"Q1:I am trying to import FLV files into Premiere Pro CC, but the program can’t directly ingest the file. Should I find a way to convert them into something that Adobe Premiere Pro is happy with?"

"Q2:I like do some editing with my source videos including MTS, MXF camera/camcorder recordings, or some other common files like FLV, AVI, etc, then upload to YouTube, Viemo to share. However, when I try importing FLV to Premiere Pro, the FLV videos can’t be played an edited smoothly in the program."
