VLC Audio

Hi there

Shot an interview with nano set to MXF (first time not QT) as the editor was using Avid. Shot 50Mbps LongGOP 1080/60i MXF
All fine no problems with Avid.Just at home on my Mac down loaded to desktop it plays with VLC player,lastest version.. but no audio.. just a sec of distorted.

Why would that be.. audio fine on the avid ..

Thanks

Re: VLC Audio

Dear Robin,

Could you please provide the VLC version number?

Since it plays fine on Avid, and probably plays fine in the nanoFlash, I assume that this is a VLC problem.

The VLC Media Player is updated quite frequently.

Re: VLC Audio

I'm on a PC.
VLC plays MXF files fine (video & audio) on the PC.
However I noticed the VLC was unable to play audio when I tried a MOV (@50mbs), but the video was fine.

VLC V1.1.7

Re: VLC Audio

Hello Robin,

For Playing MXF file on the Mac, Sony XDCAM Transfer is a much Better tool.

Re: VLC Audio

VLC seems to have revisions that play the audio from MXF files for about one second. If the time line is clicked during playback, it's the same thing . So, the audio is clearly there. I'm currently testing with 1.1.5 on WinXP SP2 and 1.1.7 on Max OSX 10.6.7, and both have the audio problem.

Re: VLC Audio

I have the same problem with version 1.1.8. Earlier versions seem unable to play 60p footage. So I'm watching this thread with considerable interest!

Re: VLC Audio

Hello Robin,

We have not tried this on a System that does not Have Final Cut Pro Installed,

But since it is a standalone Program everything should work except for the Export to Final Cut Pro function,

As for the Links You do have to register, then you can download.

Hope That Helps

Re: VLC Audio

Thanks Andy

The site doesnt seem to open properly.. many box,s with a little blue question mark.. not sure where I have to register.. dont have any Sony products except for digibeta camera from way back..

Would be simpler if the VLC would just play sound :)

Re: VLC Audio

Are you, per chance, using Safari?

When I tried to download it with Safari on the Mac, I ran into the same exact problems you did. Site behaved very badly and it was impossible to ever get the file to download. Today I tried again after seeing Andy's message about just needing to join (I was already a member from a previous time), since I figured he tried again and verified it worked.

When it again didn't work (same missing pictures and generally messed up site response), I tried downloading it using the Chrome browser, and everything worked exactly as expected, and I grabbed the latest version. I didn't try with Firefox, but I bet that will work too.

YMMV

Billy
