Getting the audio from an avi file [SOLVED]

Getting the audio from an avi file [SOLVED]

Postby Exo » Wed Nov 10, 2010 10:46 pm

How would I get the audio from an avi file? The video plays back fine but I have no sound. Tried using the audio stream primitive and loading the avi file into that but it doesn't work.

Ideally there would be to mono outputs on the video stream primitive giving the audio for the video.

Cheers ;)

Aha I had the same question, answered in an Email by DSPR.

Apparently there is an undocumented feature where the audio from video files is played back automatically!

All you need is the synced audio playback dll from VLC, I don't know which one it is but there are all in this download:

un-zip these dlls into your Windows/System32 folder and it should work!

In this case the audio comes directly out of your default sound device in Windows, and not through the usual blue connectors. This is in order to keep the video and audio synced.

Got it now.......

Had to put the dlls in the Windows/SysWOW64 folder instead.

Cheers! ;)
