Preferred Solution: Dvd player has sound with a music cd, no sound with a movie

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sounds like you are missing some sound codecs, at the very least. Luckily Techspot can provide them for you...

Hope this solves your problem.

Complicated problem.

About five months ago, Media Center and Media Player stopped wanting to play movie files. They play music fine, but videos, including AVI, MPEG, and so on, nada. I can run them in VLC, but I find VLC fairly cumbersome and, frankly, I'd like the functionality I paid for.


I've tried downloading codec packs. I've tried K-Lite. I've tried CCCP. Nada.

And now, now Windows Movie Maker won't import music. Neither will PhotoStory 3. Are these related?

What can I do?

Thanks my friends.

A:Background music player's sound becomes low

Those two things are weird
First of all your sound issue
Lets make sure that your windows are up to date
Then go to computer manufacturer's site and search for your model computer's Drivers
Update Chipset, audio, video USB, LAN, WLAN drivers (whatever applies to your computer)

Test it out and lets see what happens

Hey all,

So, heres the scenario! My friends laptop used to play music fine in different media players like iTunes, winamp, limewire and so on... Her computer for the past few weeks hasn't played any music. When she hits the play button or double clicks a song nothing happens. It doesn't even begin to play she says.

I asked her if she heard any sound during regular use of the computer. She said yes, she hears everything fine, even youtube videos and music through websites.

She checked the device manager, nothing out of the norm there. I do plan on walking her through how to scan indepth for viruses and spyware and such, but other than that I'm stuck!

Any help is much appreciated!! Thank you all

At a lab I've spent numerous hours on this animation that I'm entering into a national competition. In PowerPoint I had my friend narrate it, and uploaded to drop-box. It was all working perfectly, but now at home when I downloaded it most all of the sound clips are recognized as movies, and won't play. Two of the sound clips still are recognized as sound clips and will play, but the other 12 don't. How do I fix this? The due date is tomorrow.

A:Powerpoint is recognizing sound clip as movie, won't play the sound

Not knowing what format they were uploaded to and if they all were uploaded in the same format, its hard to say. Are you using the same powerpoint version?

Can you look at them individually within powerpoint and see what they are listed as (not the powerpoint show).

Although this is an audio problem, its more a Powerpoint problem and maybe should be posted in the MS Office section.

Each time I try to play a song or video in wmp, itunes, VLC media player, InterVideo, etc. I get absolutely no sound. Videos play, I can see the images perfectly fine, but there's silence.
However, if I want to watch a video on youtube or anywhere else online, the sound works. There's got to be a simple solution to this but I can't seem to find it. Any help? I've been putting up with this for a long time and I'd really like to finally get it sorted out.
Oh and before you ask, the media players are not muted.

I have a PC-Chips M848 ALU V2.1 motherboard with an onboard soundcard, C-media CMI9739A 6 channel audio.
I have downloaded the latest driver from the PC chips website, as the one that came on the CD didn't work at all. I also have the AC97 Realtek drivers installed.

My problem is that if I try & play an MP3 or a DVD the sound gets really jumpy or if it's missing part of the track out. It sounds like when there is a thumbprint on a CD & it skips over it.

Now I'm new to this so it might be something simple like it is set up to play through 6 speakers or something & as I only have 2 that is the problem, if it is great but can someone tell me how to do this. If not can someone suggest some other solutions??

I'm running XP Pro.


A:on board sound problems - sound keeps jumping / dropping music.

Onboard audio can use alot of system resources and you will get audio artifacts when there are programs running in the background, system memory is low or you have an under powered processor. Win XP Pro has alot of crap running in the background. What are your other system specs? You may want to think about getting a sound card. Good ones run $20-30.

A:please some help with the movie sound...

Your onboard sound output is probably 5.1 capable and set to be 5.1 too.

And you might only have stereo speakers, possibly plugged into an incorrect output.

Moral of the story: Make sure your 2 speakers are plugged into the front speaker output 1/8" jack. In sound settings, set the output to be 2 channels (stereo).

