I'm not sure what you're looking for... However, this might help.

For some audio capture and lots of audio editing, I use Audacity, an open source software package (google 'Audacity' to find it). Once I've created what I want, I save it as a .wav file and load it into an audio track on the timeline. I also use the tools built into MSP for a lot of my audio work.

For background music, I've bought a bunch of the SmartSound disks that will load into MSP 8 (or accessed in their SonicFire Pro software). MSP comes with a sampler (Full Spectrum 22k) of SmartSound music accessible under "Auto Music", which you can get to by right-clicking somewhere in the timeline.

Hi dabear,

I use SonicFire Pro, and like it and the SmartSound Strata Series. There's also Digital Juice's Stack Traxx.

I don't use anything but what came on the PC, and/or what a program (VS, MSP,) might install. I refuse to use codec packs, too risky.

I don't know what your origins are, but some MP3 files are real pain, because they are not true audio files, but are video files without the video. Some editors think the video is there and continue to look for that video.

One other audio problem cause would be Dolby, where you don't have the Dolby audio codec. Since Dolby is a fee-based product, if you don't have a product that includes Dolby, which there are various ones, than you can't hear it.

Are you able to see any audio information in the properties of those clips? That may give you some clue as to what codec was used.

yeah as you said mp3 123kbs audio with the video.

I got a video codec pack long time ago that would play all the files audio also. Now it's like I use real player to watch movies but I find myself opening other media players just to watch/hear media.

I don't know the name of the codec pack i had but it would open a red and blue box at the task bar near the pc clock then close the 2 boxes when media was closed.

Im looking for something like that.

I've found a couple of players that will play just about anything (without installing a bunch of codecs).

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema Edition - is very similar to the v6.x series of Windows Media Player.

VLC (from videolan.org) is another good one. I also use it to hook directly to the video streams from some of my IP-based webcams - and it seems to play just about anything. This one is also cross-platform (I have native versions for my Linux, Windows and Mac computers).

I hope this helps...
