[BUG] Drag and drop often refusing timeline placement
When dragging a video directly from Bridge into the timeline, most times it refuses to be placed in the time line (indicated with cursor). Other times is suddenly does work (same video type, same spot in time line, same track etc.) It's totally random.

I don't think that's a very good idea to drag files from one app to another or from Finder/Explorer to any NLE. It's much better to import this footage via the Media Browser. That way, if the clip is spanned or has important metadata, you can ensure that the clip will be properly imported and is prepared to edit into the Timeline.
Just because it works doesn't mean that the shortest way from A>B is the best way....But that's just me....(30 years of editing experience)....
