Hi, I have a few OBS video files I want to edit with PP and I tried importing them andthere's no error message or anything they just wont load in. A quick 1 second freeze happens as if the file is being imported and nothing shows up. I recorded in .mkv didn't work. I converted .mkv to .mp4 through OBS, that didn't work.

So you went to your OBS settings panel, Output/Recording tab, and set to export in mp4, right?

Before or after recording?  I didn't do that I went to remux recordings and changed it to mp4 there.

 

If I do what you just said that should export them into a new folder as mp4 and the files would be different than my current mp4 files?

Download/install the free utility app MediaInfo and put the icon for it on the desktop.

 

Then drag/drop one of these files onto that app's icon. It will open, and from the View options select Tree view.

 

Do a screen-grab of the top and video section, drag/drop that onto your reply box text area so we can see the contents and settings for that file. Something like below.

Thanks Neil, I won't be able to get back to the computer I have it on until the morning. I'll be sure to get it done and hopefully I'll be able to get another reply from you tomorrow! Cheers!

Premiere does not support mkv (anymore).

For the mp4 change the frame rate mode to constant.

Change it to constant within OBS? Does that mean whatever videos I have now are useless as I can't import them?

Unfortunately after messing around with this and looking up guides it still isn't working for me. When I set a destination folder and try to save it as .mp4 Handbrake is not converting to .mp4 but rather .m4v2020-07-18 (8).png
