No audio with AVCHD (MTS) files in Windows Media Player 12...

I have a Canon HD camcorder. All my videos are on my hard drive. I just upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional. I can play the videos on Windows Media Player, but I am not getting any audio. I've looked around on the net, but I can't seem to find any helpful information regarding this issue. I assume it's an audio codec issue. I say that because when I play the movie file in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 9.0, I get audio just fine. Anyone have any ideas?

FWIW, I also installed Media Player Classic just to see and again, I'm not getting any audio with the movies either. Audio works fine for everything else (mp3s, internet audio, etc.). Not sure what this can be.

Get VLC.

Google it, every computer on earth should run VLC. You have found only one reason.

Re: No audio with AVCHD (MTS) files in Windows Media Player 12...

Deftones,

I'm having the same problem with a panasonic camera - avchd(lite) and MP12. Video plays but no sound.

When I tried VLC is was as jerky as a very jerky thing, but I stumbled across this and it seems to help for me. I can at least now play them in VLC.

In VLC,
Go to Tools > Preferences
In the lower left of the box click the checkbox �Show settings � All�
Then go to Input & Codecs > Other Codecs > FFmpeg and look for the option called �Skip the loop filter for H.264 decoding�
Change it from �none� to �all�
Restart VLC


Hope it helps even if just as an interim.

PS - if you do find a fix for MP12, can you let me know please - thanks. I'll do the same.


EDIT - I also found GOM player ( recommended from the broadcom site, which supply my laptops HD decoder (wasn't allowed to post the URL)) and it plays them OK as well. So its GOM for me or VLC both of which work.

I have the same problem using Sony HDR-NX70U camera files. MS Media player will play video but not PCM audio. I switched the camera to Dolby audio and these files will work with the media player.

I'm still looking for a solution to the PCM audio file problem. My other AVCHD MTS files work with these computers media player but not the ones from the new camera with PCM.

If you don't want to use VLC and continue ot use Windows Media Player/center as your main playback , then you definitely need to download Shark007 codecs

http://shark007.net/

Just follow the instructions and let the program set defaults. In my HTPC i have shark installed cause I use Windows Media Center as my playback program of choice since I also have My Movies installed as media manager and i like the interface, Anyhoo, hope this helps.
