Music/video not playing (Not an audio problem)

Q: Music/video not playing (Not an audio problem)

Ok, I restarted my computer from a fresh boot this morning and when I opened up iTunes to play a song, I clicked the play button. It then proceeds to keep the song on 0:00, no audio no nothing. No attempt to even start the song.

Thinking it was an iTunes error I tried to play something in WMP. It did the same thing....clicked play and the song stays on 0:00. Now I tried to play a video in WMP to see if that worked, and it played extremely slowly and laggy with no audio. VLC media player is doing the same thing.

Some background on my system, it doesn't lag. I have an i7920 and the hard drive the music and audio is stored on is extremely fast. I also tried moving the music to a different HD on my system and it does the same thing. Any help is appreciated. I am going to try a system restore.

Preferred Solution: Music/video not playing (Not an audio problem)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Music/video not playing (Not an audio problem)

A system restore fixed it. Looks like a windows update was installed. Thats the only thing that could have done it. I haven't installed anything for over a week. If you know what might have done it specifically, let me know.

Hi everyone
I bought a Dell XPS13 9343 two years ago. I've never had any significant problems. The only thing that bugged me was that sometimes videos behaved a bit difficult - they would move in slow-mo and without sound if i clicked fast forward or backward (way) too often.
Now I have serious problems with audio and video. It started a few days ago. Whenever I pause a video and do something else (even just for a few seconds), i can't restart the video i.e. press play again. The video then does the slow-mo and no-sound thing. I can only solve this by reloading the video, which is really annoying. 
The other problem I have is the sound. Whenever a sound comes on for the first time, it's incredibly loud, even though it's not supposed to be. This happens with or without headphones. An example is when I start a video - bam, really loud. If I click the volume I already set, it goes down to that volume. 
I've already downloaded new drivers and the newest Windows 10 update is installed as well.

Has anybody experienced the same problems? Any solutions? I'm kind of desperate, because I can't work like this.
Thank you so much.

Hello,

I recently got a 64-bit Windows 8 Desktop. One day while working, I heard some really strange noises that seemed to be coming from an advertisement online even though I had no web browsers open. I have only heard this sound about 4 times in the last ~10 days.

I noticed the audio source is called "Name Not Available" on my audio mixer.

I attempted to use Malwarebytes to find the virus. Unfortunately, MB did not find any malware on my hard drive.

I would love some help trying to remove this.

By the talk I assume you mean the peoples voices. If that is so you may have the sound control panel configured incorrectly for stereo instead of 5.1.

i just upgraded my PC to Vista Ultimate SP1 and whenver i play music or some video files, the sound "skips". i don't know how to describe it, but it like pauses for half a sec with a skipping sound then plays again, like if the cpu usage is at 100%, but that's not what's causing it. Nothing like this happened in XP, just started. it happens ever so often. i've search the internet for for about an hour yesterday with no avail. I have a intergrated SoundMax digital audio card. I've tried reinstalling the audio drivers, check DMA settings on both my HD's, tried various media players etc. my sound card doesn't have those "Enhancements" that i read about. People were able to solve their problem by disabling them. I also don't have a wireless network card. I tried to see if maybe the activity on the HD was causing the issue, but couldn't make a connection. I tried moving program windows around rapidly but that didn't cause the skipping to occur. i'm at a loss here. any help much appreciated.

A friends PC keeps crashing after a few hours of usage (watching movies, listening to music). I've been attempting to troubleshoot it but I'm not to sure about how to find the cause of the problem.

Ok, let me get to the point, lately whenever I play a music file on my system or watch an online video, all I get is sluggish and choppy sound. I am running Vista Home Premium SP1. My specs are as follow :

AMD Athlon 64X2 TK-53 1.7Ghz
4GB DDR2 RAM
120GB Serial ATA Hard Drive

I've got all of the latest drivers
I ran various virus scans, yet no avail. I am running with all the latest OS updates. Now I am at my wits ends and baffled as to why suddenly it does this.

I also check my hard drive for errors using chkdsk yet it reports nothing bad.
However now that I think of it, I did update my BIOS last week I am running a PHOENIX AMD BIOS with version 3.13 Date : 08/22/2008.

Perhaps this caused some odd behavior ? But as far as I'm aware of, nothing else is wrong with my system.

