Preferred Solution: no video only sound on all files

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.)

If I attach a device with video files and play the files on the computer, there is no sound.
Sound for other music and video files on the computer does work.
I thought initially, maybe Skypes sound settings were taking over, and needed to be changed, and I modified some of skypes audio settings but it had no effect.
I did not find the sound controls in Windows 7, that I am used to adjusting in Windows XP, so I really do not know how to fix this.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I have an avi file that was saved from an interview room camera/recorder at the police station. The file is saved as an avi to a flash drive. It is then taken to a stand alone PC and copied from a USB flash drive to a DVD. The file is then played in WMP 9.0 and it plays fine.

But when I try to play it on any other computer I get video but no sound. I've tried different versions of WMP. I've tried VLC. I've downloaded different codec packs. I've tried other players such as Winamp and DVR. I will often get the picture but still no sound.

I tried converting the avi files to wmv. Video but no sound still.

However, it does play with sound on the stand alone PC they use to burn the discs.

Any ideas what to try?

As of late, some of my video files have been playing without sound. The same thing happens with almost all videos online that stream through Windows Media Player. The only similarity I can find in the muted files on my computer are that they're all mono. The only thing that I can think of that could have messed up my audio settings is that I installed the Combined Community Codec Pack, but even after restoring all the default settings to my system there has been no change.

Has this ever happened to anyone else?

A:Solved: No sound from certain video files

Hi guys,

I actually have no idea how long this problem's been around on my computer as I don't often watch video clips on it, but the other day I was trying to view a common wmv file and it would only play out the sound but not the image/graphic.

I tried the latest version of WMV then moved onto VLC, Media Player Classic, and GOM Player but the same problem persisted. I then found that the same problem also happens to other common video formats - avi, mpg etc.

The videos I've been trying to view work perfectly with image and sound on other PCs with same players.

I can view Youtube videos.

Help please.

A:Video files no graphic, sound only

Sounds like a codec problem. You can try installing K-Lite Mega Codec pack , or FFDShow.

I have a samsung yp-s5 mp3/mp4 player. As you may all know, samsung has its proprietary video format(otherwise known as svi). Now my problem goes like this: I downloaded files from youtube and had them converted to avi format, then I transferred those files via the samsung media studio(since its the only program that can convert movie files to svi). Then, when I watched the movie, it has this clicking sound(like click-click click click click) and my audio is behind the video, meaning the video is ahead while the audio lags behind. What could be the problem here? I played the files in my computer(the avi format) and there were no problems nor clicks at all.

Then I tried something else, I split a segment of my fave movie that I came from my dvd disc and converted it to avi. I checked it on my computer, it didnt have any clicking sound. Then when I transferred it to my mp4 player, there were no clicking sounds at all. Hmm, what could be the problem?

I'm having an issue with some video files. When I try to play them, the sound works normal but as soon as I move the silde bar to skip to a certain part in the video, the sound stops and doesn't come back. Could there be an audio codec that I need to download or something?

EDIT: The problem seems to just be affecting WMV files. Not mpegs or mpgs.

I have been running ATI All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro for about 2 months with no problems, but I recently installed a Santa Cruz sound card, and various ATI functions have stopped working acoustically. First, the packaged ATI File Player (for avi, dvx, mpeg) outputs video but no audio. And the TV-In-Demand function (records TV-out to the harddrive) also lacks sound play. But the regular TV viewer and the DVD Player play sound just fine, and playing the sound works when playing the same avi, mpg, files on WinDVD some of the time. Can anyone help? I'm not a real tech expert, so any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried re-installing your Catalyst drivers and software to see if they can pick up your new sound card? Is the old sound card out of Device Manager? Sounds like some type of conflict.

Recently, the sound on any downloaded video will not play. The video works fine but no sound. Videos that were downloaded several weeks ago play with sound. I've tried playing the new mp4 files with iTunes and Real Player with the same results in both players. Sound works on videos played online. I had installed EZ Video Recorder awhile back and it would not play the sound after recording a video. I thought it may be the EZ Vid software and perhaps it corrupted something or there is a conflict somewhere. I uninstalled the EZ Vid pgm and ran some cleanup but that didn't clear it. I'm at a loss. Suggestions would be appreciated. I realized how much I don't know in this department as I've never had this problem. Thank you ahead of time.

Hi all,

I have a problem with my USB DAC in my media center PC, and I would be delighted to receive your help

When I play music everything works perfectly. However, when I play some video files in WMC the audio cracks continously, it becomes unacceptable and I have to quickly stop the video for not damaging the speakers. It also happens when resizing the video screen or switching to full screen mode.

