No audio when converting .mp4 to iPod

Postby noahsmybro » 04 Mar 2011, 23:48

I'm trying to convert an .mp4 video to a 4:3 iPod-playable file. Each time I attempt the conversion the resulting file has no audio at all.

If I try to play the original .mp4 in iTunes the file plays fine. If I try to sync the original file to the iPod then iTunes says that file can't be played on an iPod.

Prior to today I had an older copy of QMC installed - version 4.0.0.2. As an attempt to solve the issue I installed version 4.5.0.0 this afternoon. During the install I was prompted to install FFMPEG. I declined that, as it was already installed. Should I have let it reinstall?

If I try to get the info of the original file, I see this error:
QMC-FileInfo_error.png
QMC-FileInfo_error.png (14.24 KiB) Viewed 8131 times


Once I acknowledge the error, I see this:

So I'm not sure how to solve the problem of the missing audio, and then I don't know how to fix the 'file info' error, or if I should even worry about that.

I found an old thread here, from before there was a built-in iPod profile, that http://www.cocoonsoftware.com/paypaldonate-us.htm using Expert Mode and setting things to convert to a .mov file. I tried that, but saw the same result.

Could the audio problem be due to the fact that the file is already beginning life as an .mp4?

Thanks,
Steve

Hello,
begin in first please:
uninstall all version and reinstall the latest version.
We must accept the conditions else the FFmpeg files are not installed.

Check and come back with your question if the problem is not resolved..

Have a nice day.

Re: No audio when converting .mp4 to iPod

Postby noahsmybro » 07 Mar 2011, 23:26

OK -

I've uninstalled the previous version of QMC. Uninstalled FFPLAY.

Next I reinstalled QMC. When I launched QMC it prompted me to download and install FFMPEG, which I did.

I then tried again to convert the mp4 file to an iPod mp4, and see the exact same results - no sound. Trying to obtain info about the file gives me the same results as in my earlier post.

I'm guessing the problem has to do with the original file, but I don't know how to confirm or pursue that.

Thanks for any help.

Not sure what you want - as I wrote above, if I try to right-click to retrieve info on the file (or use the 'i' button) an error pops-up, and then I see what looks like the full man entry for ffmpeg.

Taken from Windows 7 File Properties:
The file is an *.mp4.
1:24:18 (h:m:s)
1280x720

Data Rate: 1020kbps
Total bitrate: 1178kbps
Frame rate: 25 frames/second

Audio:
158kbps
6 channels
24khz sample rate

Protected: NO (according to Win 7 File explorer properties, anyway)

File size - 712Mb


From iTunes Properties:
MPEG-4 video file
712.4 mb
Bit Rate: 154kbps
Profile: Low Complexity
Channels: Multi
Total Bit Rate: 1150kbps
1280x720
Video Codec H.264


Don't know what it indicates, but 'FASM' is in the filename.

The original source file plays fine in iTunes and WMP. The converted file has no sound. From the above, I'm guessing this has something to do with the multiple audio channels - maybe the conversion is including a channel with nothing in it, rather than the channel with the sound? (Just a guess on my part, though.)

Thanks,
Steve

Hello,
after a long time to search, it is a problem with the codec AAC.
We work on a new version of QMC and we use the latest version of FFmpeg available.

We launch the new version in one or two month's.

Have a nice day.