My only problem is choppy audio while the hard disk drive is active. For example I could be copying a file while listening to music and all I hear is choppy audio. Unfortunately this is a pain in arse while playing games from the hard drive. All I get is choppy/sluggish audio.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and I am getting rather tired at the moment, don't mind my ****ty grammatical errors in this post. All I want to do is get my point across and hopefully get this problem fixed.
Thanks

This is not a "must have", but it is a lot of fun. You can play a video as desktop background which is especially nice if it is a music video. For that you need VLC. If you do not have it yet, you can install it from e.g. here ( Download VLC Media Player 1.1.2 - FileHippo.com ). And here are the few easy steps:

1. Open VLC and go to Tools > Preferences
2. Click on the icon called Video on the left (3d icon from the top)
3. Change Output (which is set to Default) to say Directx Video Output
4. Click on the Save button (important)
5. Now select the video you like to play -> Media > Open File
6. Right click on the VLC window where the video plays and go to Video > Directx Wallpaper
7. Minimize the VLC window and enjoy your new desktop

If you want to get out of it, right click on the VLC icon in the taskbar and Close VLC. In case you later want to use VLC for "normal" operation, you have to reset the Output to Default and Save it.

Background:

I had to reinstall XP a month ago (long off topic story) - it's all good and fine.

I can't remember how to fix the following problem like I did long ago after the last reinstall. Perhaps you can help myself and others whenever this comes up.

I have a program I'm happy with called Audio Grabber (AG). Typically it grabs/rips audio direct from the CD/DVD drive and places the data into .wav files for further processing (sometimes work related in my case). I have other programs that also do this such as CDex. These programs work perfectly fine and I'm keeping them.

Here's the core problem:

Sometimes, like right now, instead of ripping the CD data into .wav files (at a fast speed) these programs merely play the CD audio through my speakers instead (real time speed) and do NOT make any .wav files what so ever. XP can sometimes, somehow, bypass the programs normal functionality and instead just plays the CDs instead of allowing them to perform their normal ripping action to .wav files for me.

As I said before, the fix was a simple XP tweak but not where most people expected it to be - and I've forgotten again because it's been so long since this problem has arrived once again.

The matter is a settings trigger somewhere (something to do with the recognition of the drive itself if memory serves) or something unexpected that fixes this problem even though it may return on occasion for some people (such as myself). It seems to be an ... Read more

Hello, I've been having problems for quite some time now and upon google search after search there doesn't seem to be an answer. When the audio is on, for videos, games, music, etc. it sometimes "skips" like an old cd player. Its pretty obnoxious, and I'm wondering why exactly this is so. I'm assuming I have an old driver or something, because I upgraded my pc from win 7 to win 8 pro. Thanks for the help and let me know if anyone needs clarification!

A:Jittery sound when playing music/video games (Win 8 Pro)

Audio is always on a shared Interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. Depending on the shared device, it can "interrupt" the audio and cause skipping.

If you have the HP supplied IDT audio driver for Win 7, it is also compatible for Win 8. However, check the Device Manager and see what devices are listed in the Sound section. You should ONLY have the correct IDT sound driver and possibly HDMI audio (if your system has this) and nothing else. If "HD Audio Codec" (the generic Windows installed sound driver) is also listed, or any other sound, except the IDT and possibly HDMI, uninstall those as they can cause conflicts and other audio problems. Restart the PC if you uninstalled anything.

If you only have the correct entries in the sound, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDG and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (do not uninstall the drivers). Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This will fix any potential corruptions between Windows and the sound and sometimes will put the sound on a different shared IRQ and fix or mimimize any interruptions.

Hello there!
First I must say I'm not really sure if this is an actual hardware issue. I had my (Win 10) computer for approx. 1.5 year and I didn't have this problem until recently. When I play music I get this static noise glitches, in case of video the glitches of audio track and video track are in sync. It can range from barely noticeable glitch to around 1-2 second glitches (the ones after which you'd expect to get bluescreen, I never do).
While I could get use to this, the glitches make my computer almost unusable for VR gaming (Vive). As you can imagine it could be motion sickness inducing experience if the video jitters and skips frames every other second not following actual movements of your body. The issue seems to be more severe for VR than regular gaming. It also takes ages to load VR games for some reason (compared to regular games).

The reason why I think this might be hardware issue, more specifically issue with electricity wiring in my apartment is that the fridge situated in the same room as computer stopped working approx. month after I started to have the issue with my PC.

I'd appreciate any suggestions!

I've installed the latest driver 4 my gfx card (integrated) , I've scanned with kaspersky, panda, avg, ad-aware and windows defender and I've cleaned up my registry and disk with Ccleaner.

I've got 223 MB RAM, which seems to get eaten up as fast as heck during start-up and afterwards, so I downloaded XP FreeRAM Pro or w/e. It got 4 stars on download.com and IMO it works well. Computer temps are within safe levels (40 -55c max) and it makes no distinct sounds when frozen. When it freezes, the screen stays still and sound turns off. Basic functions like turning on the CAPS lock light are working. I've got my PC tuned up for fast performance, no desktop BG, no window effects (it looks like windows 98) only 4 desktop icons (including the mystring thing). I only got ZoneAlarm firewall, AVG and FreeRam on my taskbar. Still slow, sometimes. I dunno what else to do.

I'm running on an AMD Duron, with VIA motherboard (with S3 Unichrome integrated gfx)
and VIA AC97 audio controller (which i haven't found an update for).

Any suggestions? Thx in advance.

Oh, and it freezes on low-end games. Pharaoh only needs 32 MB RAM and I can't run it w/o freezing it's maddening.

Windows will crash to BSOD after about 10-15 minutes of playing a game, listening to music, or watching video. This started happening about a month ago. Up until then everything was fine. I though I found some people with the same problem when I search on Google, but updating their BIOS fixed their problem, it didn't fix mine.

I have updated all of the drivers I could think of and flashed my BIOS to the newest version on the ECS website (I have an ECS KA3 MVP motherboard). This didn't fix the problem. I also made sure I downloaded the Vista driver from Nvidia for my graphics card. I have also run a Memtest and had not errors, and I ran a video card stability test and everything was fine (didn’t even crash). I checked all of the temperatures on the restart and they are all in normal operating range. Here is what the BSOD says everytime.

WinXP SP3, Google Chrome 29.0.1547.66 m, AMD Sempron LE-1200 Sparta, 2.11Ghz, 960MB RAM
I tried to uninstall, reinstall Adobe flash player, chrome but to no avail. I think it's an overheating issue but I don't know how to read the figures from CPUID Hardware Monitor & Core Temp (Screenshot http://i44.tinypic.com/291nq0i.jpg ). I've disabled "Hardware Acceleration" on Chrome and Flash Player. Fans are running but I couldn't find any software to read the temperature of Hard drive or Processor as the ones available doesn't support the above processor. I'd appreciate if anyone could help me with this as the restart happens every 5-20mins (sometimes even during a reboot). I couldn't find any google chrome crash report although it's enabled. I also tried to disable (and uninstall) manually installed adobe player & use inbuilt adobe player in Chrome to isolate the issue but it doesn't work at all. I have installed HijackThis but I don't know how to read or use the log files. Please Help!!!

When I open a media file in a player, it only plays the audio, but if I open the same file while this is playing in another player it will play both. It does not matter which player I open first it will only play audio. But the second player will play the audio and video. I have tried Windows Media player, Real Player, Winamp, DivX, DivD and they all act the same. I am running Win XP. If anyone has any help it would be appreciated. I have updated each player and downloaded lastest codecs. Have no idea how to solve this. Thanks for any help you can give. Randy

Lately something strange is happening on my computer. I have Windows 7 ultimate 64 bits. I like to play music while I work on the computer. Thinking it may be the music software I use, I decided to try Windows Media Player. Same problem happens. After around 20 minutes playing music, the screen suddenly turns black in middle of me typing. Green light on monitor stays on and music continues playing. I turn monitor off and then on again. All looks normal and I can continue typing and listening to the music for a while. Then suddenly monitor gets black again. I turn it off/on and all goes back to normal, but as long as I continue playing music the problem begins to repeat more and more often with smaller intervals. When I pause the music, all works normal, no black screen. It's annoying. What could it be? I can talk on Skype for hours without any problem, so I don1t think it may be the sound board. All critical updates are up to date, only not downloaded all the optional updates. The optional updates I not installed are: KB2952664, KB3102429, KB3107998, KB3133977, KB3137061, KB3138378, KB3140245, KB3147071, KB3161102, KB3170735, KB3172605, KB3179573, KB3181988, KB3184143. Some of this updates are to upgrade to windows10, others for Lenovo computer (not mine), others for strange currencies, etc.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello,

I have a windows 7 home premium 64 bit computer. I am trying to play an avi file. It only plays the video and not the audio. Any solutions?

