I tried VLC and it works thanks.
I also noticed that Premier cannot import my mpgs properly but can import those I found on the internet. I suppose Adobe is picky on the MPEG 2 â€œvariantâ€ they support. Maybe it has their own little twist on it. Because, in addition to my Nero created mpgs, files from my Toshiba DVD-RAM recorder donâ€™t work. Normally, I just rename the large file in the DVD-RAM to .mpg and it would play in WMP, but Adobe seemed to have messed that up.
Maybe Adobe just wants to reduce support for some MPEG2 specs for their own reasons. I would imagine that a company like Adobe wouldn’t “accidentally” miss these codecs.
