    Premiere Elements recognizes video file as audio file


      Hello all!


      Let me explain a bit of a background to this problem. I held a live stream on Twitch and saved the stream by using another site (that saved the files in FLV). I went into VLC to convert them, but the first time, I converted them as MP4 (which PE9 recognized as a video without an audio track). I then tried to convert the FLVs to ASF, but then I get the problem in PE9 where they're only considered audio when VLC and WMP play it as video.


      I've searched around and it seems like no one else has had a similar problem to me.


      Any help is appreciated.

          It is very likely that your conversion choices involve CODEC's, that PrE cannot handle.


          Can you convert to a DV-AVI Type II, in the conversion program, as a test?


          If not, then please run your final converted file through either G-Spot, or MediaInfo, to determine which CODEC was used for the problem video.


          Good luck,




          PS - some players, like VLC, contain many CODEC's for playback, that are not installed on the system, and many of those, even if installed, would not work with PrE.
