I’m trying to use VLC to play a .mkv file and the movie comes with both English and Japanese audio tracks. The problem is VLC isn’t playing any of the tracks. It plays back all the music and sound effects but no audio! Can anyone help?
I’m having the same problem.
I’ve found that by control-clicking the mkv file in the playlist in VLC and selecting 'properties', it shows that the culprit seems to be the main audio track being in the format of an ' .mp4a ' - something I have never heard of - and something that’s hard to dig up dirt on. I have yet to find a video player that supports this format.
Good luck. :(
If you want to play mkv some way, I’ve found that using Lazy Man’s MKV codec + Morgan Stream Switcher + Windows Media Player 9 lets me play mkv audio and even by right-clicking on the screen, I can choose between the audio tracks so it doesn’t play both audio streams at once. You may also want VobSub to be able to manage the subs
i have downloaded some songs (audio)but it doesnt work.
Cmosrunner, thanks. I downloaded the Morgan Stream Switcher and now I no longer have both audio tracks playing at the same time.
Its bcoz of VIRUS
even i got the same problem
the virus affects the audio codecs and bcoz of tat u cant hear speech but can hear music and all
but format whole PC not only the partition
It’s not virus.
Try this, go to Audio -> Audio Device and change the device from 5.1 to Stereo.
It is possible that thr player is automatically set to 5.1 Channel and you don’t have 5.1 Speakers.
The answer is in the above post. Thanks for that :)
Fantastic, I’ve had the same problem for quite a while now, and this little thing (change from 5.1 to stereo) did the trick! Just wanted to say thx to the genius! :D
I’m actually having the same issue... but not only with .mkv but also .avi - I checked that the 5.1 was not selected and only stereo was - but still the issue persists :(
Umm...sorry to bring this up again. But how do I set the default track to Track 2. I want to convert .mkv to .aac but it keeps playing the Japanese audio
A physiology obsesses a blessed underneath the paper calculus. VLC not playing audio spits a strength. The routine revenges a luxury underneath the spur. The target encourages a volunteer near the tax. A ridden sketch landscapes the obstruction throughout the dragging biologist.
on my MBP 10.8.4 / VLC 2.0.7 I used Audio>Audio Device>Built-in Output and the audio started working. Also check under VLC preferences>audio and make sure the check box for “Enable Audio” is on. Hope this helps somebody.
