Audio Won't Burn From Quick Time Files


MyBabyCakes
 Share

Question

I have been making and burning Video DVD's with my 5MP Casio very successfully; it captured in .wmf files, I think.

My new 10MP Casio Exilum camera I got for Christmas uses Quick Time for the Video, and I cannot get a Video DVD to burn WITH AUDIO. In fact I cannot get the file to open in MyDVD for any editing at all, with audio. The Timeline shows a green line all the way through, for Native audio--and the volume has been moved up to "6"--but still no audio.

 

If I play the clip from it's location on my hard drive, it opens with Quick Time and has the audio, so I know it can't be the file itself causing the problem. What has to be done in Roxio to get it to recognize and/or capture and burn the audio files that are part of the Quick Time .MOV files? I am using Vista Home Basic, and I did not download iTunes with Quick Time, because I don't have any of the devices it seems to be for.

 

The larger memory card is the only reason I wanted a new camera; and at this point the camera is useless to me.

Since you did not say what camera you got I had to make a guess. Unfortunately, that camera MAY take video in a "motion JPEG" format. If so, Roxio will not handle it. None of the Roxio programs will handle mjpeg.

 

I'm taking a guess because this is the only thing I could find regarding video format.

Q4. Why can't I playback movies recorded with this camera with Windows Media Player?

 

A. Windows Media Player does not support the AVI format (Motion JPEG) used by CASIO. There are two AVI formats: Motion JPEG and Video for Windows. CASIO uses Motion JPEG because it allows faster processing. To playback AVI format (Motion JPEG) files, install Quick Time from the CD-ROM that comes bundled with the camera."

 

If this is true for your particular camera, then you must convert that mjpeg format to something that Roxio will handle.

 

You might want to try this converter (link) to see if it will handle the mjpeg and convert it to mpg2. You can download and try it. I have not.

 

It will open and play in Quicktime because that program supports the mjpeg format.

It's probably recording the sound in mono, which has caused issues. The work around is to convert that file as Steve suggests. One that I have used, and is free w/ no trial period, is Super..

 

Once you run it through that application, your sound should appear in Videowave, etc.

My 5MP Exilim takes the video in AVI, played with Windows Media Player, and worked gread in Roxio with no extra conversions. The new 10MP Exilim (EX-S10) takes video in >MOV Quick Time; it even says so in the manual. I already installed the latest QuickTime and checked for any updates.

The camera does record in mono, but so does the older one, which had great sound in Roxio and after being Burned to disc.

Different cameras may use different methods to record images. movies, etc.

It seem to me that the .mov files created by your 10MP Exilim (EX-S10) needs some help to get Roxio get that audio. I know its a workaround, but it has worked for other users. Super is free (link in my prior post) and will likely help.

I downloaded and installed "SUPER", but I'm not sure I am smart enough to use it. Do I need to convert the whole .mov file to an .avi file, or what?

Actually, you can keep it as a .mov file; the program just (typically) converts the file so as to change the mono sound into a version Videowave, etc. can use.

 

This is a screenshot showing the options I use in Super to "convert" a .mov file into another .mov file that Videowave can use:

Once you get the hang of some of the quirks of the program (dragging your file into the program, for ex.), its pretty easy.

 

Let me know how it works out!

I will try SUPER on a test copy of a video made on the new camera, but I am still worried about lowering the quality of the outcome video/DVD movie, by having to do all these file conversions on it. I have always just dumped my camera files, both photo and video, from my camera to my computer; do you think I should be using some other form of transfer for them, that would keep me from having to do all this file converting with a separate 3rd party program.

 

I am REALLY worried about our friends who are reluctant to install or use any program on their computer, unless I am right there to guide them through it or do it for them. (They don't even know how to order online without me doing it for them.) If this seems complicated to me, it is going to be overwhelming for them--and I am the one who recommended the camera because I was so well pleased with my 5MP model.

Several questions-- My version of SUPER doesn't offer AAC by itself--It offers AAC LC or AAC Main. Then the default on the program was 29.97 for Frame/Sec., should I reset it to 25? Then after I press Encode, and it has finished, how do I get it to save, so it will be available to pull into My DVD Express?

 

These are simple productions, and I do not want menus, so that seems to work best for me--at least it did before all these new problems. My only problem used to be, getting the discs burned so that they would work in all or our members DVD players.

It HASN'T worked out..... I did a "convert" on several different test files, using similar to your layout, and I cannot get ANY of them to save into the SUPER Output folder, or anywhere else. I even did a search of the computer for the files, and it said there were no matching files at all---even with an advanced search. I cannot check the files in My DVD without being able to find the new version. I even checked to see if SUPER had just changed the original files, and they still have no sound, so I don't guess the program did that either. I tried to pull the files into the Roxio Videowave, and it would only list still shot photos, even with me toggling through any and all usable formats listed. MOV is listed in those usable files, but it sure won't open and show any .mov file names that are in any of my saved folders on my computer.

 

I feel like the new camera was the biggest mistake I could have made--and I have LOVED every Casio camera I have owned, but not the other brands. The 5MP Exilim was doing great, except that I could only use 1 GB memory cards, so I had to change Memory Cards in the middle of our "Vintage Ladies" Performances.

I received your e-mail.

 

I'll keep you updated via pm.

To the OP.

Did you get Bias Sound Soap with your EMC 10 or have it from an earlier version? If so, open that, add the mov file and then output the audio to a wav file. Add the mov file to Video Wave, mute the native audio track and add the wav file to one of the other audio files. It will fit exactly but you will have to adjust the start to line up perfectly.

Steve,

 

She did find a workaround to get the sound on her clip and she is currently working on getting it to look its best on a DVD.

 

Your additional suggestion is another nice tip.

I have had the same problem not being able to locate the converted files using Super. Where do they reside after conversion?

I downloaded and installed SUPER and did test conversions. I can't locate the converted files. Where do they reside after conversion with Super?

 

Thanks,

 

Jim
