be wrong, but don't believe CS5 handled mp4 files. CS6 does.
Try importing it as a layer inside an already open file:
Layer > Video Layers > New Video Layer From File
If that still doesn't work, try:
but it will be opened as a smart object

the animation window shows up in timeline animation. is there any way i can edit the video from that (and make it a gif)? sorry, i'm just beginning to figure all this out.
I am having the same problem. I have Photoshop CS5 extended and the latest version of Quicktime and Photoshop still won't allow me to import video frames to layers. i have seen a number of people who are able to do this. i would like to have this option because it allows me import part of a video instead of the whole video. Is it a codec problem or plug-in problem? Please help.
