In fact, Adobe Premiere did announce to import MP4, while it only imports two kinds of MP4: the one is Sony and JVC introduced XDCam-EX movie (.mp4), the other one is Apple created MPEG-4 (.m4v). That is to say, Premiere only accept MP4 recorded from Sony camcorder, JVC camcorder or Apple's iPhone, iPad. It will end in fail if you try to ingest other MP4 file to Premiere Pro.
