Window's Live Movie Maker - No Audio RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a problem with no audio in Window's Live Movie Maker and despite trying numerous fixes I still cannot get it to work. If I import an .AVI file the Video plays fine but no sound. If I play the same .AVI in Windows Media Player both the sound and video work fine. Next I tried to add an audio track (.MP3 and .WAV) to a video and again I cannot get any sound. Again the same audio files play without issue in Media Player. I checked and tried the following things and nothing has solved the problem:

    • Checked the laptop sound is not muted
    • Checked the application specific volume is switched up
    • Checked the balance between audio and video is set to halfway
    • Checked that the audio track is showing in the timeline correctly
    • Tried removing all CODECs and reinstalling
    • Tried completely reinstalling Windows Live
    • Tried running application repair

    If I convert .AVI file to .WMV then the audio does start to work. However, I still cannot seem to add any audio tracks (.WAV or .MP3) over it.

    Does anyone have any ideas please? I'm running Windows 7 / Windows Live Movie Maker 2011 (15.4.3508.1109)
