Videowave Loses Sound In Windows 8 - Split From Another Topic


RUSSELL CAMPBELL

Question

I have Roxio Creator NXT 2013 running on Windows 8. Within VideoWave and upon dragging videos (Mpeg 2) to the Storyline, the video looses the audio. If it does come across, it is only temporary. I ultimately would create a movie containing these videos and photos and burn them to DVD. The DVD plays without audio My DVD recorder/player which requires Mpeg files. However the DVD plays okay on my more recent TV/ DVD player.

I didn’t have this problem with Roxio on my previous PC which ran Windows Vista.

Any ideas.

You would get better answers if you started your own thread rather than threadjacking one. Are you sure that the files you are adding to Video Wave are mpg2 and not MOV files? In either case, use a free videeo converter to convert the files to mpg2 (again) and then add them to Video Wave. The audio format in the videos may be one that VideoWave doesn't like Perhaps it is the bit rate).

 

Of course, if you don;t have audio in Video Wave,I would not expect you to have audio with a DVD player. Are you authoring a DVD via Create DVD or are you outputting the video to a file and then burning to a DVD (data DVD)?

I don't understand the highlighted part o.fd your post.

Are you saying the DVD you burned plays correctly on your DVD player connected to your TV? If that is correct then the program worked correctly.

What do you mean by "the video looses the audio. If it does come across, it is only temporary"/

 

Perhaps you had explain exactly what you are doing. From where are the video mpegs your are dragging to Videowave?

I understand it!

 

If you play a clip in NXT VW with Win7 there is audio...

 

If you Right Click and choose Trim - Native Audio, there is NO Audio...

 

It does work with Creator 2010 & Win7, or with Creator 2012 in XP and with NXT and Win 8:

I am in the process of installing 24 updates, so I will try this PC again after I reboot ;)

Thank you for responding. The bold lettering in red wasn’t my doing.

I have been attempting to create a movie that has video and audio for burning onto a DVD. I have successfully done this on numerous occasions in the past on my previous PC, running on Vista, using both Roxio Creator 2011 and sometimes Windows Movie Maker and DVD Maker. I was able to watch and listen to the DVDs on my DVD player/recorder connected to a TV. I now have a new PC running Windows 8 and has Roxio Creator NXT installed.

As an experiment I went back to my previous PC which is an old clapped out laptop. It doesn’t operate on mains power anymore; only on battery power, hence session times are short. I imported one of the MOV files into Creator 2011. The MOV file came from the same camera source that I have been using for the last 2 years. I then converted it to Mpeg 2, dragged it to the Storyline in VideoWave where the audio was retained. I created a Production using “Output” and “Export as” and burnt a DVD. I played it on the DVD player/recorder and a TV/DVD player. In both cases there was audio. I copied the converted Mpeg 2 file from Creator 2011 into NXT on my current PC. When I dragged the file into the Storyline, the audio was gone. I created a Production using “Output” and “Export as”. There was audio in the Production file. I burnt a DVD and played it in each device. There was only audio on the TV/DVD player and not the DVD recorder/player. I added the Mpeg 2 file to Windows 8 Movie Maker. There was audio and but no video. The problem isn’t critical, just annoying. In the mean time I will go on producing movies on DVDs and watch and listen to them on the TV/DVD player.

Yes. I have the latest updates. I found this on Microsoft Windows website - "MPEG-2 format video isn't supported by default on Windows 8. It is supported in Windows 8 Pro with Windows Media Center. If you're running Windows 8 and you want to use MPEG-2 format videos, you should upgrade to Windows 8 Pro with Windows Media Center, or install a third-party MPEG-2 video decoder solution." It might explain a few things.

I downloaded VLC although I already had a couple media players that would play the Roxio converted Mpeg 2 videos. However I have made a little progress. I had a look at another forum within Roxio Community where I should have started this topic. Someone else had the same problem as me. The advice was to try a third party video converter such the free “Any Video Converter”. I downloaded this and converted a few MOV files to Mpeg2 using this Converter. When I dragged the new Mpeg2 videos into Roxio NXT “VideoWave Storyline”, audio was retained. I created a “Production” and burnt a DVD in NXT. There is still no audio when played on the DVD recorder/player, only TV/DVD player. I have had other issues with Windows 8/Roxio Creator NXT that didn’t exist in Vista/Roxio Creator 2011.

Win 8 doesn't have anything to do with the output of Roxio...

 

One trick that is sometimes required of DVD Players is to set your Audio to LPCM before burning in MyDVD

Try one like that and see if it makes your disc more all around compatible in Players ;)

 

Also, I suggest you settle on ONE Player and remove the others... It isn't just for clutter, multiple programs that do the same thing can lead to conflicts.
