Preferred Solution: removing embedded sound from an AVI video clip before adding a new sound track in Movie Maker

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.)

As the title says, I've just started using movie maker but it wont show the images from my avi clips, only plays the sound. They imported ok, but its not just my own clips that wont play; I tried to preview the video effects and despite the progress bar scrolling along I couldn't see anything in the player. Will be grateful for any help at all!

At a lab I've spent numerous hours on this animation that I'm entering into a national competition. In PowerPoint I had my friend narrate it, and uploaded to drop-box. It was all working perfectly, but now at home when I downloaded it most all of the sound clips are recognized as movies, and won't play. Two of the sound clips still are recognized as sound clips and will play, but the other 12 don't. How do I fix this? The due date is tomorrow.

A:Powerpoint is recognizing sound clip as movie, won't play the sound

Not knowing what format they were uploaded to and if they all were uploaded in the same format, its hard to say. Are you using the same powerpoint version?

Can you look at them individually within powerpoint and see what they are listed as (not the powerpoint show).

Although this is an audio problem, its more a Powerpoint problem and maybe should be posted in the MS Office section.

Hi everyone

Hope I've posted this in the right forum! I know zilch about DVD writing and recording.. I have made a DVD of all my old 8mm (and super-8) movies that I took when I did Europe in '67and '69. (As Jean Brodie would have said, I was in my prime...) What I'd like to do is make a voice recording, a monolog, in step with speed of the movie, just to describe what is on the screen.

I have the DVD version on the HDD of my LG RH 278 DVD recorder. I have copied the file to a DVD rewritable disk, but I can always scrub it and do it again to incorporate a sound- track.

Is there a simple way of adding a sound track either after burning the master from the HDD or simulaneously? One store said I must use Pinnacle, but the price was off the scale, and anyway, I'm not likely to even use it twice, so it's not worth it.

Thanks

Larry (More Problems)
 

A:Solved: Adding a sound track to a DVD

Simple is in the eye of the subjectively biased eh? One way you could do it without going the "Pinnacle" way is to use something like Audacity or something that can record your narration as you watch any particular video so you get a .wav or mp3 file of your voice that will be timed to correctly narrate the video.

Before you narrate though you would want to have the video extracted into a format that the program DVDFlick can recognize. That might be as easy as copying the files to your hard drive from the DVD and renaming them with the .mpg extension if those files have the .vob extension now.

Then as I said, you narrate those files to get a correlated mp3 or wav file. Then once you have added the video segment to DVDFlick and gone through all the basic settings to get them as you like there is a Audio Tracks tab in the Title (each video segment is a title) properties where you can add the corresponding audio file as a audio track to each video segment. Then when you create the new DVD, your narration will be included.

A:Windows Movie Maker : No sound from mp3.

Do you get the visual graphic fequency bands of sound to show up in the Audio/music timeline when you drag the MP3 there? If so it might be simply that your audio levels have been set all the way down in the program. If you just get a straight line (no sound detected) then there is a problem with WMM not being able to pick up on the audio of the MP3. Assuming the MP3 has a common standard bitrate and such and WMM fails with all MP3s added, you've got bug that is not so easily diagnosed.

If everything else works OK, I would suspect a problem with the Movie Maker. Try reinstalling that and see if it fixes it.

Hi all

I am currently copying some old VHS analogue tapes to my PC for editing. I have copied the film OK along with the sound using "One touch grabber" This edits OK in Movie maker and plays fine but the resultant save to the PC (.wmv) format when played back in Media player has very quiet, fuzzy sound quite unlike the raw film as edited and played in movie maker which was quite clear and crisp.

I decided therefore to pick up the sound track from the VHS tape separately using the the mike input socket in the PC and the windows sound recorder. The intention being to put this recorded file against the film in Movie maker and editing it along with the muted video.

The recorded sound in .wma format was fine when played alone and the file was imported and edited with no problems with the muted video files. Playback of this via movie maker was OK.

The final result when the combination was published to the pc as a .wmv file played through media player was just as dismal.

Does anybody know the reason for this or suggest a way of getting better output sound?

Thanks in advance

Hello all,

I tried searching all over the internet for a solution to this problem without luck. I was happily using Windows Movie Maker 2012 on Windows 8 for several days, when all of a sudden the sound stopped working. Whenever I try to play a clip from a video camera, a former project, or a finished movie file on my computer, the video plays but with absolutely no sound. I have tried putting in mp3 songs, and those do not play with sound either. I can see and single out the audio tracks to clips, but I cannot hear anything. Sound on the computer is working fine, and the clips play in Windows Media Player and other media players. I have tried uninstalling Windows Movie Maker and reinstalling it. It worked initially, but I waited a few days and tried again only to have the same problem occur. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(P.S., I did try Windows Movie Maker 6, but it does not accept certain movie file formats that my video camera uses, so I went back to WMM 2012.)

As an alternative to your issue, try using VLC player, it's free and at least you'll be able to watch/listen to your videos.

VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

For you problem, I'm wondering if something has been left over from the uninstall, which could be causing your problem. Try using Revo Uninstaller and uninstall it with that then download and install movie maker and see what happens.

And before you say anything, IT'S NOT THE FILE. The file is an .avi and it works fine. The problem isn't that it doesn't play sound at all, but that it will play sound for a while but after I move the cursor to another time on the video a few times it will
just stop working and I'm forced to guess what sound is playing based on what's happening in the video, which obviously, isn't working. My speakers are fine because my music will play so don't say that either. This is something on WLMM's part as my videos
will work fine in other editing programs. This has been going on for weeks and it needs to be fixed.

A:Losing Sound from Sony MPEG to Windows Movie Maker 6.0

At first guess I would think WMM doesn't support the audio codec that your camera uses. Check to see if your camera uses a "wierd" codec and campare it to the codecs that WMM supports. You may have to use a program like Virtual Dub to convert the audio if this is the case. Another option is to see if the camera can save the audio in a differnt format or maybe upgrade to a more advanced program.

Hi all:

I will appreciate it, if someone could teach me, ......

1.

If you have any DVD of a movie or say, .......
100 MB of any wmv/avi kind of video file
and you want to make a small avi vdo clip
of 15-20 sec, how to do that?

Do I need particular software? WiNDVD can do it, how? Can WIN XP do it without third party software? How?

Here is just for an example.





2.

If you have 100 MB file, how to split it into two/ three files of equal size?
Can WINXP do it? How? I would try to avoid any third party softwares if WIN can do it.

Thx.

Hello Im currently Unable To Use Xillisoft Video Converter / MS Movie Maker (2012) or CUDA Video Converter

I have a video that I captured using FRAPS its avi and I want to convert it to youtube format MP4 OR WMV for easy upload.

When I try to to convert the video with movie maker I get no visual only audio with a black screen. With Xillisoft and Cuda Video Converter they both end up with a failed to convert message.

I scanned my computer with malwarebytes pro and no issues. I also scanned with this program called rouguekiller I found off the internet that scans for rootkits and 0 access viruses, It found a few but I Don't know if they were actually viruses or not but I went ahead a removed them and restarted computer but still have issues.

Ive also tried installed the software titles in different compatibility modes, Im using windows 8 64bit and tried windows 7 comp mode and windows xp compatibility mode and still having issues.

The Video I made with Fraps works fine in windows media player but not in latest movie maker. I was using almost identical configuration with radeon hd gpu and didn't have any issues, it worked once with my NVidia gpu which is a gtx 650ti.

I have latest graphics drivers and turned off anti virus / firewall when I try to convert video.

I don't know what else to do Any Help Appreciated, Only thing I havnt tried is uninstalling and reinstalling Fraps but I don't know why I would be having issues that would cause this.

Are you only experiencing this problem with only one FRAPS file or does it happen with any FRAPS video you create?

Would you mind sharing a short video file with us to see if we can re-create the problem on our systems and see if it is the video or the system causing problems?

Hello,
I upgraded my Win XP to Win 7 like 1 month ago.
Downloaded all drivers (from their sites) updated them... then i open WMP 11 and start playing some music. After listening to that i heard some weird sound lag, I believe its called crackling. I searched on internet found some solutions, but none worked and none was for mine sound card.
This wasn't happening on Win XP.
Oh and if i have older version of driver it works way batter (only hear crackling when my cpu goes up to 1000MB (100%) ), but then my Microphone goes really quiet like I disabled microphone boost.

Hope you understand my problem.

hi techspot,
i am trying to solve another problem over at bleeping computer having to do with streaming video on this computer. i read about you--you were highly recommended for someone with a driver-related problem, which this may be.

in trying to figure out my streaming video problem i tried out the cd player and the dvd player today for the first time. the cd player works fine except sound is weak even at top settings.

dvd player has pretty much the same sound as the cd player with a cd in it, that is, weakish sound.
When I put in a movie there is beautiful video but zero sound. I tried a few different movies to make sure of the problerm.

other info: default media player is wmp
a former user seems to have used powerdvd 6

i can play a movie using either wmp or powerdvd. Neither have any sound.

i am happy to add new drivers, etc, but will need help.
Not sure if related to streaming video problem (shuts down browsers, explorer and firefox, for you-tube and hulu, as soon as video loads. some short commercials ok video and sound.)

appreciate ideas.
thanks!

Sounds like you are missing some sound codecs, at the very least. Luckily Techspot can provide them for you...

Hope this solves your problem.

I have been searching and reading and watching youtube videos about this and I have tried all the solutions that have been suggested. Nothing has worked! I loaded codecs, uninstalled and reinstalled, etc. Please, if you have any suggestions, I'd love to try them. I am a novice at video editing and I tried other free, highly recommended video editing software and the learning curve is just too high! If you know of a free program that is very easy and close to the movie maker interface, please suggest it!
Thanks!
