video, that's pretty good proof it's read the file OK.
The audio is apparently not being put into the mpg file. Look further upstream for the problem. For example, can you hear the audio when Windows Media Player plays the mpg file? If not, the audio is simply not there.
This is frustrating me. I am using Vegas Movie Studio + DVD 4.0a (Build 48) software with my DCR-SR100 HDD DV camcorder. When I use the .MPG file the sound is dropped or something.
What I am doing:
I download the .MPG file over to my desktop from my SR100,
Drag the file to the "Media Pool" in Vegas,
Insert media in the "video" line of the editing area,
Hit play and the movie plays but no sound...
No sound...does vegas not like .MPG files or what? Am I making some newb mistake??
Any help would be great on this problem. I want to use vegas to put the small clips/home videos into a more common format and reduce the video quality so that I can use it on YouTube or other websites. Or send them to family for their enjoyment.
Thanks in advance!!
Also was wondering why windows movie maker won't read .MPG. Any thoughts on that? Do I need some other codecs? If so, where do I get those?
