Restore MKV Format Support
Removing MKV Format support has a negative impact on the workflow of people that work with broadcasting software like OBS. Restore MKV support. Having native support for MKVs, even if they don't edit well without generating proxies, saves me a ton of time that I'd otherwise have to spend remuxing/transcoding files.

This is why I may have to cancel and switch to avid again. it seems like the industry forces this every 5 years.

Have just been reading about the benefits of FFV1/PCM codecs and .MKV containers for archiving, and how it has become a favourite for video archiving associations around the world. Then discovered that Adobe just removed support for it! For what reason? Will support be reinstated? If not within Premier Pro will support be added to Encoder?

adobe? are you joking? i just duplicate the ImporterMPEG.prm and change it to ImporterMKV.prm
the files can you see in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CC 2019\Plug-Ins\Common

Adobe you are actively alienating SO MANY of your users by continuously removing critical codecs from our workflow. I am so sick of this user hostility from Adobe! I can only hope your hubris will be your undoing.

Easy solution for those who wish to use MKV files with Premiere Pro:
(brew install ffmpeg)
$ ffmpeg -i video.mkv -map 0 -c:v copy -c:a pcm_s16le video.mkv.mov
You can play around with editing the "-codec:a pcm_s16le" and replacing it with "-codec:a copy", skipping the decoding of the audio stream.
I honestly don't understand why an 'update' would be removing a feature that worked fine and many people used... An update should be improving things, not limiting.

This is honestly crazy. I had many CURRENT projects that use mkv files and now i have to go and convert them because some num-nuts at adobe decided to take it out..!
ANY amount of warning would be nice.

I sure hope Adobe had compelling technical reasons for removing MKV support, and that your lawyers didn't have any say in the matter.
I have some projects using ".mkv" and now it's a headache having to search for a workaround :(
Please get the ".mkv" officially supported, it is critical to some of us that can't take the time to remuxing files!
PLEASE restore mkv-support!
Please restore MKV support to premiere pro. Importing as well as exporting.

Why on earth did you removes Mkv ??
I read by chance... no update for me...
This ruined so many project files I had been working on for over a year. Super depressing.
It's actually ridiculous that this was removed... For Screen Captures on Windows, OBS is VERY popular and in order to capture 4 channels of audio and ALSO prevent losing your screen captures from OBS crashes, MKV is the only option. Everything worked fine before. Now I have to remux screen captueres as an extra step because Premiere pro (A professional video editing program) cannot import a pretty popular video file AND I can't even use ADOBE MEDIA ENCODER to convert the mkv file EVEN THOUGH media encoder is literally meant to encode media to different formats................ Literally makes no sense they would remove support of this.
Honestly, who makes these decisions within the Premiere Pro team? Whoever is in charge needs to realize that customers drive their business and they should be listening to the feedback they receive. MKV was fine before, why just remove it and inconvenience many of your paying customers?

Please, mkv support is critical for me. I'm wasting too much time remuxing files :(
MKV wasn't harming anyone.
It was so useful for using clips from random sources in videos. Ridiculous to drop support for one of the most popular formats around.

I would appreciate the ability to import MKV's again.

Adobe, is this really beneficial for your company to remove MKV support? I mean do you wan't loyal customers to stop using your software? Because i am seriously considering it or do you think you are so big and powerful that you can just spit in the face of your customers?

Please restore MKV, I have a substantial amount of videos that are in MKV format, I was never expecting that to be removed. Converting every video before editing it is a huge pain.
I had to download handbrake to convert a video before running it in Premier and Adobe Media Encoder, that is really annoying.