The DAC is a MUSILAND MD10, which uses the generic USB audio DAC driver from Microsoft.

In order to check if the problems were linked to this USB MUSILAND DAC setup, I have also installed another USB soundcard EMU 0404, which uses its own driver. I can confirm no cracks occur when using the EMU.
So, this is nothing related to windows process running in parallel or system load.

Could it be the windows 7 USB audio DAC driver? I tried to update if from the dev manager but it has the latest. Any thoughts?

Thanks a lot!!!

As mentioned in the title. Only 1 or 2 MOV files I've played in the past have actually worked fine. A large majority of files simply play the sound, and show no video.

starts with blank screen, sound plays....

- if I change the window size, it shows a frozen shot of whatever frame it was playing at the time;

- if I go to another window/app outside of the player, then go back to QT, a shot of the other app/window shows through where the movie should be playing.

Additionally, for some reason after a while leaving player open, it freezes (no buttons work, cannot close it down)

I Re-Downloaded QT just now from the site, still same problem though. It is V 6.5.2 of the Player. I'm on XP Pro, stuck for ideas on how to get the MOV files showing video.

Alright, I have spend about 3 years trying to resolve this problem and I have done so much research that I felt it would be a waste for me not to post something about it. 
After I owned two Dell laptops, the XPS13 and Alienware 17. Both having the same problems. I tried everything, I read through all of the forums and I tried everytthing these forums have suggested and at multiple occasions I ruined my laptop and had to format it. 
I also always had the full warrenty with Dell customer service and have replaced my xps13 TWICE and my Alienware once. This is of course after replacing the motherboard and the hard drive and spending endless hours over the phone with them while they update all my drivers and ensure my software is running correctly. They ran 100's of tests on my computer to see why this is happening and no one could ever solve this problem. 
However, after all this research with no solution in sight I thought of the problem logically. My alienware was running 16 gb of ram and 1 TB of HDD regular hard drive. I figured if I have so much ram to run anything I want, maybe it is having the regular hard drive that is not keeping up with the ram. Sure enough, when I went and bought the best SSD out there Samsung Pro 950 256 GB and installed it and used it as my operating system while the HDD ran as my storage. For the first time in 3 years and 4 computers... my pc was running with no jitterz or lagging or any issues!

I can run either RealPlayer or Windows Media Player on my Windows XP Home system.

Issue 1
I tried to play a commercially produced DVD movie and I got an error message saying "missing codecs" when I tried to boot up the commercially produced movie right out of the box. The error message did not tell me which codec was missing.

Issue 2
I then inserted a DVD burnt by a friend from a video tape and I could see the video but I got no sound when trying to use RealPlayer. DVD plays normally on another computer and plays normally on a standard DVD player.

I am posting two issues in this original post because I suspect they are both related to the missing codec issue.

Can someone give me suggestions on how and where to start the troubleshooting process?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

Been having major issues playing GTA IV.

First, the sound kept getting cut during gaming. When I exited the game, there was no sound in Windows either. I had to reboot to get sound but after a couple of minutes, the sound cut off again and I wasn't even gaming then. Video playback became really laggy (YouTube played videos as if in slow motion) and there was no sound.

I had to reboot the PC several times. Unisntalled sound card (through Device Manager) and then reinstalled it as well as the latest drivers. Still had same issue when I tried playing GTA IV.

Today, I got consecutive BSODs while playing GTA IV. I've had several issues with GTA IV like missing textures, no sound, freezing (at loading screens), CTD (crash to desktop) etc. Tried reinstalling the game several times from scratch and even tried different hard drive but none of them work(ed).

I'm playing GTA IV heavily modded (Gionight ENB mod with several custom cars/weapons etc.) but my computer is a beast and it should be able to handle it easily.

My specs:

CPU: i7 990X
Mainboard: Asus P6T7 WS Supercomputer
Memory: 12GB Corsair Domintar 1600MHz
Hard Drive: 32GB SLC SSD x2 (RAID-0)
Video: EVGA GTX-580 3GB Tri-SLI
Sound: Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium HD
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 1200W
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

The first BSOD was STOP code 0x124 and that was with stock clocks for the GPU. The second BSOD was STOP code 0x1000007e and that was with GPUs OC'd to 850MHz.

Hi J.r, welcome to TSF.

To clarify, you want to extract the audio from a video; remix it and place it back over the video?

