I have imported videos from Youtube in the past for adobe premier elements 2 using Real Player and an FLV converter...
Now that I have a program up to date, I seem to not need the FLV converter but am using Real Player to download a video from youtube and then place it into my "new project."
I dragged the video to the audio/video1 bars and hit play after clicking on the screen to get rid of the "add title page." I hear audio but there is NO VIDEO feed until I hit stop, then it shows the frame of the clip it is currently on. It's like it's playing the video in the background somewhere behind the screen.
I'm up to date with quicktime but I am also getting the "Incompatible display driver" message before opening my project (possible issue?)
How do I view the video I have uploaded and maintain audio?
The RealMedia Player is probably the worst software for ripping video from YouTube. It saves its files in a proprietary format that Premiere Elements can be pretty iffy with.
I'd recommend instead you use one of the YouTube downloaders that are available with the FireFox web browser.
Here's the one I use.
Although YouTube usually makes a pretty bad source for videos of any quality, the MP4s I've downloaded with this plug-in have been pretty acceptable, once rendered.
Thanks, yeah I was using some pretty ancient software.
I downloaded Firefox and the reccommended addon. It did the same thing when I uploaded the vid, still no visual yet audio remains. So then I clicked HELP on the interface editing, then went to UPDATES and ITS WORKING!! WOO! I guess it was the display driver. Thank you again.
