But then an error appears: "Format Not Supported", or "COULD NOT OPEN MEDIA FILE! YOU MAY NEED TO INSTALL SOME CODECS blah blah..." or maybe it just plays audio, with no video rolling at all. What's happening?
Has Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 quit working? Okay, reinstall and try again, but you still get the same error. Camera crashed? Why? It's new camera and it renders video only in .MP4 format, also it plays perfect on the camera. What should I do? Then you may search on the internet and expect some pros she d some light on it.
