Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

High pitched noise with specific file formats (WMV and WMA)

Hi there,

This issue is ongoing for almost coupla years now and I have searched for a fix at many places.

I'll get straight to the problem, whenever I play any WMV and WMA files, only those files, I get high pitched noise that is intermittant throughout the song or the video. Other formats are playing fine.

I have Win xp pro sp2, 2gb ram, D945gcl mobo, 2 hard drives, SB Audigy Value (Onboard audio disabled).

I have tried updating codecs and drivers, reinstalling the OS after formatting the primary partition, disabled onboard audio and what not. No help, everyone I talk about this problem, asks me to try updating codecs and drivers, but problem persists. These files are playing fine on other computers (friends).

What more information do you guys would like? Do you guys think this can be solved?

Thanks and peace.
Om.

    Hi,



    Well, I guess it's not that simple. Because, with on board audio enabled, I still have the sample problem.



    I want to bring your attention to the point that the problem is only with those two formats.



    Any other thoughts friends?

Hi,
Make sure that your PC supports USB 2.0, which is high speed data interface. Look for any such option in BIOS settings of PC and if available, enable it. On systems which do not support USB 2.0 interface, the data transfer is very low. You may search google for your PC Specifications and USB Support available.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Cannot play WMV file


This is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. The most important feature of a WMV file is that its format allows large video files to be compressed, retaining the rich quality of the video. It is a file format developed to store video content in a compressed format, so that movies and other video programs can be viewed on a personal computer. These videos can be watched from the hard drive of your computer, or other media players. To play a WMV file, a set of codecs are required. A codec is a program that can easily read a file, creating video and audio formats from the provided data. WMV files may be played on Microsoft Windows Media Player and other media players as well. The latest version of WMV is WMV10.

MTS is a high-definition mpeg stream video format. It is commonly called AVCHD, which stands for Advanced Video Codec High Definition. Mts is based on the mpeg-2 transport stream and supports 720p and 1080i HD video formats. It is used by Sony, Cannon, Panasonic and other HD camcorders. Why do we convert mts to video
mts is a HD video format with high bitrates, and only a few players can play it well. This is why we have to convert mts/m2ts to formats like mp4, avi, wmv and flv most of the time. If you would love to enjoy your movies in mts/m2ts on your ipod or share it on youtube, you may need an mts converter, which can convert m2ts for you. This article will let you know how to convert m2ts/mts so they can be played or uploaded.
How to convert mts to avi, mp4, wmv and flv?
Download and install mts/m2ts converter on your PC. This is a step-to-step guide on how to convert m2ts on a popular Windows mts converter.

Step 2: Launch the m2ts/mts converter. Click "Add files" to browse your computer hard disc and add the .mts or .m2ts files you want to convert. Batch conversion supported by this m2ts converter, you can load several m2ts files at one time.
Step 3: Now you can select an output format for each video file and specify a directory on your computer for the output files. This mts converter supports comprehensive video formats, including avi, mpeg, wmv, mp4, mov, xvid, 3gp and flv.
Step 4 (optional): This m2ts converter can set the brightness, the contrast and the saturation of videos, crop, trim videos and even merge multiple files into one single file before the conversion.
Step 5: Click the "Start "button to start the mts conversion and all you have to do is to wait until the m2ts conversion is done.

Windows Media Player 11 recognizes and plays MPEG-4 just fine but WMM doesn't recognize them. I would like to import some MPEG-4 files into Movie Maker and work with them - is there a codecs or something that allows this?

I'm sure I can find a program to convert MP4 into a format MM will recognize but if possible I'd like to just skip the conversion step and work with MP4 directly in MM.

Thanks!====================================================
Movie Maker is not compatible with MP4 files...
best bet would be to convert them to .wmv.

The following freebie might be worth a try:

Format Factory
http://www.pcfreetime.com/

All to MP4 / 3GP / MPG / AVI / WMV / FLV / SWF.
All to MP3 / WMA / AMR / OGG / AAC / WAV.
All to JPG / BMP / PNG / TIF / ICO / GIF / TGA.


You need some software to convert the protected M4P music file to unprotected MP3, WAV etc first, then you can import the mp3 files into Windows Movie Maker as background music.
TuneClone is such a software to convert the M4P music file to MP3, WAV easily. You can click here to download TuneClone and convert them to MP3 files and then import the music files into Windows Movie Maker project.


TuneClone uses a virtual CD burning technology to simulate the burning and ripping process and can convert M4P files to MP3 without any CD-R disc and do this work quickly. TuneClone installs a virtual CD-RW, it helps you burn any unprotected or DRM protected M4P, M4a, WMA music files onto the virtual CD, rips tracks on the virtual CD, encodes tracks onto MP3, WAV or WMA music files. It can repeat this audio converting procedure until your whole music collection is done.
Since the virtual CD emulates your computer RAM and hard disk as erasable CD-RW drive (Virtual CD-RW), the converting speed is faster than any other m4p to mp3 conversion programs.

Windows Movie Maker is video creating/editing software that is included in recent versions of Microsoft Windows. It contains features such as effects, transitions, titles/credits, audio track, timeline narration, and Auto Movie. New effects and transitions can be made and existing ones can be modified using XML code.
