    When i record a video on my desire and then open it on my PC with VLC, i get no sound at all......? It has been like this since i rooted and using 2.2. Does anyone else have this issue? and more importantly how to fix it! :D


    Thanks

    Try using a different media player, i know vlc usually plays most everything but occasionally it comes across a file that wont play properly.
    Had it myself a few times & of all things it played with windows media player.

    Failing that it may just be a problem with the rom you are using

    Agree. WMP + K-lite full codec pack will play AMR encoded media. If that won't play it, something strange is occuring

    There was a post in the site news thread asking for guide applications so I applied... its not necessarily permanent. I think were on trial.

    Not sure for vlc. Never played videos from my phone on pc. All I can say is vlc has built in codes where as most others use external. Maybe there is a vlc update available?

    I live in Armley up near the park and golf course. You?

    Edit> Yeah I did really get 1855 On this ROM. It's not an average, it's a top score. I quite often get over 1800 and consistently over 1750

    I thought about applying & never got round to it, but was picked instead not complaining though.

    If you are using the latest version of vlc try using an earlier version as sometimes i have found older versions play files that the newer ones don't.

    Look here for older versions.

    I doubt I'd have been picked if I didn't apply.

    Thanks mate, i took same advice from someone on xda, i didn't have the latest installed, once i did that it worked flawlessly! also, in the old version of vlc that i was using, when i checked the fps i was seeing like 5 fps for my 720p recordings, but this new version its telling me that the same vids are like 22 fps.....!

    cheers guys
