Converting From Blu-Ray To Other Format Using Roxio Converter

Question

When using the Roxio Converter to change format from MKV or MP4 to Divx(avi) or HD (WMV) the converted video is good, but there is no sound. The conversion process is supposed to use MP3 for Divx and WMA for HD. Both formats have no sound after conversion. How do I get the sound to convert?

What is Roxio Converter? Do you mean Video Copy and Convert or do you have a different application? You also posted about blu ray video. Are you talking about high definition video? Where did you get the video files and how did you get them onto your computer?

 

You posted in Creator 2012. Do you have the full version or do you have an OEM that came with your computer?

 

Please post a short piece of the video (unconverted) 2-3 seconds on a file sharing site like upForDown or other so we can try it.

To digital guru:

 

You are correct. I was using copy and convert on Roxio Creator 2012. As suggested I uploaded to upfordown. The location for the avi and mp4 are as follows:

http://www.upfordown.com/files/download/13473/samplecopy.mp4 and

http://www.upfordown.com/files/download/13473/sample.avi

 

They are short trailers. Note that the mp4 (converted mkv since upfordown does not allow mkv) was run through the copy and convert to avi.

 

Please advise how to avoid loss of sound when converting. Thanks. The mp4 plays fine with video and sound and the avi has good video and no sound.

.

 

I used GOM player, Roxio and Nero, with the same results with no sound after converting using Roxio..

I asked for an unconverted sample of a video What you posted is already converted and will tell me nothing except that there is or isn't audio after the conversion. There are other file sharing sites that might let you upload the original format.

 

Download and try the free "Any Video Converter" and run a couple of files through it to see if you have audio. If so, then that perhaps is an answer. If not, it means that the original files may be corrupted or non standard. Do you have the DivX converter on your computer?

 

I'm downloading the avi file now. I got a message that the mp4 files could not be downloaded due to excessive band width. How long is the avi file; it is taking forever to download?

I got the same warning about the first file. Uploader Message File not found. It may have been removed due to excessive bandwidth usage or other reasons.

 

The second file said 36mb when I saved it to disc. I show 5% left and it's been 25 minutes. Remember upfordown is free not fast. :lol:

Your internet is faster than mine. I get the same as you do.

 

The original file is needed just a couple of seconds; not the length you posted (over a minute). If it is a commercial movie, where did you get it from? Do you have the Digital rights to copy it? Where are you going to put it after you convert it?

I got the trailer by email telling me that the movie was real good and I should go and see it. I do not have the full commercial film. I just got Roxio Creator 2012 loaded on my computer and was trying out the features and noticed that the converted avi file had no sound. Is there a problem with the Roxio conversion or is there a setting when using the copy and convert that I should be changing? What was uploaded was a 2-3 minute trailer, just over 100 MB. It took less than a minute to upload each file. The mp4 extension was renamed from mkv. Sony told me to try it if you cannot play mkv. It sometimes works.

Did that e-mail have a link to the trailer? Can you post it or at least let us know which movie so we can try to download the trailer.

 

Do you have the latest version of Apple Quicktime on your computer? I do but still can't get the audio on what you posted but if you don't have it, perhaps it would work with your original video trailer.

 

Did you try the converter that I told you to try? What was the result?
