If we download YouTube videos in .mp4 format from a site like keepvid.com:
After Effects is not going to play nicely with the format and sooner or later you'll run into this problem:
"ram preview needs 2 or more frames to playback"
Any suggestions for what I can do with the video files before importing them? I realise I could convert them all to an uncompressed format using adobe media encoder, but this would take a long time and a lot of space.
Is there any simple way around this I might be overlooking?
