Fix uploading / dragging video to timeline bug in Premiere
Bug: Many of us can't upload or drag video to Premiere. The audio comes in fine, but the video doesn't show up on the timeline. There are workarounds for this, but it seems to be a bug.

As Anne explained...the only workaround for me was to create a new Sequence then copy and paste into the first sequence. Too many extra clicks to add one or multiple clips.

I'm getting this on the latest update to Premiere Pro. I've got some .mov files that import fine, but then I can't drag the video onto the timeline.
I've used Anne's work around (create sequence from clip then copy and paste into the timeline I want it in) - so thankyou Anne!

Hi Jason, thank you so much for responding! I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro 2021 15.0.0 Build 41, but it also happened often in previous versions. I've noticed it happens with .MOV files for me, but I haven't tested other formats.
I made a video a while back about this issue - you can take a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghtXBp96Lxc
So the best case scenario (fix) would be to be able to consistently drag video from Project panel onto timeline, and have both the video and audio show up in the timeline (many times, just the audio appears).

Hi, Anne. Sorry about the hassle. I've never seen this though, so it would be helpful to get a little more info. What version are you running? Do you see this with any video file, or only certain formats/other traits? If you could share media that reliably repros this, or possibly a screen recording, that would be helpful. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something to share but would prefer to do so privately. Thanks!
