No Sound For Some Videos

Question

I'm a long time Creator user and recently upgraded from Creator 9 to 2010. Not long ago I purchased a JVC FM1BU which is one of those Flip type pocket video recorders. The videos from this recorder play fine on my computer in WMP or Real Player, but when I load them into Videowave there is no sound and the video plays slowly with frequent pauses. Vid clips from other sources play fine, and if I mix clips in Videowave from my camcorder and the FM1, the camcorder clips play as they should, but the FM1 clips do not.

 

I have a Sony Vaio with a Pentium 4, 3.2 GHz and 1.5 GB of RAM. At first I thought the "high def" clips from the FM1 were simply overpowering my 5 year old computer, but the problem continued even when I reset the FM1 to standard video. Still no sound and erratic video playback. I also tried it in Creator 9 and got the same results. The sound track is "visible" on the "native audio track" but not audible. If I try to edit native audio, I still get silence. I also went as far as burning a clip to an image (iso) file to see if the sound played back once rendered. I had sound for the Title Menu, but silence when playing the clip.

 

Does anybody have any ideas as to what the problem is?

Yes, camcorder manufacturers don't always follow the standards so some programs won't work well. (Sony, Manasonic and JVC are the worst)

 

The simplest and best workaround is to use something like "Any Video Converter" or other that you can download from cnet.com and convert the flip videos to HD mpg2. You can do a batch convert for all the videos. The program will convert them quickly. Once you do that, they will work.

 

Come back and let us know how you make out.
