Been working with PP CC since it came out and have had almost no problems. Now I have a head scratcher. I can't drag a video clip from the project panel to the sequence. The audio comes but the video won't. All I get is the close hand with a line through it when I hover over any of the video tracks. The clips play fine in the source monitor but still cant drag it from source to sequence either. Tried this with clips from several projects and cameras but no go. Started a new project, different name, folder and footage, still have the problem.

No you are not doing what Kevin wrote.
Source patcher is not set. Those are the two boxes on the far left: needs to be blue like in Kevins screenshot (the one with the red bounding box).
Thanks a million for this simple, but great tip. You just made my life easier ... Last three months waisted too much time by creating a new sequences from clips, cut+paste in the main sequence. UGH!
So glad you found this solution, Salahuddin! Have fun editing.
So beyond aggrivated about the MOST basic function that one would need a video editor to do which is getting a video track into a timeline. Its not working and support leaves it up to us to try and figure it out on a forum like this. I have spent HOURS looking for a solution. The simple fix everyone is talking about with the V1, V2 buttons does not do anything at all. Still cant drag anything. I have uninstalled premiere pro, updated to the newest verion etc nothing works Premiere pro is useless at this point.
If source patching is not the fix. Make a new thread with your issue, computer specs and screenshots of UI and media used in Mediainfo.
That helps, thanks!
Can someone help I cannot drag my video over to the sequence timeline
Screenshots can help us with that, Randy. Can you provide any?
Sorry but i need help, I have done everything you guys have said with the V1 and A1 selected.
but when i try to drag and drop a section of the source clip into the main time line, the little hand icon closes ( as if to grab
the clip) but then when i move it down to add it to the time line, but simple moves the slider bar on the sourse clip.
Thank you in advance
