The Flip uses MPEG4 encoding. Likely it is a flavor of the DivX codec, which can be used in an .avi wrapper.
Premiere doesn't play nice with DivX.
You might get some info on using a Flip, if you stop by the Premiere Elements forum. There are a couple of entries in their FAQ's (read the FAQ's for all versions, as they have never been combined). The steps for dealing with those files will carry over pretty much to PrP, as well. Link: http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.3bb574e6/
Also, there are many discussions on Flip cameras in the main forum articles (search for "Flip"), and also on www.muvipix.com, in their "Community" forums. You will need to register (free), and not need to "subscribe," unless you want to download some of their Assets.
Flip cameras present some challenges. I stongly suggest doing some reading, before you attempt a Project from one.
