Hi all - I've been importing GoPro video for the last couple years without an issue, but suddenly the .mp4s I'm trying to grab from my Hero 7 are only recognized as audio files after importing into Premiere? I've imported them both from the card itself, and from my hard drive through the add file method. I know there are some known bugs between GoPro and Premiere, however does anyone have a fix for this, or a good file converter suggestion?

A very good and free file converter is Handbrake.  

Could your go Pro be shooting H.265 footage?  Better answers might come if you cut and paste the file contents using the MediaInfo program.

Also much depends on which version of the program you're using on what operating system. Some file codecs are supported in newer versions and not in others.

 

Per Bill, please open your MP4 in the free download MediaInfo. In MediaInfo, set View to Text and copy the report and paste it to this forum.

 

And PLEASE also include the version of the program you're using on what operating system.

Yeah, H.265. Elements on Windows does not support the codec (yet). Mac does.

So it is off to HandBrake

Yes, H.264/MP4 seems to be the most universal and current standard with everything.

Make sure the framerate is the same as your source and set to constant framerate.
