I have an AVI file (see MediaInfo report copied below) I'm trying to open with media encoder because I need to be able to get it into Premiere Pro for editing (and audio editing in Audition eventually too). Codec is H264, audio is Mpeg-1. As I understand it, Media Encoder (and the other adobe products) isn't very agreeable with these types of codecs and/or wrappers. So two questions - how do I go about getting it into Media Encoder so I can convert the file to something more useful? Once it's actually in there, what should I convert the format to, so it works smoothly in both PP and Audition? Is this even possible without separating video from audio? I don't have much hope with an mpeg-1 audio encoding...

Running Windows 10, ME 2017 was gotten through Creative Cloud.

I had the same issue. I've never had a problem, for years, editing avi files. Tech support told me they replicated the issue on there end, and there may be a fix one day in an update.....
