OBS Software (also known as Open Broadcaster) is a free and open source streaming and recording program. Many people like to use it to record footable game, basketball match and TV Series. However, OBS generally saves recorded videos as a FLV file or MP4 file, which perhaps can't be imported into Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5, CS4) cause Premiere Pro doesn't support OBS FLV format video files.
To import and edit OBS video files to Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5, CS4), some want to convert OBS video to Premiere Pro supported video format like "Is anyone editing OBS footage with Adobe Premiere Pro? If so what are you converting the .flv file to? Also do you lose quality and keep your audio?" Is this the only way to import OBS video to Premiere Pro CC, CS6, CS5, CS4? Maybe it is no. Read on and find how to import OBS files to Premiere Pro with no converting.
Method 1: Edit OBS video in Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5, CS4) Without Conversion
Feedback unveiled that you can convert noting, but just save the OBS file as MP4 and not FLV for Premiere Pro editing. Under your settings, go to Broadcast Settings>File Path (hit browse), then go to the location you want your videos to save. "Save File Type", instead of using Flash (FLV), switch it to MP4, and save under a name (that will be the name all your recordings go under, so say you name it "MP4", they will be named MP4, MP4 1, and so on until you rename them).
In addition, on the Mac version, OBS has a Remuxer that reformats the .flv file type to mp4 for Premiere Pro editing. OBS Studio for Mac can remux FLVs to MP4 as a built-in feature. Just go to File > Remux recordings, select your FLV, and click Remux to convert them quickly to MP4.
The issue is that some report that when they remux FLV to MP4 and use the file in Premiere Pro, the audio is lost. So, try the method and good luck to you.
Method 2: Convert OBS video to Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5, CS4) for Editing
Users of OBS Studio might notice that for the time being, FLV output is the only recording option. So you might need a way to convert FLVs to MP4 format for Premiere Pro.
