Video but no audio whatsoever

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded VideoPad today (paid version) and I'm having the same issue, no matter what video files I import. Audio works everywhere else on my system, even within the VideoPad software when checking out the stock sounds. But once I add them to the Timeline and try to play them back, no sound. I can see the track and waveform on the timeline, but it doesn't play.

 

Could you please check Options->Audio->Playback Device, make sure it is Default Playback Device?

@discoqueen:

 

Before uploading as Borate suggested, could you please check a few more things:

  1. When you imported a video file, can you see the audio track below the video track?
  2. If you can see an audio track, is the audio track has waveform on it or just a straight light.

If the video is imported properly, is should look like this:

So I tried everything I could with the .avi, but I get the same encoding issues with every encoder I have on the list, however as it is working correctly with the .mpeg now, that's not really an issue for me.

 

More importantly, even after the updates I'm still getting the blank waveform audio line when I import video clips. If I split the audio and video outside of VideoPad, then import them separately, I have no issues, but importing as a block A/V file doesn't work. After you mentioned the extra blank channel on the file, I figured that this would be a stereo recording issue, but I get the same problem still with files recorded in mono, so there's no real possibility of multiple channels.

 

 

Any ideas?

VideoPad does not support multiple sound track at the moment.

 

Before we implement the feature split the audio outside VideoPad is the workaround.

Hi been following this problem with great interest. You've hit the nail on the head c_major

Had sound issues with the download of this prog myself so went to options as suggested and checked audio setting, located top of prog on RHS

It will most probably be already set on Default playback device, BUT you need to specify which one you want   i.e. Comm headphones or Speakers,  otherwise it will be muted permanently.

BTW on my first try, on selecting headphones, nothing occurred, but go back and click again and you'll be good to go 

Am using VideoPad v6.10    ?

6/5/2019 My videopad worked well few a weeks ago but now there is no sound.  None of the previous suggestions worked.  No sound from any audio library files.  Volume is high mute is off.  Tried both Audio options - [direct sound] default playback device
and [direct sound] speaker/headphone(realtek definition audio)

All other audio playing devices on my MS Win10 system work well.  I did not re-install videopad for fear an installation limit my prevent further use.

Obviously, something isn't right.  What version of VP is being used, and is it Windows or Mac?

The best way to diagnose your issue is to be able to run it.  Please share the project and someone will check it out.  It's not difficult...
