Import Kaltura Capture Desktop Recorder files in Adobe Premiere CC

Last week I started working with the desktop/screen capture feature in Kaltura. Screen capturing is great with this tool but you’ll fall short when you want to go beyond simple edits/cuts. I like to do all my video editing in Adobe Premiere and you’ll notice when you import a Kaltura MP4 clip into Premiere, Adobe throws this error: “The importer reported a generic error.”

The solution is quite simple. You’ll have to change the extension of all your Kaltura .mp4 clips to .mts

With Total Commander you can batch rename a whole directory or a custom selection of files at once.

Best of luck with your stunning Premiere Productions!

Here’s a video based on Kaltura clips:
