I do not have QuickTime installed. what do you mean what is INSIDE the video? sorry to sound so dumb but have never had any problems before and part of this I do not know what you are talking about.
1 - Premiere Elements requires Quicktime

Let us make the distinction at the onset between the Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 Editor and the Elements Organizer 9. I think that then things will fall into
order for getting at the core of your issue.
1. Are you saying that you import your photos and videos into the Elements Organizer 9? You cannot import videos into Photoshop Elements Editor (any version), so I think that is what you mean. (Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 are standalone products. When they are on the same computer the share the same Elements Organizer 9 which comes with either of these products).
2. Given you have photos and videos in the Elements Organizer 9, what are you doing.....
a. do you want to import those items into the Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 without going through a Slideshow Editor route?
If so, you can select all at one time all the thumbnails you want, right click any where in the selection, select and click "Edit with Premiere Elements" in the pop up that appears.
The files are imported into the Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 Editor. This is possible with and without the photos in an album.
b. you can also access the album from the Premiere Elements Editor, using the Filter By: followed by selecting the name of your album.
c. you could create a slideshow in the Elements Organizer Slideshow Editor (Create/Slideshow) and use the output option "Edit with Premiere Elements".
Have you done any of the above?
In this instance, QuickTime and what is inside your video do not appear to be the prime issues.
Please review and consider and then we can decide what next.
Yes, I imported them into the Elements 9 organizer. then I put all of the photos and videos into an album. I then went to Premiere Elements and started a new project. I brought them over from the album. at this point I tried to put them into the timeline. the photos went to the timeline but not the videos. that is when I got the message that the type of file is not supported or the required codec is not installed. thank you so much for your help.

Hi, I just right clicked in Photoshop to edit in Premiere and it said the file video was too large. I decreased the size of all of my photos. ois
do I have to have quicktime installed for premiere elements to function?
Thanks for the replies.
Photos oversized for Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 project settings and those exceeding the total pixel limitation for a given photo are factors.
There is a total pixel count limit for stills imported into 9.0/9.0.1. It is not seen in later versions.
Please see my post 6 in the following for the details which apply to 9 as well as 8.
The pixel dimensions of your photos and how many of them there are play major roles in the success or failure of a project. No matter how
great the resolution, in the end they will be reduced to the specifications of the export.
Premiere Elements requires QuickTime latest version on your computer along with Premiere Elements. And, both programs require you to
be running those programs as Administrator for all intents and purposes. To verify the presence of QuickTime
a. check Control Panel area for installed programs
b. in 9, go to Share/Computer/QuickTime and assure that QuickTime there has its Presets.
What is the format (including video compression and audio compresion and file extension) of the video that is not transferring from your Elements Organizer 9 Album to Premiere Elements with the Edit in Premiere Elements
command of the selection?
