View Full Version : No sound on Ipod Movies

Dec 26, 2005, 10:51 AM
Hello, and I hope you all had a nice Crimbo!

I got an new Ipod for christmas, and its very very good. But, uploading video's to it, isn't the easiest thing to do is it? Seems you need a PhD to do so!

I've finally worked it out, and i've put a music video on it which I already had on my computer. I used Quicktime Pro 7.0.3.

I followed the instructions on the Quicktime Website, and it worked, but the video's don't have sound. They hd sound in their previous format, but on the ipod, and in its new format on the computer, it doesn't have sound.

In Quicktime, I went to export, and clicked on the movies to ipod thingy, and waited it for it to do its thing, and the I uploaded it to my ipod via itunes.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks a lot.

Try using an alternate conversion program such as iSquint (http://www.isquint.org/) or ffmpeg and see if that works. They have the added bonus of being much faster than using QTPro

A quick click on the link tells you that it is...

FFMPegX is free and works very well...Quicktime has some issues with Mpeg files and sound. I still haven't figured out why they haven't made Pro work with Mpegs yet, but that's one of the great mysteries of the century. :p

MeWiG is built off of the ffmpeg framework and works well on Windows. You can give it a shot.

I cant seem to get it working. I used the MeWIG one, and it encoded the file, and now its on my desktop, but now I cant get it into Itunes.

try a different file...maybe that file doesn't like you....
Do you get sound when listening to music?
Try one of the free video's itunes is offering and see if it plays so you know its not the ipod itself..
