Thread: Converting VOB to DV from MiniDVD, lost the audio

  1. #1

    Default Converting VOB to DV from MiniDVD, lost the audio

    I have a Sony Handycam that records to MiniDVDs with no way to connect the camera direct to the PC.

    I am very new to capturing/editing video and I followed the instructions on this website listed under "Editing MPEG and other highly compressed video sources"

    What I did:
    1. Used VirtualDubMod to process a .VOB file into a .avi file using the panasonic dv codec
    2. Imported the resulting .avi file into an IMovie HD project on my Apple Powerbook.

    Things worked fine - I have video clips in IMovie that I can view and edit, but I lost the audio.

    Does anyone know why the audio was lost and how I can fix it?
    I only processed the .vob files, no others from the miniDVD's VIDEO_TS folder.

    Thanks .........

    Forgot to mention .............
    I did the VirtualDubMod stuff on a Windows XP machine as the Powerbook won't read miniDVDs. After I got the .avi file created I was able to go to Streams/StreamList/select the audio stream shown/Demux and created a .ac3 file which I could then open with WindowsMediaPlayer and listen to.
    So the audio is there, I just can't figure out how to get IMovie on my Powerbook to play it.

    You'll need an .ac3 filter / codec to get the audio to play on your imac. Can't help you with that I'm afraid.
