OK, so this goes under the Beats-me-what-I-did-but-I-did-something-that-worked category. The problem: I'm switching computers, so I installed Videopad on the new box registered it, and transferred about 350 gigs of video files (processed and originals) from the old box to the new one. when I went to test out the new machine with VP, I found that projects where the original (imported) files were avi, wmv, etc worked fine, however, the projects where the imported files were Quicktime files previewed with no audio (the little warning came up that the audio was processing, but the audio track window just showed a straight line). All I got was a buzzing in the speakers. Details: -- Videopad version (old box) - 6.10 - (site of the original work) -- Videopad version (new box) - 6.32 -- OS -- (old box) Windoze 8 -- OS -- (new box) Windoze 10 -- Problematic file types -- Quicktime .mov -- Audio format -- PCM What I did: I went thru the usual routine - clear the cache, reboot, re-install, pray, curse, scratch my head, Google every combination of terms I could come up with, all with no joy. The files previewed fine in VP on the old box, but not on the new. I used MediaInfo to compare the old/new and found no differences. The .mov files would play fine on the new box using Windoze Media Player and VLC Media Player. After a day or so, I finally thought "What would happen if I started a new project using one of these .mov files?" When I did that, POOF!!, it worked no problem - video AND audio!! Then came the amazing thing -- POOF! again!! My other vpj projects magically worked!! Video AND audio in the preview!! So, I have no idea if the starting a new project thing did anything, but I thought I'd post this just in case anybody else is out there scratching their head.
