Import MP4 Video into Adobe Premiere Pro CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6
Can't import your MP4 file to Adobe Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS3/CS6? It is officially stated that MP4 is supported by Adobe Premiere. The reason is that MP4 is a format container with different codecs. Your MP4 file codec isn't compatible with Adobe Premiere. To easily solve your problem, you can convert this MP4 video to other Premiere friendly movie format like MOV, MPEG-2, FLV and more (Note: it applies to all kinds of Adobe Premiere including Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro CS3/ CS4/ CS5/ CS6).
