Please...will somebody check this WMV file

Hello,

I recently discovered that a short movie I have made and published on my website, plays back with faulty audio via my pc (so far I remember it was correct when I created and published it some time ago). It's a WMV version 9 video/audio-file including 5.1 surround sound.
When I play this file from the web, the only audio I hear is digital distortion with the original sound at the background (the video is okay). Strangely, when I change to volume-slider at the Windows Media Player console the volume isn't changing and the file plays at the same volume.

Can anybody check the file:

Note: the file is created with Vegas 4 on a Windows XP Home Edition pc, with a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz soundcard for playback.

Many thanks,

Peter Sieben

Plays OK on by Mac with WMP 9. Audio was fine. Have you tried reinstalling your player software?

Hi Jeff,

Thanx for your quick reply. I will try to re-install the player. I'm not sure if that's easy with XP as sometimes media parts of Windows are integrated in the OS that reinstalling is not als always possible (like DirectX).

Best of wishes

Peter

Could you try Windows media player?

How about your internet connection? So far I know my provider has a high quality connection to the world wide web.

Thank you guys.
I'll try to re-install the soundcard drivers and the Windows media player.

Greetings,

The version 7.1 player on my net PC had to download the audio codec but played fine after that. Nice piece of work.

I've done a re-installation of the TB soundcard drivers, DirectX 9b and an update/check for the Windows Media Player and all seems to work fine again.

Thanx,

Peter
