Issue with no sound

Running VRD 4.21.1.655a on Win 7 Pro 64-bit with SP1

I've created two DVD containing multiple TV episodes. First disc with 4 episodes, second with 6 episodes. In both cases, the last episode did not play any sound. The mp2 on my hard disk when played in VRD or VLC media plays with sound.

I do believe the first disk with 4 episodes was created using version 652d, so this issue may have existed over the last few updates.

Any suggestions? TIA

Do you have the original files for the individual episodes? If so open them one by one and look at the program info. (Ctrl+L) Does that fourth one have a different audio type or multiple audio streams? Anything unique about it compared to the others?

Hi Dan,

I no longer have the four files from the fiest DVD. Of the 6 files on the second DVD, the first 5 files had for audio this:
Audio Stream: 1 (Primary) Codec : MPEG
MPEGLayer : Layer 2
Channels : 2.0
PES Stream Id : xC0
Bit rate : 128 Kbps
Sampling rate : 44100
Sample size : 16 bits

The sixth file had this:
Audio Stream: 1 (Primary) Codec : MPEG
MPEGLayer : Layer 2
Channels : 2.0
PES Stream Id : xC0
Bit rate : 192 Kbps
Sampling rate : 48000
Sample size : 16 bits

VRD did tell me it needed to do a minor recode due to Audio not being proper. Shouldn't it have adjusted for the difference?

TIA for the help.

That's probably it. The DVD code is a bit out of date and can miss some minor issues like this. I'll look into it, but in the mean time try saving the file using the standard Save routine and change the audio to 48KHz. That will make it match the other files and make it so you don't have this problem.

Thanks Dan. Just to clarify, if 5 files have audio with 44.1KHz and one has 48KHz. do I need to resave the 5 and modify them to 48KHz, or just the one and modify it to 44.1KHz?

They just all need to match. So use whatever is the simplest way to make them match.
