Hi,
I have already made this post but it has been taken down. I haven't gotten an answer. I am trying to watch True Blood but it has no audio. It is only True Blood that has no audio. I have Microsoft Windows 7 using Chrome. I have downloaded ICQ like requested. I have done all the things in this thread suggested. Nothing else that I watch whether they are TV or movies is without the audio. Please let me know what to do. I would greatly appreciate it. Oh, and please consider that I am not an IT person, consider me computer illiterate.

Elektromutant, i was recently watching those episodes and also had no audio. it wasnt just that season but a few others as well. it seemed the only ones with working audio were the ones posted most recently by "Method". i let the video download all the way, then right-click on the screen and save the file to your comp. make sure the file name ends with ".avi" and when played through windows media player it should work fine. best of luck.

Anyway AVG which I recommend to any of my customers has yet to say this is a virus or any sort of virus. I have been a computer tech for 15 years.


Agreed on Norton(Symantec) and McAfee(Now owned by Intel, maybe it will improve).....
However AVG and its "false positives" having fits with perfectly legitimate files like game .exe's (and I mean major games like FEAR), are the reason I dropped it after about 2-3 months. It also had fits with Project Torque, repeatedly crashing when the game was running.

I went from using paid AV programs like Trend Micro, Bit Defender, NOD32 and Kaspersky(in that order) to AVG Free, then quickly to Avast! Free which I am still using 4 years(or so) later. I left Kaspersky with 8 months left on my subscription.

Every one I have used is prone to false positives. But for a free A/V Avast! has been one of the best I've used, even compared to the paid ones. It's what I recommend and install when doing builds or reinstalling Windows for Friends/Family. The recent changes to Avast 5 have made the free registration even easier and more convenient.


On topic: I have AC3 filter installed and only occasionally have videos that have no sound or super slowed down sound(The Sorcerer's Apprentice for example) I just let them fully buffer then watch in VLC.

And I get my downloads of VLC from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ The actual site, from one of the mirrors listed.

Good point bob. VLC just works. No AC3filter needed.

But for other video players:
No sound, slow sound, and hanging sound and pausing video are all symptoms of the AC3filter not present or not working properly. You might try a different version of the AC3filter. Two versions are linked here in Step 1: viewtopic.php?p=41447#p41447

I don't watch these movies on the player...I don't even have the player downloaded on my computer because it tends to cause problems. I transfer the files with my PSP to my PS4 and watch them on my giant television. What do I do when the audio wont work there? It doesn't happen overly often, but it's annoying when it does and it tends to be that if I have no audio with a certain movie from one source, every other source of that movie produces the same issue.

Is there any hope for me?

It's a PS3 when I'm not paying attention to my typing and hit the wrong key. Sorry.

It could have been worse. At least I got the S instead of the A in PSP.

Hey,

1) So I am running Chrome on a Mac. The video plays, but there is no audio. I installed Perian, but still nothing.

2) Also, for some reason a white 'window'/block appears right in the middle of my computer screen and obstructs the video. This happens a few seconds after the video starts playing. The only way to get rid of it is to close the browser altogether.

I have no idea how to fix either of these two problems.

there's a fix for the white block/box somewhere on this forum.

and for audio, idk. Honestly, I'd just go with VLC if I were you.

I get sound with TV shows but not with the last 2 movies I have tried opening. If I still let it load and then save it and open it in VLC player will it work? Guess I'll try.

I have used icefilms for 8 months now with no problems until the last couple of weeks. I have Vista and have downloaded the ac 1.63 filter. Just today for example I downloaded Paranormal Activity 2 with no problem.
I also tried to download I Spit on your Grave and Chain Letter with no audio. I downloaded the VLC program and still no audio. This has just started in the last few weeks. This is just an example. It's been about 50/50
on TV shows and movies. I don't know what to try next. Should I have deleted the AC filter before trying the VLC or can they work together? Don't understand whats going on. I really love this site and use it alot but lately it's driving me crazy.

I have a similar issue. I have been having trouble getting audio on new movies for two part sources... I downloaded AC3 Filter but nothing. I first hear a loud CLICK noise and then the whole movie goes silent. I have been using icefilms for long time... I have no trouble with any of the TV shows or single part movies. For example, for the new movie Unstoppable, I get audio for the single file SD DVD Rip but not the two part R5... does it have to do with any of my AC3 settings? Please help!! It's much appreciated!

Hi! I downloaded the codecs pack so that I'd have audio power for episodes of House. It worked, but there is an annoying buzz, a scratching-popping sound, that distorts the purity of Dr. House's pronouncements on life and stuff. Did I download maybe the wrong thing? What the guff is the problem?
