    Do you get audio if you download one of Apple's trailers? If so, then the issue is likely your file.

    But do Apple trailers have audio on your MBP? Do you have the same Quicktime codecs installed on your desktop and MBP?

    It sounds like a codec issue then. Can you tell us what the audio codec and bit rate are for the file that's giving you problems? TSmuxer should provide this info.

    Also, try opening the file in Plex to see if it has audio. It uses ffmpeg, which is the most codec-rich software for Macs.

    I had use PLex before to play that file. It was good. There was sound but i did not like the fact that i can move the time stream so remove it. Then i tried quick time and no sound.

    I was thinking of install Perian. Should i install?

    If you need to use Quicktime then Perian is your best bet (but still may not play - you just have to try it). There's also VLC and MPlayer Extended. Quicktime is pretty much junk when it comes to compatibility.

    I installed Perian and try other movie as well. The sound is fine for other movie. Only one file that i tried to play and we talk about is no sound. It is HD file.

    Thanks for your help up until now

    Give VLC or MPlayer Extended a try. They're both free and have pretty good codec support. Quicktime just isn't that great.

    I'd like to know what VLC Extended is too.

    As for your second question, it depends on which kind of Mac you have, and which version of the Mac OS you're running. If your Mac has a Core 2 Duo or newer processor inside and is running Leopard or Snow Leopard, it is able to run the 64-bit Intel Mac build. If it is Intel but older than Core 2 Duo, get the 32-bit Intel Mac build. If your Mac is NOT running Leopard or Snow Leopard, AND is not Intel, you'll want the Universal Binary build.

    I didn't say VLC Extended. I said VLC or MPlayer Extended. Two different apps.

    Either will work. The universal works on both PPC or Intel Macs as a 32 bit application, while the 64-bit app is only for Intel Macs. Personally, I'd use the 64-bit app.

    OP has a 13" MBP. It is C2D and has either Leo or SL on it.