Hello everybody!

I used Nero vision (In nero 7) to transcode an .avi movie to a dvd one. The process of transcoding and burning was all right and with correct burning configurations (auto fit mode, PAL) . I use Optiarc DVD RW Ad-7200S recorder and Teac dvd-rw 4x certified disc. I have already rewritten it many times with movies and it's ok.
The problem is after burning the specific movie. When I play the burned movie from the disc, there is no match between the sound and the movie. I used to play with a couple of other programs and put the disc to another cd/dvd drive the problem is still bothering.

Can anyone help please?

I am trying to make a slide show in WMM. Everything seems to be working except the audio. I tried 2 add an mp3 to the time line but there is no sound. The track plays but there is nothing to be heard. Any ideas?

A:Windows Movie Maker : No sound from mp3.

Do you get the visual graphic fequency bands of sound to show up in the Audio/music timeline when you drag the MP3 there? If so it might be simply that your audio levels have been set all the way down in the program. If you just get a straight line (no sound detected) then there is a problem with WMM not being able to pick up on the audio of the MP3. Assuming the MP3 has a common standard bitrate and such and WMM fails with all MP3s added, you've got bug that is not so easily diagnosed.

I've had that problem while using Movie maker, as well as Sony Vegas Pro 11. I fixed it by going into my recording devices, disabling everything I'm not using, disabling what I AM using, and re-enabling it. Another thing you can do, is go to you sound devices and click the "Communications" tab and check "Do Nothing". That was my main problem.

Ok, so I'm playing around with different audio setups and some questions came up in my head.

So here goes...:

I'm currently fiddling around with a full 7.1 surround setup and the following came to my attention when I play newer DVD's like Fast 5:

Front speakers, left, right and rear surround plays only music and other sound effects(no vocals);

Centre speaker plays the vocals loud and very clear;

LFE channel speaker plays ultra-low booming bass sounds (which AFAIK is the job of the LFE speaker).

What I want to know, is it normal that the vocals only come from the centre speaker? Is that what create the effect of the voices coming out of the screen (in a cinema for instance)?

I've attached a rough drawing of the setup

A:Solved: Movie Surround Sound

That's often how it is. Check your Sound applet in Control Panel and make sure the speakers are set up as they should be, or how you want them. Then do the tests that are there, too.

What kind of cable do you have? You need to run a separate cable from the audio out on the VCR to the input on your soundcard.

If you had a sound card before, then your purchase was useless. Any soundcard made in this century is 16-bit.

Ok now my situation here is this one , I use Nero7 to burn my DVD's and use VLC to watch my videos , movies ,documents etc...

But lately I'm having this trouble when I try to Burn a disc and try to watch a movie at the same time , the movie slow down quite a bit and the sound lags and it's choppy and with a weird echo as well

O.S. Windows XP P.D.3.00Ghz 1.50 Ram ,

I try to search the forums but still havent found anything similar, pls, forgive my ignorance at this matter.
Thank you for help.

A:Sound Lag when watching movie and burning at same time.

Burning needs to be done at high priority so that data can be fed to the drive at the right speed. It often will take precedence over other processes.

Check your Task Manager to see if there is something other than the burner that is using a lot of CPU. It may be more than just the burner that slows things down. You could also try increasing the priority of VLC to "Above Normal", but keep in mind that it is possible that this could cause a burn to fail. It's worth a try.

Shutting down other processes will help, too.

In fact, controlling process priorities is often useful. Bitsum's Process Lasso is a good app that can be set to increase the priority of your players to "Above Normal" every time they are used. It also restrains "out-of-control" processes so that they don't slow down the machine. The free "ProcessTamer" is another that you might prefer.

Another tool, "PowerMenu", allows you to right-click the taskbar tab or title bar of a program and change priority from the context menu. This add-on also has other options, like minimizing to tray and transparency.

Somehow the sound got turned off in Windows Live Movie Maker. The computer has sound in other applications, but in Live Movie Maker there is no sound, even though the volume is turned full up, when I click the "Video Volume" it shows a red circle with a red line thru it indicating the sound is turned off.
It worked in the past, I used it to make movies. How do I turn the sound back on"

A:No sound in Windows Live Movie Maker

If everything else works OK, I would suspect a problem with the Movie Maker. Try reinstalling that and see if it fixes it. You may have to uninstall it, restart the PC, and then download it from Microsoft to reinstall (do not skip the PC restart - if you just uninstall and reinstall without restarting the original problem can still be there).

As an alternative to your issue, try using VLC player, it's free and at least you'll be able to watch/listen to your videos.

VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

For you problem, I'm wondering if something has been left over from the uninstall, which could be causing your problem. Try using Revo Uninstaller and uninstall it with that then download and install movie maker and see what happens.

When i import some files into WMM and drag them into the timeline, it fails to acknowledge any accumpanying sound. Strange thing is, it will be fine with one .wmv file... and not the next.

Very confusing. Possibly a codec clash? I don't know enough about these things. Any help it rectifying the problem?

I downloaded a movie from Limewire. The movie is one hour twentynine minutes long. When I playback on Windows Media Player the screen freezes up but the sound continues on. This happens at fortyfour minutes into the movie. Its the only movie I have tried to download. I am asking if there is something I am doing wrong before I try downloading another. I have downloaded this movie three times.

My system is Windows XP home, 57gb C, 786 ram.

I've successfully used an M-Audio "Audiophile" 24/96 stereo PCI card as well as an RME 8 in/out PCI card under Windows-7.

M-Audio does have Win-7 drivers for the Delta series (this includes the Audiophile).
I see that even Microsoft Win-7 has built in drivers for the Delta series of audio cards.

RME's drivers are so good they seem to work well under any version of Windows.

Be warned, Win-7 does take some optimizing.

Hi mitcho, welcome to the forums...

to be honest, it does sound like a codec issue.

What codecs did you install? Also, does web based video/embedded content play ok?

Plus another thing to check is the program settings to see if your sound card is still selected as the default audio this can something get changed without 'reason'.

I may have posted this question previously in the wrong area. I'm new to this forum.

I video using a Sony HD cam and the video gets downloaded to my computer with decent sounds from the environment I was filming. The editing capabilities of that software are limited so I import that video to Windows Movie Maker 6.0. When I play the video in Windows Movie Maker the sounds that were there originally are all gone. How can I use the improved editor but keep the sounds?

A:Losing Sound from Sony MPEG to Windows Movie Maker 6.0

At first guess I would think WMM doesn't support the audio codec that your camera uses. Check to see if your camera uses a "wierd" codec and campare it to the codecs that WMM supports. You may have to use a program like Virtual Dub to convert the audio if this is the case. Another option is to see if the camera can save the audio in a differnt format or maybe upgrade to a more advanced program.

A:How to Get that 'Radio Station Sound' with Your Own Music

A ripped CD that is stored in WAV format should sound 100 times better than internet radio. Most internet radio is barely pushing out 128 kbps or at best 192 kbps audio stream, whereas a ripped CD is pumping out an uncompressed 1411 kbps audio stream. The difference is night and day. I have about 6,000 CDs stored on my system that I ripped myself, some I ripped using dbPowerAmp, and some I ripped using EAC. Both are very good ripping tools. I playback using foobar2000 in a pure WASAPI method, but River Media is really good as well. If you do not like the sound of a ripped CD, then maybe you are doing something wrong. I use an outboard DAC and a Marantz amplifier to playback my files, the sound can be ethereal. Computer based audio is a very big hobby, I have been into it for about 5 years, but I began collecting albums back around 1965, so I have a big head start in this area.​

While installing sound drivers for CMI 8338 (The drivers that I had was old, and it didnt' have win 2000 drivers on it, so I install win NT4 drivers), I was told that the default I/O address and Interrupts for the driver was being used to windows automatically used new ones.

Afterwards, when I played music with winAmp, it looks like the music is playing, but I get no sound out my speaker.

I have checked volume control to see if anything was on mute.
What can I do to get sound?

Thinking about it now, the problem might be that win 98 is using the right I/O address and Interrupts. So when I get home, I'm go into win 98 and uninstall the sound driver to check.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there!

The first thing is...

Are your speakers Analog or Digital?

This makes a difference as to some of the settings.

go into your advanced volume control options and check to see if the output settings maych what your speakers are. Some sound cards will set things a certain way and everything works, but you get no sound because it's the wrong output.

If you have digital speaners, get headphones, connect to where your speakers plug in to the back of the PC, see if you can hear anything. if you can hear music from the headphones but not the speakers, you know you're set to Analog output and not digital.

Also, if the above don't work, what speakers are you using? brand and Model!

A:I Can't Here Any Sound... And i'm dying of music deprivation...

You did not say what OS you are using, but the following is for Win9x/ME. Go to the Control Panel>System and on the Device Manager tab, scroll down to the entry for Sound and let us know if any device is listed or not. If it is, does it have a yellow! or red circle by it?

Not sure when this happened - but I am no longer able to play music with the Microsoft Music app when switched to desktop or another app. When switching, the music app is immediately suspended and sound and playback ceases.
In the past, music continued playing in the background and when I adjusted the volume, a display would come up showing the current song playing. It seemed that the app was integrated into the system in this way, but no longer.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I have the Realtek HD Audio Software installed.
I also have Windows Media Center installed.

I have attached a picture of a sound control panel tab which I thought may be related but changing the settings has had no effect.

A:Music App - No Sound - Suspended when switched

it should still work in the background.

have you changed anything recently (since it stopped working)? updated drivers? installed software?

I have a strange experience with sounds lately I have no come background games of music sound How some different? idea why this happening or what is causing it but here it is How come some background music of games sound different? One day I was doing some light gaming on both my tower and laptop since both my computers meets the minimum requirements and while playing this game I heard some unusual sounds on both How come some background music of games sound different? my laptop and tower my laptop while playing the background music of the game seemed to be missing a couple or not few sound types in the game On my tower it sounded like it had an extra beat as if I could here that extra sound s with the background music playing I can t explain real good but to simplify this my laptop seemed to be lacking of some melody beats while my tower has it all and slightly deeper bass I turned my laptop speakers high yet no extra melody beat appeared I How come some background music of games sound different? did the same with the tower sounded the same as before but just louder I am sure I installed this game on both my computer successfully with no errors I reinstalled it again and same problem occurred I don t understand is the speakers more sensitive on the tower and giving it more variety of sounds or is the laptop speakers not so sensitive in outputting more variety of sounds Or both are wrong and it is just the matter of XP and VISTA or is it the software or drivers installed for the sounds Is something wrong with the speakers Do I need buy better ones Ones that s suppose to act normal nbsp

A:How come some background music of games sound different?

try updating your sound drivers first, then you might want to look into past problems others might have had with this games sound. Since this happened to both your computers at the same time it sounds like the problem is the game.

A simple test to see if your speakers are broke is music on them. Does it sound fine? yes? then it's not your speakers

unfortunatly without knowing what game it is that you are talking about I can't really look into any problems others have had with it.

I am new to the forum. Just bought a new computer with vista ultimate 32 bit. I use an E-Mu 1616m pro-sound card, and need to install it in my new machine. It is a PCMCIA card that worked great under Win XP. It will not install under vista. And yes, the machine has a PCMCIA slot! I think that the driver and card are not installing due to a problem with the irq. Can anyone help me manually set the irq? When I install the card, my NIC goes down. I think that the internal nic and my sound card are conflicting.

Hey all,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FW. At first, the only problem I had was no bass. I could hear the tremble fine, but no bass at all. I started clicking around under some sound settings and no I have no music at all however, when I "test" the speakers, I hear the test noise going off.

How do I fix this? Thanks!

A:My laptop has sound but isn't playing music - help!

Tony, what are you using to play music and you can verify that NO mute feature is on, be it within the music player or the PC itself?
