Your Premiere Pro even can't recognize your MKV files. These are the common problems encountered by many Adobe Premiere users. Although Premiere Pro supports a wide variety of video and audio file formats and codecs, MKV is not in the support file formats of Adobe Premiere. If you wish to use MKV files with Premiere Pro, you have to convert MKV to Adobe Premiere Pro friendly format first.
