Mov files, no sound

Recommended Posts

I have tried everything to get sound working on MOV files from my Canon Powershot. A couple of times it worked for a couple of minutes but then gone again. I have tried loading older versions as well as the latest. I have tried loading it with/without the Quicktime driver when installing. I used regedit to completely clear everything before installing different versions.

These are the audio specs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried QuickTimeAlternative? If that works we can clear out system and codec issues.

I am pretty surprised to see that it's using PCM instead of AAC encoding for audio, which is what Apple uses for everything including, by default, Quicktime. I wonder if using PCM instead is supported anywhere? You should probably ask somebody who knows more about this than I do, but that seems really odd to me. OTOH, maybe that's the whole problem?

I tried Zoom Player and VLC it plays fine. I just really prefer using MPCStar as my player. I've searched through the settings on the Camera and there is now way to change audio settings.

Have you checked MPCStar's ffdshow audio decoder configuration UI?

Make sure that on the "Codecs" page both LPCM and the other 2 flavors of ADPCM use the "libavcodec" setting.

After that try it again.

I got it. They were all disabled. I was about to pull my hair out on this one. I can't imagine why they were disabled, when I loaded MPCStar it said RM and QT codecs installed.

Now my next mission is to find something good and easy to convert these files to a format that will play on my PopcornHour and Mvix Ultio. I'm dissapointed that neither will play them.

Thank You So Much

horng, why don't you make a new topic, and start all over again. Pretend that nobody knows what you're talking about unless you mention it. Because, basically, we don't, and it's ridiculous to try to pull it out of you bit by little bit. Explain carefully, and in necessary detail, what your problem is.

Sorry about annoying...

Before that I'm using old version Mpc Star to play RMVB movie. One day when I on my pc and watching movie suddenly the Mpc Star didn't have sound while I playing movie. I had try using RealOne Player to play other format and it works fine with sound. So I uninstall the old version and try install the lastest version and then restart pc but the problem still persist.
