Sound on video clip

I've taken quite a few video clips. One day it took wonderful clips then the next the sound was gone. I can't figure out what happened. There's just no sound whatsoever. Did I do something wrong or what? I used it just like usual.

No Sound on Video

Why not? It's a still camera that also happens to record short video clips. After all, a video clip is just a sequence of still images taken one after another quickly.
Sound is a totally different thing, requiring additional hardware such as microphone and speaker. If it did sound, would you expect it to do stereo? Would you expect high-fidelity four-channel sound?

Running two cerwin vega ntense 252's off a pyle pro pta3000 amp and it sounds extremely muddy. Lines signals are clipping and stressing the sound. What's the best fix with still getting a high volume...

I wonder if all the clipping and stressing hasn't taken out the tweeters. They hate DC and square waves. Turn the gain down so you don't have clipping and stressing.

No sound on video clips


On most digital cameras of this variety (but not all), the video recording is more of an add-on feature and not its main function. The video clip is actually a series of still pictures taken continuously to give semblance of video. For this reason the video clips is a couple of seconds at most. In the same token, there is no feature for audio recording (no mic, no electronics) hence the playback is absent of sound.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Sound Problem when recording

Your digital camera is not a professional recording device. A live gig, especially indoors, or if you're close to the stage, means very high decibels, and you need something more serious if you really want to hear it later. You should get a recording device that can tune to different sensitivities. My old mini disc was great for this before it died. You also need a decent mic. Better luck next time! who was performing btw?
