Missing audio on some AVI files

vbimport

#1

Hello:

I have some AVI files in which the audio is missing on several parts of the video.

I tried VLC LAN, Windows Media Player and Winamp and all of them show the missing audio problem.

Reinstalling the audio drivers had no effect.

A friend of mine can watch and hear those videos with no problem.

Also when I stream them on my ipod touch I don’t get this problem but I can only hear on the right side of my headphones.

Anyone knows what may be happening?

Please finde the screenshot of this file using GSPot

Thanks

Anyone has some feedback?

Thanks

Installed DivX anx XVid codecs and still the same problem

I have some AVI files in which the audio is missing on [I]several parts[/I] of the video.

By “several parts” do you mean only certain parts?..Did you try playing using Gspot?The bottom section of Gspot hit the MS A/V button…
Are you sure these avi files are not corrupted?


#5

Yes it’s very weird. Several parts have no audio at all and other parts have volume problems (it goes down)

Tried playing the file with GSpot and the same problem.

Just triple checked the files and they are not corrupt. I played them on another PC just fine.

I also updated the motherboard audio driver and it made no difference.

Thanks

My guess is the files were badly created…But that’s just a guess!!!Are you having other sound issues, or just these particular AVI’s?

Actually scratch that, since you successfully played them on another PC…VLC should play them, but just for giggles try Media player classic…


#7

Well, I have only found the problem with those particular AVI’s. I don’t know if this problem has been there all the time though.

I have both Windows XP and Windows 7 Ultimate operating systems and just tried the files on the XP partition and still the same problem.

As I said the files play just fine in another PC using VLC LAN

Thanks

Well, there you go!..:slight_smile:

mmmmmmm looks like you did not read my post entirely bro.

THOSE FILES PLAY WELL WITH NO PROBLEMS ON OTHER PC’S. THOSE FILES PLAY WELL WHEN I STREAM THEM ON MY IPOD TOUCH.

Thanks

Good luck bro!..

Sorry bro I missed that part.

What do you mean by “scratch that” and “giggle”?

Thanks


#12

Tried Media Player Classic and still the same problem.

Any other ideas?

Thanks

#14

Thanks bro.

Hopefully someone else who read this thread may offer a solution.

Get Media Info & post a TEXT of the problem file from it.
Open the file.
Then from the File pulldown select Export
Select the Text tab.
In the " Choose your desired filename " box Browse to the location you want to put the .txt file . Then copy the text & post it.
This will give a lot more information on this file.


#16

Which software are you referring to?

Media Player Classic?

Thanks.

This is a link to MediaInfo software:

It is a freeware tool for getting information from A/V files.

Ok this is getting really weird.

I converted the AVI to MP4 using Xilisoft Video Converter and transferred it to my ipod touch and the sound is not gone in parts but the problem is that I can only hear the right audio channel.

[QUOTE=robertin75;2534896]Thanks bro.

THE solution were given several times, but you didnt get it as that…

Obvious is that the video files -precisely their audio parts- were created poorly, or at least poorly merged into 1 video/audio file.
