you can import an mp4.
if you have trouble with a particular mp4, it may need to be re-encoded so it's h.264
You don't do anything in AME 2015; it doesn't support FLV. To make an FLV, you need to download an earlier version of AME that still supports it. Adobe Media Encoder CC 7.2 was apparently the last version that did.
I too am unable to import MP4's or Webm encoded videos that worked in Edge. Import options lack mp4 or any other video format other than flv. Seems like they've released a half baked replacement and having to install an older version of MVE to gain flv functionality feels like a work around rather than a planned evolution.
I've been using Edge to create video backgrounds and embedding these into Muse - Bit worried now!! Adobe can you provide a road map for Animate highlighting which Edge rich functionality can we expect to gain or lose?
Thanks kglad, but... great for Flash based development but have to create HTML5 compliant content that's not reliant on flash. Would like my video backgrounds and animations to work on IOS devices. Was using Edge to create dynamic video based content with animated elements but no longer supported and as I work in an educational institution, a secure development and support path is critical.
But in reply to your solution.. The import video option is only available if you create a Flash / Action script based canvas or swf, but will not allow for h.264 embed ("Currently..." - please advise Adobe) within a HTML5 or WebGL canvas (Import video option is not available) so unable to access and create video based content in the same way Edge Animate was able to include and use MP4 / WebM video content.
I've been exploring Animate CC and hope that the ability to include and work with video content would be really useful but due to the increasing lack of uptake, IOS support etc... for swf content, would limit my use.
It could be that I'm treating Animate CC as a replacement to Edge an have misunderstood that this is a totally different beast....

animate pro cc != edge animate.
as development of animate pro cc evolves perhaps more features of edge animate will be incorporated.

Hi Miranda, I was confused by the same thing and think I know exactly what you are talking about. I was able to get my .mp4 file imported. Here are the steps I took:
1. Start with an HTML5 Canvas project
2. Add a video to the stage from the components menu
3. Select the video object
4. go to the properties window and click "show parameters"
5. The first value is "source". Click on the crayon to the right of the source property and select your .mp4 file.
6. Click "OK" and your video will be imported into the object.
