This is a strange one,
My current project is a video of the sights and attractions of four islands of Hawaii. I have added mp3's to the soundtrack and deleted the original audio from the video clips. Everything is working great except for one particular song. Tropical Lady by Kapena. Whenever I import this track into Premier elements and add it to the soundtrack, only the first 5 seconds or so plays, then nothing, as if its been muted. All other songs play fine. When I play this mp3 outside of Premier, in Winamp or WMP for example, the track plays fine. I have tried deleting the original file and re-downloading it, I have changed it to a different folder location, and I have tried changing the name of the file, all to no avail. I really like this track and the lyrics fit with this particular section of video better than any others I have planned to use but I can not seem to figure this one out.
I have opened the track up in the preview pane and can see that the first five seconds of the track have audio then it flatlines for the remaining 4 minutes. When i right click on the track in premier and select the "edit original" command it opens in winamp and plays fine in its entirety, but as soon as I add it to the project, it only plays the initial 5 seconds.
If anyone has any ideas on what I've done to this track or how to correct the problem please enlighten me.
I am using Premier Elements 3.0
