‘I have clips from a Sony PMW-160 XDCAM HD422. It does not appear to be on the list of approved cameras. Will I not be able to see those clips? I imported them to Premiere Pro CS6 but all I see is green screen for the duration of each clip. Any good tips there?

    Have you tried idealshare?
    As far as I know, it can directly download mxf to premiere and it also can convert already downloaded YouTube videos to AVI.
