Premiere 2020 14.0 Crashes When i Drag H.264 Videos from OBS into the timeline
My Premiere since version 13.1.5 crashes everytime i'm importing an OBS recorder video into the timeline. I have a 2080Ti and a Ryzer 1800x 32Gb Ram
Before this update never had this problem!
I can't edit anymore my gameplay footage in this version and made me go back to premiere 2018 which is really more stable but has some weird bugs aswell.
In the image u can see that is stuck like this for ever!
Here some info of the video file that can maybe help you track the problem
Complete name : E:\Video\OBS\2019-11-07 17-32-25.mp4
Format : MPEG-4
Format profile : Base Media
Codec ID : isom (isom/iso2/avc1/mp41)
File size : 16.7 GiB

and yes i have tryed with more than one footage, it happens by now only with OBS recordings. Other h264 seem to work fine.

I still get this same issue with the latest update update 2/4/2020.

Is there any solution to this? As soon as I updated to 2020 this started happening as well. I have to wait 5 minutes just to import files when it used to happen instantly.

SAME. New version. 14.0. OBS files barely import. Take forever or it crashes. Once they're in, I can edit, but then the timeline freezes up every 20 or 30 minutes. TERRIBLE. Nothing I can do about it. I can go back to older version, but now can't load up any of my files into the older versions so will have to recreate a ton of stuff. Not cool.

I have the same issue all version of premier above 13.1.4 can't import an OBS (mp4) video.
I have just clean all my PC and can't download an old version like the last 2018 version... Can I have some help on that ?

Hi Tom, i'm using version 14.0.0 (Build 572), And yeah is still crashing, well actually if i leave the file for like 20 minute straight it finally loads, but is so much time! Let me know how we can work togheter on this!
Thank you for the report. We have fixed issues of this nature with the release of Premiere Pro 2020, but it is unclear from your report which version you are using. The title mentions Premiere Pro 2020 while the actual report notes the version is 13.1.5. Can you please confirm if you have tried working with these files in Premiere Pro 2020? If you have and it is still crashing then I would like to perhaps work with you offline to better understand the issue and perhaps look at a sample file so we can further resolve any lingering issues.
