Thread: Loss of sound on DVD

  1. Default Loss of sound on DVD

    Why is it, that on the very odd occasion when a DVD that I have burned is played on an old player or one using a faulty scart lead, the sound which was recorded using an external camera mic is lost whilst the rest is fine?

    All the sound in Final Cut is correct whether imported for dubbing or original. It is all exported & compressed for DVD together so why the disparity in playback? This is very rare but it bugs me, can anyone explain it?

    Are the DVDs 5:1 surround sound some old DVD players can't cope with that. There is also a format problem with some old DVD players, they only recognise PCM and can't cope with mp3 or AC3 etc.

    Just a guess.

    Surely you answered your own question haven't you?

    It only goes bad when you play it on an old DvD player or one with a faulty scart lead?????

    I suspect the clue's in the question then. The first few generations of DVD player would not play DVD-Rs at all and if the scart lead is faulty, well, what would you expect?

    The question wasn't why is there a fault on old DVD players. The question is why is always the line mic recording that is lost as apposed to the on-board mic or dubbed audio?
    Sorry if I didn't make it clear.

    OK, possibly the two sounds are on different tracks in the sterao soundtrack. i.e. internal mic on the left channel and external mic on the right channel.

    Perhaps you are simply losing one channel.

    Just guessing/ thinking out loud.
