My mpeg file only play audio without video


Hi.
Two different things can cause this to happen.

First, it could be that the video recording software has problems, and isn't allow it to record properly.

Second, and most likely, there is a codec issue going on.

I would try downloading a codec pack, this usually fixes problems like this.

I would get a codec pack called K=lite Codec Pack.

You can Google it, as it is the most popular codec pack on the internet.

I don't know what software you are using to play the video, nut if you go to videolan.org, and download their program, it is called VLC, this might fix your problem of no picture being shown with your videos.

It is a great program, it can play just about any type of video that you can imagine, even types you may not have ever heard of.

Oh, and best of all, it's FREE!!!


I hopre this helps you out, between the two things, it should get you going again.

Good luck to you, and have a nice day !

Tip

Enable Dreamscene


Windows Vista Ultimate has a great feature of putting video as your desktop background. A lot of windows XP and windows Vista (non ultimate) user wanted to do the same. Here is how it can be done using a free and popular software. VLC player.

To set and play a video as wallpaper in Windows XP, Windows Vista Home Premium, Home Basic, Business, Enterprise and Starter edition:
  1. Download and install VLC Player for Windows.
  2. Run VLC Media Player, go to Settings -> Preferences, expand Interface and click on wxWidgets. In the bottom right corner of “wxWidgets interface module” window, click on “Advanced options” to show advanced settings. Then uncheck the Taskbar check box in order to remove VLC Player title from the taskbar while the program is running. Check Systray icon if you want to enable Systray (system tray or notification area) icon instead.
  3. Next, expand Video -> Output Modules and then select Direct X. In bottom right corner of DirectX Video Output window, check the Advanced Options check box in order to see all the settings available. directx-video-output.jpg
  4. Check and tick the “Enable wallpaper mode” check box.
  5. Then, select Playlist and then check or tick the Repeat current item checkbox.
  6. Press “Save” button when done.
  7. Open and play any video that you would like to set as motion wallpaper in VLC Media Player.
  8. If the video hasn’t yet been set as desktop background, right click on the video and click on “Wallpaper”.
  9. The video or movie will be set as if it’s DreamScene motion desktop background wallpaper.
If you do not configure VLC Player to repeatedly play current media in loop, you can still do so after playing the video. Simply click on View then select Playlist. Highlight the video media content that is playing and click on Repeat One or Repeat All button as shown below to loop the video for non-stop video wallpaper.

Note that the video must be encoded in a video format supported by VLC Player such as MPEG, AVI, MP4, WMV, FLV (Flash Video) and etc. Else you will need to convert the video clip to the supported format.

did you use the divx codec or something else? More than likely you need to go and download the divx.com codex. What player are you using? Windows Media Player I am assuming?

Panasonic SDR-H40 shows files as mpg


mpg is Mpeg more than likely Mpeg 2 most commonly associated with DVD. Some new versions of Widows Media Players will play it some won't. The fast solution is a company called River Past has a video cleaner, it will convert your Mpg to a mov or avi or wmv. or a variety of formats, what ever you find useful. There maybe other similar products on the market for free check, but you need to convert that file.

How to change the recording video type to MPEG?

Mpeg format is very popular for its wide-ranged compatibility with video editor and media player, and its cross-platform neutral capability, meaning the mpeg format can be easily handled not only by Windows OS, but also on Mac. Mpeg is a compression codec used to reduce the space video files take up without severely compromising image quality. And MPEG-4 is the global multimedia standard, delivering professional-quality audio and video streams over a wide range of bandwidths, from cell phone to broadband and beyond.This could explain why so many people choose mpeg format for video editing purpose. It is also no surprise that people would ask about how to change the recording video type to MPEG format or how to convert mpeg to other formats.

Mpeg converter is born to solve the mpeg related conversion problem. Mpeg converter can convert almost all kind of video formats to MPEG file, such AVI, WMV, ASF, 3GP, MOV, VOB, MPG/MPEG2 and FLV (Flash Video), which could be converted/exported as avi, mpg, mp4 video formats for your later options, while keeping the original video quality. Mpeg converter can also extract audio track from those supported video to m4a, mp3, wav audio formats. besides, it is a powelful video editing tool too. Mpeg converter lets you trim any splendid clips or episodes of your favorite videos, crop the unwanted black edges of video, apply video effects, and capture pictures from your video.

i am sure this will be a total fresh experience for you, things will be easier if you follow the tutorial below:

step 1. Click here to download, install and then run Mpeg converter
