No audio from digital camera movie downloads

  trafmon 22:23 13 Dec 2007

I used to be able to download files from my digital camera onto my PC, click on the bit of movie and automatically it would play with full sound and vision.

Now it will only show the vision, so sound. I believe this may have something to do with me downloading real player recently.

Anyone know how I can get the sound back?

uninstall realplayer and see what happens first, if its still the same it may be a codec issue...

Have you got any sound at all? Check 'Sound and Audio Devices' and make sure it is not muted. Worth a look.

Definately not mute problem, am listening happily to the radio as I type - I've tried downloading various codec applications without really knowing what I am doing, however will try uninstalling realplayer and see what happens!

No, uninstalling realplayer hasnt made a difference - still doesnt work. Now using windows media player as it used to, but no sound still.
Any other ideas?

No chance you've switched the Mic off on the camera?

No, files that used to play with sound are now without sound.

what application are you using to play the files?

Sorted it by downloading VLC Media player - yipee!
Thanks for the help everyone
