Load Error MP4

Hi I downloaded a graphic intro for my project.  It was initially in .mkv format so i used VLC media player to convert it to MP4.  Whenever i try to import it into my project i get a load error.  Was interested in possible fixes for my problem if i would be better trying a different format or whatever resolution works basically.

  • MKV and MP4 are not video formats. They are just generic content container file formats. They can contain a number of different video formats.

    When you converted to "MP4" as you say, what did you convert to. Specifics. A text report from the free MediaInfo utility would give this information. (copy, paste the text report to a post here). Without specifics we cannot reply.

  • my apologies i'm very green at this but here is what mediaArea.net gave me

    That does not look like a full text report.

    A couple of items I notice.

    1) "File size : 159 Bytes". There appears to be no video in the file. This is a very tiny file.  It looks like to video or audio given the tiny file size.

    2)  "FileExtension_Invalid : braw mov qt". It this file supposed to be a Blackmagic Raw file?

    List of supported formats.

     

    Example of a full text report. In this case a GoPro file.
