Adding ac3 audio codec?


E Brent Price

Question

Anything I burn with ac3 audio comes out without sound. The avi files plays fine on Mediaplayer, but in Cineplayer no sound either.

 

I have GSpot and VideoInspector. GSpot says I have the codec, Inspector says I don't and invites me to download it. That takes me back to where I downloaded it in the first place: http://ac3filter.sourceforge.nethttp://ac3...sourceforge.net

 

I tried a couple other places but no luck.

 

Also, my Windows 2000 Computer Management reports a list of installed codecs and ac3 ain't there.

 

I'm stumpted. Can anyhelp suggest something?

My copy of AC3 shows up in my Control Panel, Computer Manager & Add/Remove Programs. Sure doesn't sound like yours' got installed properly.

 

I don't know what else to suggest, I mean all you do is download the AC3 executable and run it.

DirectX is the latest. I haven't really checked the ac3 forum yet, but I wonder if there are others out there. That guy with the Win XP problem might not apply to 2000. Do you have Windows 2000 Pro?

 

Or do I have a quirk? Went through NoAdware, Mcafee scan, and defraged the drives.

I run WinXP SP2 and I'm out of ideas (not that I had very many in the first place :) )

Make sure you have SP4 installed.

Well, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still have the same thing. I do show it in Add/Remove Programs, but not Computer Manager or VideoInspector. This is AC3Filter version .070b, yes? It seems to be some kind of mixing program, but GSpot says it's a real codec .ax

 

Seems odd that GSpot and VideoInspector disagree. Oh, and my audio/video etc. drivers are up to date.

Yep, I have the same version installed.

 

The AC3 project group has a support forum here

and this fellow had similar symptoms here

 

What's your status on DirectX? Is it the latest (9.0c)? Try Start/Run and type in dxdiag in the run box to determine the version.
