Windows, Quicktime and premiere
on Apr 10, 2018 at 8:16:05 pm

I was forced to a PC from a Mac by our IT department...I'm trying to open an old premiere project on my PC... which of course the mov files won't work because of the quicktime drama.

My IT department discovered these codecs https://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_basic.htm
that allow me to play the .mov files now but they still won't import into premiere or let me re-link the assets to the old project.
I guess to me that doesn't make sense, is there an additional step I need to take?
Thank you in advance for any help!

Drop that k-lite stuff like a hot potato! Don't touch it! It's toxic to Adobe apps! Do it now!

I'm assuming you're working on the latest version of Premiere since prior to the most recent update all varieties of quicktime files work on the PC side.

Can you roll back to the previous version?

And Dave's right about those K-lite plugins. Stay away from them.

Thanks for this, Dave. I've been using PhotoJPEG codec to render Nuendo-friendly videos, but the new CC update seems to have removed that, so this may be a solution for me.

Is anyone using this for ProRes encoding on Windows? I've read about other 3rd-party ProRes solutions for encoding on Windows and came to the conclusion that none of them were a very solid workflow to rely on for retaining an all-ProRes workflow on Windows. I imagine it's the same here, but at least it's a cheap solution for ProRes deliverables to clients when needed, as long as the quality and compatibility hold up.

Aftercodecs works but is not licensed by Apple.

The only fully licensed windows pro-res encoding program that I know of is Assimilate Scratch but the cost is prohibitive for most.

The standalone Fusion 9 Studio can export Prores as well and it's pretty affordable.

So, what codecs do you have then?
I don't see it like you do. The only drama I see is that quicktime reference is no longer supported.
But the codecs that are now 'missing' are so obsolete that it's not an issue.
You could always transcode to a more modern codec if needed.

As I mentioned this is an old project - I'm trying to make a few small edits to. I'd rather not have to export all of the files and edit it again.

It's an issue if it's 10-year-old historical footage and there's about 20 hours of it.

Yet another reason I stay a version behind. I can transcode at my leisure.

I'm still a version behind on this machine. Maybe I'm not fully understanding what you mean.

Okay...the current Quicktime drama is that Adobe dropped support for some older codecs.

If you are a version behind, you are probably referring to the Quicktime drama where IT guys wont allow Quicktime to be installed on a PC at all......so you cannot play .mov files in Premiere.

Most places have installed Quicktime, but refrained from installing the player or browser plugin to deal with the security hole.

These .mov files must be a particular codec type that Premiere can't read natively since I don't have quicktime loaded on my Windows system and I have no trouble with .mov files.

Do you have VLC loaded on that PC? Can you open the files in VLC and do they play?

And here's an older thread that addresses a quicktime/PC issue that affected XDCAM and HDV quicktime files:
