MP4, MOV, AVCHD files import without audio in Premiere Pro CC (2015.3)

Sometimes, MP4 files (mostly from a GoPro), MOV files, and AVCHD (MTS) files that are imported in Premiere Pro CC 2015.3 import without audio. The files are imported as video-only. You could also get an error stating "This File has no Audio and Video Stream" while relinking files with these formats.

This issue affects Premiere Pro CC 2015.3 (versions 10.3 and 10.4).
