I cannot load mp4 into premiere elements 8. if I convert them to avi they work fine, but mp4s say the file type is not supported or the required codec is not installed. is there a codec for it, and if so where can I find it and how do I install it?
EDIT: I just had my drive wiped and had to reinstall everything, could that be the problem, and do I need to install the codec?
There are many varieties of MP4s and most are not compatible with Premiere Elements, 12.
What kind of camcorder are they from and how did you get them onto your computer? Video from Flip camcorders and still cameras generally can not be loaded directly into Premiere Elements.
I downloaded them from youtube(with the easy youtube downloader firefox plug in). I have quicktime installed, do I need to like link it to premiere or something?
EDIT: I have not idea how or why, but it is working now.
