When I try to play avi or mpg files on WMP I get a crackling type sound all the way through the video. The picture is fine & the proper sound still plays, but the crackling sound is over the top really loud.
I have tried installing K Lite Codec pack & have run Video Inspector & GSpot which both say I have the correct codecs installed.
Yeah I also have this problem. It only started recently, possibly when I installed some new codecs or a new program to play video. I find it mostly occurs on music videos which I get off mIRC, but it has also occurred in several episodes of cartoons tha I have ripped from DVD, so tha eliminates the internet as the offender. Guess we’ll just have to wait until someone smarter than us comes up with a solution.
Same Problem here! I had upgraded my RAM, and the sound card drivers on my PC before this problem started. I’ve tried rolling back the drivers, but to no avail the crackling in WMP is SO LOUD! YouTube sounds fine, but WMP is doesn’t play any media (audio or video) without the crackling... if anyone is reading this who knows what the issue may be- PLEASE HELP US!
Same issues, but one step more, when I try to move the video file elsewhere (ie. laptop, ipod or wii) the same crackling orrcurs. It’s like windows corrupts the file for all future use. Someone H E L P !
I had the same problem is it due to the torrent sound encoder attached to the file.
So when the video is played back the codec’s counter each other out, and you get this horrendous crackling noises, the best thing to do is download VIDEOPAD.
Bit of a pain but this will do the trick.
Here’s a technique to resolve the problem. I just had the problem myself, and though I’m not promising it will work for you, it certainly worked for me:
Go to “Play Speed Settings”, and set it to “Slow”. Then, while the sound is still playing, change it back to normal. The crackling should go away.
