Can't import MKV files into Premiere Elements? A Quick Fix

Published on August 4 2017

Ever tried to transfer some .mmkv files into Premiere Elements for making some modifications, but failed ended up with no sound, codec incompatibility, ect issues. Don't worry! This article aims to offer you a smooth workflow of editing MKV video files in Premiere Elements 11/12/13.
As is well acknowledged to us, Adobe has claimed its Premiere Elements possessing the capacity of native support for QuickTime.MKV format. However, in reality, some annoying issues remain as many users complain that they once ran across the problem of failing to import some MKV files into Premiere Elements. And there are frequently asked questions quoted below:
"Premiere Elements 11 is giving me a "file format not supported" message when I try to import MKV into a project!"
"My friend has given me a lot of footage to edit for him, its HD and all MKV. After streaming these .MKV files into my Premiere Elements 12, no any reactions received. What's the matter? Need any Plug-ins or anything? "
"I'm working in Premiere Elements 13. Every time I import a MKV file it plays back jumpy/jerky. Any ideas?"
After careful researches, I come to figure out the basic reason behind such a series of issues, might ascribes to the MKV itself, since came from different sources, such as from some video editing software, or from different cameras, may have different codec inside. If your MKV files are not accepted by Adobe Premiere Elements, it's probably because of the video or audio codec incompatibility.
