A MOV file is a movie file saved in the QuickTime File Format (QTFF), which is a multimedia container file format. It contains one or more tracks, each track holds a particular type of data i.e. Video, Audio, text, etc. Adobe Premiere Pro CC is a good software to edit video clips from camcorder or camera on your Windows and Mac.

Codec missing or unavailable Premiere Pro CC MOV

Hi, I received 8.5GB 4K MOV files from one of my friend (Recorded by Panasonic Lumix S1H). The problem with those MOV videos is every time when I import them to Premiere Pro CC I get the error message "Codec missing or unavailable". I also tried to import those MOV footage into Media Encoder and change their file types, but I couldn't import either. I searched online for the MOV file Codec missing or unavailable solution, but I haven't been able to find any.

My Premiere Pro CC can import Nikon Z9 MOV but only have sound no video screen is black.

Why is this file not showing the video? What can I do to get the video footage to show up?

Premiere Pro CC prefers QuickTime format, H. 264 and MPEG4 codecs, while MOV is a container format that can hold various audio and video codecs. You often encounter Premiere Pro CC that doesn't recognize or play MOV videos. Even if it supports video editing, you have to spend a long time rendering the video. There are relevant solutions in many forums, such as upgrading your software to the latest version, installing plug-ins, etc Installing plug-ins can sometimes help you if you can find the corresponding plug-ins. However, this is also a cumbersome process. If you are not very proficient in computer technology, I suggest you give up this solution. As for upgrading software, it also depends on the situation. If your computer configuration is not enough, you will not be able to upgrade the software to the latest version. Maybe you still can't import Nikon Z9, Z CAM E2-S6, Lumix S1H, Fujifilm X-T4, etc., MOV videos into Premiere Pro CC after upgrading.