In my mind, I would use software to record the audio.
Using video software, I would mute the original audio on the video, and place my remix over the top. Do you think this is something you could achieve?

I'm unclear on what you mean by:


but I want to eq,

Is this a typo?

Hello green,

You get sound from your microphone? I don't think I am understanding. Sound should come from your sound card. You plug the speakers into the back of the computer and into the sound card (green jack). The mic receives sound. My mic is USB so it doesn't use any jack other than the USB port, but if you use the sound card, it goes into the purple jack

i use vista 64-bit and the media player that came with it plus a codec package from windows. for the past 2 years i have been very happy with it with no problems what so ever. however now, without downloading any patches, my media player has decided it won't play certain videos.

i have some music videos and some films that i have downloaded and they still play just fine. but the ones i have ripped with DVD Fab (i own them btw) have since stopped working properly. they play audio but there is no video. when i play in full screen, instead of getting black like before, i get the same visualisations as if i was viewing an mp3 (the vortex/battery thing)

i downloaded the K-lite codec package thinking it may be that. nothing happened.
i have also noticed that when i view a movie/video, even though i can close the media player [X], it still playing. i can hear it. when i re-open it, its still playing as if i just minimised it.
so i don't know what to do.
(could my G15 keyboard be keeping the file running in the background somehow)

i am not in favour of a 'roll back' (system restore) because i don't know when it started. (not to mention the loss in data)
and for those who don't know. the vista media player is apart of the program. it can't be uninstalled nor re-installed without re-installing all of vista again.
not a pleasant thought.

thanks for any help you can give me

Read other 8 answers

Hi all,

I've recently found that when watching video online, the sound and video become de-synced after a few minutes, although they start in sync with each other. This happens every time on Netflix, and about half of the time on iPlayer. It only rarely affects YouTube, and is the same on all browsers I have installed (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE). Restarting the browser occasionally helps. I've had no issues playing files that I have saved on my computer, or DVDs.

Things I have tried so far:
- Clearing history, cookies, etc.
- Disabling extensions
- Full scans with CCleaner, Spybot, and AVG
- Reinstalling the browsers, flash, and silverlight
- Reinstalled sound and video drivers

Any ideas?

Thank you!

We only notice this when playing full screen video, but the PC will 'stutter', video will freeze and sound will jam for about 20 seconds. Our box is connected to an Optoma Projector via VGA and we may start a film with one monitor configured but i've noticed 'phantom monitors' (a second screen that doesn't exist) appearing after one of these freezes.

The resolution also often changes between 1280x720 and 1152x - this seems to go hand in hand with the freeze, presumably a reaction to this 'phantom monitor' appearing.

My box is an MSI Media Live, which comes with an NVidia GForce 6150 LE - i've tried the latest standard nvidia drivers and also used 'browse' to find the Microsoft Nvidia Driver Variant which doesn't fix the problem.

Has anyone got any idea how I might fix this or what the cause may be???



A:PC 'stutters' - video and sound when playing video

An update on this: I added a registry key to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers from another post changing the time required before windows resets my video card.

Now when a crash happens i don't get resolution change/display reset (presumably because the timeout is now much higher) but the movie playing will freeze a little then catch up in a series of really fast frames.

So this is partially better, but the freeze is still happening and the sound still stutters horribly - I thought this was a video driver problem, but obviously not -- what else could be causing this???

I'm hoping I can get some help here please...I recently had a virus problem but since that has been fixed through the Virus Thread here at TSF. Whilst in the process of cleaning my computer, nearing the end of the process, I noticed that any video or sound that I played whether it was through video file that has been downloaded or even if it was a DVD or watching a video through YouTube or just listening to an MP3 through any program, the sound would be choppy and just go at like a slow motion pace every few seconds. The computer is now clean but I am hesitant to do a system restore to an earlier date because of the viruses that were there!

I have reinstalled programs, reinstalled the sound driver, ran Windows Recovery, reinstalling flash and defragmented the computer but unfortunately its still not fixed! I told this problem to a Mod over in the Virus Thread and they redirected me here. I can't say for sure when exactly this happened but it was after the Mod told me to update my Java, delete Viewpoint Media Player and update Adobe Reader that it happened.

I have a MSI Megabook S262 that runs Windows XP. Please let me know if there is any additional information you need from me.

