“Sony Vegas won’t Open MP4 files“- such kind of things might happen to almost every Sony Vegas user who wants to import MP4 to Vegas Pro for editing. In this article, we will offer solutions to you.
As you know, the native import of some flavors of MP4 wasn’t supported until Vegas 10. In addition, based on our testing, some MP4 files will import into Vegas Pro without QuickTime perfectly, whereas other MP4 files absolutely require QuickTime. And some MP4 recordings from camcorders like GoPro, Sony NEX-3, Sony Bloggie also can’t supported by Vegas Pro natively. The reason of the error mostly lays in the video format codec parameters. Not all MP4 files are supported by Vegas Pro, but some special .mp4, such as .mp4 (avc video codec, aac audio codec) videos.

Whereas, it’s not easy to install just proper codecs you need; all kinds of components would be installed blindly in usual, and many of which are not compatible with each other.