A:AVI file playing video and not audio

You might need to install a codec pack. If you have not installed any others give sharks a try.

Sharks007 Codec Pack.

When installed run the shortcut in admin mode. That will reset the codecs & you should be good to go.

Hi,

I encountered this odd problem. I recently switched to windows 10 from 7. When I play video from the monitor (via dvi cable), it plays fine, but as soon as the big screen TV (connected via hdmi) is turned on, the sound goes off. This happens with potplayer as well as vlc player, so it's probably not application related. However, I go to windows sound setting and I can hear the test sounds (while big screen TV is on) - just not from the video. I never encountered this before in windows 7.

If you need any other information to help diagnose, please advise.

Thank you!

Hi-
I've noticed that my Realtek audio driver is preventing my computer from playing online video, ie msn, etc. Yet, when I disable the Realtek driver I'm able to play the video. But, then I'm not able to hear any sound. Any suggestions on how to fix this conflict? My audio driver is the most recent driver update from the dell website. So, I know that can't be the problem.

I have recently been going to major news sites such as CBS and NBC, but also some other video streaming sites. When I press play, I get a giant 3,2,1.... and then no actual video image plays but only the audio. I'm not sure how or why this started. And so, that is why I am asking for assistance so I can actually go back to watching videos online.

I have a custom built PC with an external soundcard via USB (Creative Soundblaster 24). A friend installed a new harddrive (Seagate OEM 500GB Barracuda 7200.12 Internal Hard Disk Drive)
(7200RPM, SATA, 16MB Cache) into the PC and copied all my files from an old PC to this PC. All audio/video worked fine on this PC until everything was copied over including version of microsoft xp.

Sometimes the videos/songs play normal and then other times it will go really fast or jump a second at a time.

I have a list of codecs if needed.

I really need someone to help me with this problem. Any extra information needed i will try to get it

Hello, I've been noticing something since I got my P50 that is very irritiating. I am running Windows 10 on a M.2 SSD and using the stock HDD for storage. I have a couple of games stored on the HDD along with a library of some music. Whenever I play a game, I notice 1 second freezing of both video and audio before the game resumes back. The games I'm playing are very light pre 2011 games that I used to run on my old laptop. To further cement the point, I have a dac/amp connected to the P50 via a USB port. Music will be playing and suddenly things stop for a second or so before it resumes. If I am to guess what is happening, I might say the HDD is trying to go to sleep in those moments I notice the 1 second freezing. If that is the case, what can I do to stop that ?

This laptop was used before I got it. The problem that I am having is that while I play an audio file the mouse will start to lag and the audio will make this weird buzzing sound and sometimes will sound like its in slow motion or speed up. If I try to watch a video it will either never load or lag very badly. If I don't close it out when that happens (Both audio and video) it will blue screen. The mouse also sometimes just lags when I'm doing nothing but moving it across the screen. I've ran a few virus scans that found nothing.

I don't know if this is needed. But this showed up so I copied it.

System: AMD Athlon CPU, Asus A7N266-VM motherboard, 256MB DDR RAM, 4GB HDD.

I'm unable to play any audio file using WMP9, Crystal Player & Ulead video editing software.

When I try to open an mpeg file with Crystal, I get a message 'can't init directsound for playing audio'.

When I use WMP9 or Ulead, the video file plays without any sound. WMP9 does not play any audio file - MP3, Wav either from the HDD or the CDRom player. I'm able to play CDs thru my LG CDRom player.

WMP9 gave me the following report :
0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Error ID = 0xC00D11BA, Condition ID = 0x00000000

How I can fix this problem?

Thanks
 

A:No audio when playing video files

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Go into your device manager, and check to see if there are any yellow exclamation or question marks next to your audio devices.

You could also try reinstalling the drivers for your sound device.

If you`ve got onboard sound then you will need to go to your mobo manufacturers website, and download the latest drivers from there.

If on the other hand, you`ve got a seperate soundcard, then go to the soundcard manufacturers website, and download the drivers from there.
