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.

Hey! Can you guys bring back support to MKV files? I use OBS to record videos and they only come out MKV. You guys are great, but this would make the product even better.

Why was this removed. I now need to convert 2TB of mkv and also all my projects files that were in limbo as I some how had a 2019 version of premier supporting mkv.
Pablo Karlsson commented
Also it was present in previous version idiotic to remove it.
The audio present in my MKV clips is Flac 98000kbps, 16-bit, stereo.
Handbrake is the only way to deal with MKV. Re-encoding is the best I've seen so far.
Being able to select different devices to help with encoding is very cool and helps speed things up.
Magix Vegas Pro, Crashes all the time trying to load the clip for playback.
thanks for the link suggestion, so easy. MP4 added
I'm just gonna give up with using MKV. Playback does work, No Audio. I have an old version of Premiere Pro.
I'll try other software, for the best encoding i can find. Magix Vegas Pro, does have a "MKV Experimental" Tick box option. i might start with that.
On the Plus side. I've learnt lots of new things dealing with instance.
Angelo I would also be interested in your 3D Audio .MP4 file !
Angelo, couldn't connect on the dropbox because of 2 Factor Authentification. However you can just "share a link" with dropbox and anyone with the link will be able to download it !
I've created a Dropbox account, i'll change the details, once you have the sample.
Antoine, i've made a quick 7 second clip from my phone. its about 50MB. Hi-res Audio, 4k, 60fps, MKV. How do upload the clip? I can't attach it.
I've done a bit of study. Most containers cant handle the various audio technologies, apart from MKV and encoding to other formats seems to cause audio issues. Which ill try myself.
After analyzing my clip, I'm interested in your opinion Antoine.
Eric, i've tried what you suggested. No Joy. Playback always worked. But proxies and exporting in MKV seems impossible.
angelo could you send us a sample ?
Just spent the last few hours+ trying to understand why I couldn't create proxies with 4k 60fps footage from my phone.
Reason the phone changes the format when using Hi-res Audio to MKV! When using 3D-audio the format is mp4.
Come on Abode, can't you see your loosing out, by not supporting a format used by millions devices!
I don't want to spend the time re-encoding and I'm not sure exactly how that would affect the Audio.
Nice one Eric, I'll give that a go.

Seriously Adobe, stop being such freaking a**holes.

Am doing a massive found footage project, with 800 feature films in MKV. Working on the older version and then switching to Resolve permanently, removing features is a complete joke Adobe.
Simone Momo commented
Please restore MKV support. PLEASE
Amanda Finstad commented
Seriously....... Over Adobe at this point. My company will be dropping it next month

I record a bunch of gameplay videos with OBS, which, by default, exports to MKV. The feature was added in 2018, but was removed a year later. I don't want to have to remux my recordings to MP4 every time I record a gameplay video.
Many others are begging for it too. MKV is a container format, and OBS by default exports in H264. Removing support in 2019 was unnecessary and detrimental.
Christopher Bonner commented
Add .mkv video file support. Its a waste of time to convert .mkv to another format before importing it into premiere pro.
Chelsea Babcock commented
Bro wtf. Support MKV, you cowards.
Connor Danielson commented
Just bought a monthly subscription only a couple hours ago and of course, the main file format I enjoy working with and prefer overall is no longer supported! Way to go, Adobe. Once this month is up, I'll probably be canceling my subscription to look elsewhere for other editing software that's actually capable of doing what I need it to do.
