Video Copy & Convert Audio Missing

Question

I play a .MPG file in Win Media Player and it has video and sound. When I drag it into the Video Copy & Convert window and press the Play button, the video plays, but there is no sound. When I trim it to a new file, that file has no sound at all, even in Win Media Player. What am I missing?

I have a old Cannon Sure Shot that shots .avi video format, I have a new Cannon Sure Shot that shoots .mov video format.

 

 

The new .mov format play like yours in WMP but no sound in any Roxio program, I run it through Any Video Convertor a free app, and it has sound in Roxio.

 

 

It's not just Cannon problem! Where did your video come from and what format?

Sorry I took so long to get back to this - lots of projects going. I recorded the video from TV, onto a flash drive using an iView PVR. Sound plays fine on the iView. When I copy the video from the flash drive to my PC hard drive, there is no sound on playback.

 

Another way I record TV is with an AVer Media Volar Max USB stick in my PC. The same show records and plays back with sound. But if I use Roxio to trim the extra hour I accidentally got, I get no sound.

 

I realize there may be copy protection on these shows - Cosmos and The Story of the Jews - but I expected to be prohibited from copying in the first place. Allowing copy but without sound is a new one on me. Is there something else going on? What I want to do is store these recordings on my PC, regardless of where the original recording was done. Also, I want to be able to trim the videos. Nothing fancy.

Also ... Any Video Converter does not retain the sound. In fact, after opening the video, the Audio button is labeled 'No Audio' and the only other choice is 'Add Audio' (from a music file) . So, it appears the video's sound track is recognized by PLAYERS but not by EDITORS.

Can you make a short 30 sec or so sample available to us for testing? Upload it to a free web hosting site or a Cloud server

This is a 14-second clip I just recorded from local Fox channel using a AVerTV Hybrid Volar MAX tuner device. It plays with sound in my Win Media Player, but with no sound in Video Copy & Convert (also no sound in Any Video Converter).

 

None of the Video Editors that I have (except for MIcrosoft product) recognize the audio of the clip. None of the Video convertrors recognize the audio.

 

The only program that recognizes the audio are WMP and the Windows Movie Maker program. In fact I used WMM to rerender the clip to a 1280x720 video and then it would play the audio in all other programs. Perhaps you should contact Aver to see why their product is only compatible with Microsoft

I'll try the download to see what I get.

 

I did and looked at the details of the video. The audio bit rate is very high and putting it into Roxio's Video Wave played the video and in Copy and Convert but it did not have sound. I put it into another video editor and did have sound (but very quiet). For obvious reasons, I'm not going to post publicly what editor that was.

 

I also put it into my favorite video converter "Any Video Converter" and surprisingly it said there was NO AUDIO. Converting it did not yield audio. This confirms what you got.

 

The suggestion above is probably the right one. Go back to the manufacturer and find out why it needs to copy at the high bit rate.

This clip has no sound in my WMM. It's a mixed bag. I recorded several episodes of Cosmos using the AVer device; some have sound in WMP and WMM, some do not.

 

I also recorded last night's 60 Minutes and Good Wife on my iView, then transferred the recordings to my PC. Both recordings have sound in WMP and WMM. But an iView recording from last week did not have sound in WMP or WMM.

 

Because the same issue occurs in 2 completely different recording devices, my hunch is that it's not the recorder. All these recordings, by the way, play back with sound in the original recording devices.

If you mean the clip from "dropbox" by "This clip" then I havet sound when I used WMM