First time here so here goes

I have a Fujisu Siemens, Esprimo Mobile laptop with Vista Home Premium. I used to be able to play video files but now all I get is the sound and nothing else when I play on Windows Media Player or winamp. When I try it on Core Media Player I get an error screen.
For some reason, I can view videos fine on the internet.

I've also tried to play some games (Halo, Medal of Honour:Allied Assault) and it just says I have problems with something with direct x

I looked around on google and tried looking at this and found out about running "dxdiag", here is what it said in the display tab

Also here is what the error screen was like with Core Media Player

EDIT: Turns out I get the video with mpg files but not avi

I am having problems with my computer, in fact my old laptop had the same problem with the same video files, any 1080p video files I may have on my computer will have a problem where the audio will stop for 3 - 5 seconds while the video continues to play, if I play-through the whole video with the audio stopping, the video ends before the audio, but if I skip to the end of the video at any point in the playback, the audio is in sync. I'm wondering if it is a Windows 7 related bug because the computers with the problem all run Windows 7. I could only find things on the internet regarding video websites like Youtube and such but I couldn't find anything with files on the computer. If those same videos I have problems with are uploaded to a video hosting website, they play just find without skipping on the website, even when my Internet slows around 6PM.

A:video files. audio keeps stopping, video continues to play

I am still having this problem
Can someone please help me?

I can run media players. They play FLACs and mp3s fine. But if I try to open any video file - be it avi, mpg, mkv, midi (I know, not a video format) - 'ZZZ has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution.'

VLC is my main squeeze. Crashes.
Uninstall, reinstall. VLC still crashes.
New version install. Crashes.
Nightly build. Crashes.
So maybe it's VLC?
Windows Media Player. Crashes.
Media Monkey. Crashes.
QuickTime Player. Crashes.
Update Windows. Update drivers. Update virus/malware scanner. Run virus/malware scan.
Everything still crashes. Every video file. Every player. Every video format. Only video files.

Haven't downloaded or installed anything new in weeks. Was running lots of video, all day, every day, for months. Literally opened one file and it ran, opened the next file in the folder, it crashed, and no video has worked in any player since.

I have about 6 .mov files taken of a hiking trip on a Ion Sport Cam camera. I've been trying Free Video Editor by dvdvideosoft.com. I have version 1.4.24. And there is supposed to be a new version available, but although the file on their site says free video Editor, its actually their Free Audio Ed.tor. Same file under their free Audio Editor. I have very little control over the video I'm editing nor can I join two of them together.

So, I'm looking for a replacement. I want to be able to join two or more .mov files, output in mp4 or mp3. Edit segments out, and edit audio, or export without audio.

I did do a search on here, but the programs mentioned were 2 years ago.

Win 8.1 notebook in my system specs below my posts. 64-bit OS.

Thanks !

This only happens to video that has to buffer before playing. It doesnt happen to video that just stream directly.

The image is distorded in weird colors, sort of looks like an infared diagram, where the outlines of the video are visible but colors all distorted. Again this only happens to video that is buffered first. I believe it is only on mpeg buffered video files.

video card has latest drivers and is radeon 9550

Some videos made using an online system, screencasts, now downloaded will not show the video component when played on the computer.  Windows Media Player 12 had played them just fine when they were online, but now using Windows Media Player 12 with the same video downloaded, only the Media Player's visualizations show but not the recorded video portion.  Why or what can I do?
Windows Vista
Windows Media Player 12
Downloaded videos as MP4 (actually onto external portable hard disk).

A:downloaded video files not play the video portion (mp4)

Download CCCP Codec Pack. After install make sure you reset user settings. Reboot and you should be able to play MP4's using the Classic Media Player included in the Codec Pack. This codec pack will let you play just about any media file. Don't worry about the Russian Looking page. The site is legit.
Go to Start -> Programs -> Combined Community Codec Pack and open the Settings manager.
Press "Next" to get to the second page.
Under "Special Settings", check "Reset All Settings".
Press Apply.
Select Yes to the question, and follow through the Settings until Apply is hit again.

I've tried a lot of things to figure this out and it's been going on for quite awhile, still if anyone can post any reason why it won't stream sound, please do so, I want help badly.

I tried an instill of a new hard drive and made it the master drive, however I couldn't install windows from a disc (pci.sys) so instead i copied my os off of the old hard drive but everything had to be copied. (If you can tell me an install process to help me with my sound that'll work too)

youtube doesn't work.. etc
absolutely everything from the internet = no sound except if it caches a file and plays that file instead.
checked volumes, "play sound in webages", downloaded codecs, flash, updates.
post anything, please?
