VideoWave 8 not responding after adding music


Steen Pallesen

Question

I am having trouble with adding music to a video production in videowave 8.

 

When I click "Add background audio" and selects ex. a mp3 file, approx. 5-8 seconds later videowave stops responding and I can only exit the program by alt+ctrl+del.

 

 

My system:

Microsoft windows XP Professional

Version 2002, SP2

 

Computer:

Intel

Pentium 4 CPU, 2,4 GHz

2 Gb RAM

 

Soundcard:

Creative SB Live! Value

 

Videocard:

ASUS X850

 

Thanks in advange for your help

Did you update your video drivers and install the latest DirectX 9.0c from Microsoft?

 

Although you have an Asus card, it's actually an ATI one modified by Asus, but drivers are available here

 

I have now updated my Directx to Directx 9.0c and my display drivers is:

Driver provider: ATI Technologies Inc

Driver date: 17-03-2006

Driver version: 8.24.0.0

Digital signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher

 

I still get a "frozen" Videowave 8 (not responding) when I try to add some background music to a video production ?!?

Did you try the Asus drivers from the link I mentioned? As I said, the card was modified by Asus (some of the chips have a different i/d number) and you may need to use the Asus set rather than the referefnce ATI ones

Asus built the card with ATI chipset technology. No different than any company building a Nvidia card, with Nvidia chipset technology.

It shouldn't be different - but some of the ATI drivers won't work because the ident number on the chips is different:

 

"...# you can install the newest ati-chipset driver, BUT it won't find your card (in my case Asus X850XT)

# BECAUSE: ASUS branded their chips (which are ATI chips of course) with another ChipID than the original ATI-Chipset ..."

Yes - I have now also installed the recommended driver from ASUS: ati82034_w2kxp.zip

Still the same...

BUT by coincident, I selected a another random mp3 file that didnt bring Videowave to not responding.

It actually worked perfect!?!?!!.

When I try other MP3's than this one now working - Videowave goes into "Not responding" mode.

 

My procedure is this:

Click add background music.

Select an mp3 file

Click play story

 

If nothing happens imidiately, I right click on the music part in the story line (to the left) and select "delete" - this makes Videowave not chrash.

- If I dont do anything then Videowave doesnt chrash.

But if I move the blue slider over the music part then it chrashes.

Likewise if I select play story, Videowave chrashes (not responding)

 

I have one out of thousands of mp3's that does work ?!?!?!

I have tried to see if there is anything special about this particular mp3 (bit rate, kbs etc) it is all the same as 99% of all my other mp3 files.

 

Could it be that Videowave somehow "remembers" this particular mp3 and then can't play others ?!!

 

It does seems like it has not anything to do with video driver then ?!

 

Best regards

Convert the mp3 files to wav files and try again. Use Sound Editor to do the conversion if you have it. Since you are not in the US, the DRM probably doesn't affect you but if the music file has DRM protection, you cannot use that music directly in the program.
