TheBenjaminBlogs: @guerillabill But I'm editing Avi not mp4, The mp4/mov work fine, its my
Avi that have no audio~
guerillabill: @deathbyillusion As mentioned in the video title and in the video, the fix
from Sony is for Sony Movie Studio 8, not Vegas Pro. The problem is with
the version of quicktime codec installed on your computer. Newer versions
of quicktime won't work with some older mp4/mov files. If you want an
easier fix, see my YouTube video, ''Solve Mp4 mov video problems using
this free Cineform converter'
guerillabill: @Rleeson85 That fix was for Sony Movie Studio 8. Sony apparently removed
the download so people wouldn't use it for Movie Studio 9, 10, or 11. If
you want an easier fix, see my YouTube video, ''Solve Mp4 mov video
problems using this free Cineform converter'
CinemaGB: Hey, I have the same problem with mp4 but it is the video that doesnt come
up, and the audio does. Any tips?
HolisticFutureTV: Hey Bill, thanks so much for your videos, they are by far the best
tutorials I've found. I've followed the guidance here and made the fix, the
only problem is that the audio renders out of sync. This seems to be a
common problem, any ideas? Thanks again!
Leon Lefebvre: I have the opposite problem
guerillabill: @xWTBG The problem is in the video file. Nothing you can do about it in
Sony Vegas. You could try using Cineform NeoScene to convert the mp4 to
avi. mp4 video doesn't really follow any standard format, and the required
quicktime codec doesn't do a good job decoding mp4 files that weren't
created by apple devices. To solve the problem, don't use video devices
that save in mp4 format.
guerillabill: @Leg3ndKilla687 Start by reinstalling MS Studio 9. That might resolve it.
If not, try installing the MS10 Platinum trial. That should install the
correct mov/mp4 codec. You can still use MS 9 after installing MS10 trial.
pandacityyy: @guerillabill Do you have a tip for pro?
Itunesbabe: a million thankyous, i've been using wmm because of this, now my vegas is
deathbyillusion: @guerillabill nevermind I found out that just installing QuickTime fixes
your mp4 problem in Sony Vegas and it works now. So if you guys are having
trouble here's your fix.
guerillabill: @TheNantucketSniper The problem is with the quicktime codec required to
view and edit mp4/mov videos. The codec from Apple isn't fully compatible
with all mp4/mov formats. The easy solution is to use the free converter I
show in my YouTube video, ''Solve Mp4 mov video problems using this free
fsaleh2011: @MeatStatus This only works for Studio 8 and 9. He is giving us free help.
James Pope Show: Thanks a bunch, got my files working, one thing worth noting, I'm workin'
with what looks like exactly what you're workin' with, (Windows 7, Sony
Vegas 9 Platinum) but in that folder where you paste the file to, I had a
lot more files, and one with the same name as the one you renamed, but when
I renamed mine, the audio went away, when I went back and changed it to
it's original name, everything was fine, that's all thank you again for the
help, real life saver.
Morphine77: You sir are amazing awesome. You just saved me hours and hours of tedious
repetitive unnecessary work and I can't thank you enough, thank you thank
you thank you.
MrBlackDQ: can somebody help me when i drag in music or a clip, i cant see any sound
waves. and i really need those!
guerillabill: @mybad67 Motion Jpeg is not avi. It is an older form of mp4 in an avi
wrapper. You can downloaded the free MPEG Streamclip from squared5 com and
render the video as an MP4, and Sony Vegas can open and edit the file.
guerillabill: @MrBlackDQ In most cases, mp4 and mov files work well in Sony Vegas Movie
Studio 10. However, if the video device you use records in a non standard
mp4/mov format, it is possible that the quicktime codec may not be able to
decode it. This is a problem with the itunes/quicktime codec, and not
Vegas. Try uninstalling quicktime, then installing an older version of
Quicktime. Quicktime 7.1.4 seems to work better.
guerillabill: @KingMuleRobba Quicktime 7.4 seems to work for a number of people.
guerillabill: @TheBenjaminBlogs Just because the video has an .avi extension, doesn't
make it avi. Many clips, especially those downloaded or from analog video
capture devices, have an avi extension in their file name, but are actually
mov/mp4 video files. You can use the free gspot codec detector to check the
clip to find out what it really is, and then find a codec that matches the
LocalDogRescue: This does not work for Sony Vegas 10c. As soon as you try to open a file in
Sony with the "new" qt7plug.dll in place the program shuts down.
alansmisclass: My Vegas shows the audio in the timeline and I see the sound waves. But
there is no sound when I play it. I downloaded this .dll as instructed, but
it makes no change to what my Vegas does. Still no sound with .mp4 files.
