I wanted to import a local recording from OBS into Adobe Premiere Elements but I’m unable to do that. It doesn’t support .flv and when I use OBS’s feature to remux it to .mp4, Adobe Premiere can only see the audio track. Adobe Media Encoder only sees it as an audio file as well, even though media players play it properly. Any available way to open and edit OBS files in Premiere Elements correctly?
As someone suggested in related forums, Premiere Elements is not able to support OBS recordings perfectly. To solve the issue, we need to change the OBS .mp4/.flv clips to something Adobe Premiere Elements could natively handle, and MPGE-2 format is usually ideal. The process is surprisingly easy and can be done with the help of Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac.
It is an optimal video converter for OBS recordings. It supports creating high quality MPEG-2 video for your Adobe Premiere Elements, no matter what’s the format of your source video files. It can convert almost any video including FLV, AVI, MP4, VOB, MKV, MTS, MXF to MPG, WMV, XAVC S, etc so you can import your video to Premiere Elements, Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, iMovie for editing.
P.S. For those who are running on Windwos PC, you can turn to Video Converter for Windows. Download the software and learn how to convert and import OBS to Premiere Elements.
