Tips: We don't add uncommon video file formats in file filter. You can try to change the file extension to one of the recognizable formats, for instance, SWF Quicker doesn't recognize "m2t", which is the extension of MPEG2 (HDV HD mode-1) and it is sure to be the MPEG video streams. It¡¯s better to change it to mpg and then import into SWF Quicker.
There are certainly some formats that SWF Quicker can not support. It is better to save source file before you import these files, for that importing these files may lead some problems to SWF Quicker even make SWF Quicker exit. Hopefully it is helpful to many of you!
