Mark, Any PNG Format of Quicktime will do it. not sure how i would submit a bug report pasrt what you've read? isnt thsi in and of it self a bug report? i think i laid out the whole situation pretty clearly? did you not understand something?
Same problem here. I was working on a project with some .mov with a png codec files. Now the media went offline and everytime I try to reconnect or to import a simmilar file it gives me a "There is No video or Audio Stream" error. I'm working on Adobe CC 2015 64 bit on Windows 10.
Any progress on finding a solution?
If you want to open MOV with a PNG Type Format, You need to transcode it in QuickTime Player, Open your PNG Type Format MOV file in QuickTime and export it(in export menu.. you have to set compression type to None) Thats it.
and yeah i am also using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014.
