1. Premiere Elements does not input FLVs.
2. I don't know of any. Maybe someone else does.
3. K-Lite Codec Pack is grade A prime. One of the best free utilities on the web, and an excellent tool for keeping your codecs healthy.
Thanks Steve, for your instant reply.
1. I know. But why? Strikes me as very curious.
3. Thanks. Will not uninstall.
FLV to AVI is freeware converter:
To date, it has worked fine for me. Ann Bens, who contributes to this, and the Pro forum turned me onto it.

Adobe didn't invent Flash. It's a fairly recent acquisition. Maybe in due course....
Also, don't forget that Premiere Elements, for all its powerful features, is still a relatively low end product. It's designed primarily to edit video from camcorders -- not every video format in the world.
In fact, it's actually pretty impressive that a program at this price actually EXPORTS Flash!
I posted over on Muvipix.com some information about playing back FLV files in Windows Media Player and importing FLVs into Premiere Elements:
You do not need to convert flv to get it into Elements, there is this plugin that will let you import flv straight into Elements.
Elements 7 will support swf.
And yes stay away from codec packs, only install the codec you really need.
