Vegas Stock Video Not Importing into Vegas?!

I have to say that I'm pretty frustrated with the "Vegas Stock" options. The interface is clunky, slow, and freezes often. Is there a way to browse content in a standalone program or on the web? The search-only option is slow and buggy, and now, most frustratingly, a video I downloaded "" won't even OPEN in Vegas. What?!

Windows media player plays it fine.

Also, does that mean that "Vegas Stock" is just Videoblocks sublicensed?

Separately-- do we have access to stock still images as well, or just video?

Try the mp4 files over the mov unless you need transparency. Otherwise you may need legacy Quicktime enabled.

No stills yet... but that is a good suggestion for down the line. You could always pull stills from the videos, I guess...

Thanks Roger! Unfortunately I do need it for a transparency. Also, yes frosty, I can pull stills from the videos but only the 4K ones are high enough res and those are more limited. Thanks for this suggestion though! I wish there was both a still and video option

How do I enable legacy quick time in order to make things work?

It's in preferences/ deprecated features. You then also need to download the Quicktime plugin- search this forum for the recommended version number.
