Can't Add Anymore Background Audio To My Production


MJ Healy

Question

I've already added four audio mp3 clips to my production in videowave. However, I can't add anymore audio background clips. When I click on add audio background and browse to select my mp3 file and subsequently click on add to music track, the audio file does not appear on my timeline. The program goes through the process of adding the backround audio file but it does not eventually add it like before. I've tried adding a different audio file but it yields the same result. Why is this happening? By the way, I've ripped a few video clips from a previous made DVD movie and they were added sucessfully to Videowave in Roxio. I've have also noticed that the sound can go sometimes while viewing my video production in Videowave. Could the reason that I can't add anymore background audio files be caused by using some ripped video clips from another DVD? Have they corrupted my production in videowave? Or is this down to Roxio Creator 9 being unstable? At the same time, I really need some of these ripped video clips to compliment my production. It's very frustrating that I've gone along ways into the production and that I can't add anymore audio files. Roxio Creator 9 is also performing very sluggishly when editing my video production in Videowave. Could it be possibly be due to the few ripped video clips that were added to VideoWave that I can't add anymore background audio files? Is there a certain way to add ripped video that won't affect the running of Roxio. Please note, I need to add mp3 files and not any other audio format because my DVD set top box player only plays mp3 files.

 

I would welcome any suggestions that might sort out this frustrating problem.

You post was hard to read BUT here are a few things. 1) You can't have more audio than you have video (or images times duration.) For best results, add you music as wav files; not as mp3 files. The video clips should not affect the audio. If you want the video clips native audio then reduce the volume of your music. If you don't want to hear the clips native audio, reduce the volume or mute it.

 

Since you really didn't get specifically into what you are doing, perhaps if you watch this and tell us where you are aving the problem, we can provide more targeted help.

When you create a video DVD all mp3 files are converted to wav format audio before being used. This has nothing to do with your DVD player. I have never heard of a set-top DVD player that only plays mp3 files. Do you mean you cannot play audio CDS on your player?

Thanks for affording the time to reply. Firstly, I don't have more audio than I have video in my production. My video clips far exceed the time duration of my audio. All my video clips are quite long in duration. The total time of my video clips is 2 hrs approx. Anytime I managed to successfully insert a background audio in this specific production before, it used to place the background audio at the very end of the music track in timeline view. Then it was just a matter of dragging or moving the new audio to the desired location. But it doesn't do it anymore. VideoWave goes through the motions of adding my audio but it doesn't actually add the audio to my music track afterwards. I hope you understand this. I already know about muting the native audio etc but it doesn't answer my question unfortunately. If I opened a new production in VideoWave, I can once again add more background audio to my production. But on the specified production, I can't add anymore audio. Incidentally, if I add my music as wav files, my set top DVD player will not support this music version in playback as it will only play mp3 format audio.

 

Also, it's worth mentioning that I'm running Easy Media Creator 9 on a PC with 256 MB RAM and only 5GB free hard drive space. Could this be the problem? Or could some of the ripped video clips have caused this problem. But outside of the audio problem, VideoWave does not play my video clips sometimes in my production. Sometimes there is no sound when I play my video clips and this has nothing to do with muting the native audio. Other times it plays the video clips properly. By the way, that link doesn't open for me.

"By the way, that link doesn't open for me."

 

It is a flash file. I checked the link and it works. You will need to install flash player from Adobe. It appears that you know what you are doing so it is probably not going to help. BTW, the flash player often quits working and a new install will get it going again.

 

Have you noticed any other problems on your computer that might hint that Windows is corrupted?

Adding the audio to a video DVD as wav or mp3 is irrellevant and has nothing to do with your DVD player. All audio is "added" to the DVD in the same audio format and has nothing to do with the source format.

Yes, you have a problem. You need a new, large hard drive, and you need a minimum of 1 GB of RAM.

 

Thanks for your reply. I've read your response. However, I still meet the minimum system requirements though for Roxio Creator 9 with 256 MB RAM and with only about a little over 5GB of free hard drive space. The audio file type shouldn't make a difference as I should be able to add background audio files in mp3 format like I've done in the past. When I add backround audio, all audio file types are selected in the drop down list box anyway. I've already added four mp3 audio clips but it won't allow me add anymore despite the fact that my video clips far exceed my audio in duration. It looks like I will have to start a new production all over again from scratch without the ripped video clips and even possibly installing more memory on my computer. I just find Roxio Creator as being very unstable and I notice that it becomes more unstable with larger production files in Videowave and My DVD applications.

Keep telling yourself that you meet the minimum requirements, and carry on with your projects.

As I posted before, mp3 audio is not added to video as mp3 but first converted to wav and then added.

You don't have enough free space on your system and that is why EMC 9 becomes unstable - the minimum requirements are maybe Ok for burning CDs but they are a joke for video work.
