Thread: Sony Vegas 8 Avi Audio Problem

    Default Sony Vegas 8 Avi Audio Problem

    Im new here so sorry if im posting in the wrong place
    Sony vegas 8 doesnt seem to be playing back my audio from AVI files, i imported a clip into the timeline and it shows that the audio clip is there along with the video clip but the audio clip does not play.
    I also tried importing a mp3 into sony vegas to see if it was something to do with the sound but the mp3 plays perfectly, its just the audio on the AVI file.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Hi Rob,
    The problem in trying to help here is that there are about 800 different video file types that use the extension .avi. AVI is actually a wrapper or a protocol for packaging video files.
    Common highly compressed file types like MPEG4, H.264 and DivX and on and on use the extension .avi.
    If you "right click" on one of the files using Windows or even try finding the exact file propertied in Vegas you may discover the actual codec that created the file.
    It may be that Vegas does not have this codec or is using another codec to give it its best shot at handling the file.
    So first of all find out what codec was used to create the file.

    Note: Codec comes from enCOde and DECode. It is a program for creating and playing back video and audio files.

    It seems it is a codec problem. There can be many kinds of audio codec in the AVI format. To know what the audio codec in your AVI file, you need a third party software. You can try GSpot Codec Information Appliance. It is free. After that you can check if the audio codec in your AVI file is supported by Vegas. If it was proved not supported, you can consider converting your video file converted to the format Vegas supported.