guerillabill: Tim, The newly updated quicktime is the problem. New versions of Quicktime
are not always compatible with mp4 / mov videos created by non apple
products. A sure sign of this is when you hear audio but see no video when
the video plays on the timeline. You can either uninstall the new quicktime
and reinstall an older version, or convert the video files to a different
format (avi or wmv)
guerillabill: @MrAntgvls If you deleted the plugin, it will still be on your computer in
the Windows recycle bin folder. Open that folder, and you can restore it
Hum Dec: @guerillabill Thanks so much for the quick reply. I uninstalled Quicktime,
is it required to run Vegas? Do you know if Vegas 11 has corrected this
problem? Thanks again.
ericjrobersonn: you're the man!
guerillabill: @Leg3ndKilla687 Blame it on the quicktime codec. If you have recently
updated itunes or quicktime on your computer, it can cause problems when
editing mov/mp4 files. Installing the latest version of Movie Studio
Platinum will install a better version of the codec, and usually fix the
guerillabill: @MewVampireNinja The problem is with the quicktime codec which is used to
view and edit mp4/mov videos. Try downloading the latest quicktime codec
from Apple and see if that solves the problem.
mybad67: @guerillabill it switched to a mp4 file, But there is no audio in mp4
format, The audio is there when the video is played in media player or any
other player (the old avi clip).. I give up. My gopro HD will be here today
and It wont be a problem anyways.(hopefully) Thanks for the suggestions
Αντώνης Γαβαλάς: how can i retrieve the old qt7plug.?? i deleted the old...vegas 10 does not
open. please help!!
Shiine™ Enterprise: Hi Bill. I have this problem with kodak zi8 mov/quicktime files- when I
load import them to movie studio, the audio seems 'blocked out' on the
timeline with a large white lined box- ie can't see the normal audio
signature. Is this the same problem you are detailing, and do you recommend
and editing software programs that are not going to have problems with
MewVampireNinja: @guerillabill i download the latest version of quicktime but it still isnt
blackriflex39: how do you get to sony support pqage i cant find it fliiiiip
guerillabill: @XXTeamCORE The problem is with the quicktime codec required to view and
edit mp4/mov videos. The codec from Apple isn't fully compatible with all
mp4/mov formats and is very CPU intensive which slows down preview
playback. The easy solution is to use the free converter I show in my
YouTube video, ''Solve Mp4 mov video problems using this free Cineform
XXTeamCORE: I can hear the audio perfect but the actual video is extremely laggy.
guerillabill: @humdec Quicktime is needed to view and edit mov/mp4 files. Newer versions
of quicktime are not compatible with older versions of mp4/mov file. So if
editing mov/mp4 files, you may want to install an older version of

Diamonddraw89: Hello again. I have a question about .avi. My Sony Vegas Movie Studio won't
play .avi files. I got it to work once before but I don't remember how. All
the tutorials say to download codecs, which include Xvid and Divx, which I
really despise. Lol. Is there a way I can get the .avi files to work in
Vegas a different way? Or are there other codecs that you would recommend
to fix it?
guerillabill: @TheNantucketSniper Sony removed the patch from their site, because it was
only for Movie Studio 8, and people were trying to use it on newer versions.
KingMuleRobba: I have the opposite problem: I can hear the audio but can't see the video.
When I try to put a .mp4 video file on a video-track it only shows me the
audio. There's no video at all. When I click on a .mp4 video file in the
explorer I see following information: Audio: 40 Kbit/s, 16.000Hz, Mono;
00:01:42:08; Fraunhofer HE-AAC When I right click on the file and scroll
down to Plug-In it say "Name: fhgaacplug2.dll" Is there any fix for this
MrFabbeh: i get audio but not picuture :/
guerillabill: I don't know if Sony offers a video codec package separately. But there's a
pretty good chance that if you download the free trial for Movie Studio 12
and install it, it will install the codecs needed.
MrFabbeh: @guerillabill just updated my quicktime so now its workd thank you
hbeezey: hm now i get exception errors when i try to import meh
guerillabill: @link9326 As mentioned in the above video and title, the patch is for Sony
Vegas Movie Studio 8 & 9, not Vegas Pro.
blackriflex39: @blackriflex39 nevermind im a dumbusss ..
vilicles: Worked perfectly. Thanks a bunch!
Ephinecko Films: Interesting... thanks for the information. Are there plug-ins I can
purchase, like a codec update pack, instead of purchasing a newer version
of studio or pro? Does vegas or another website provide this? Thanks again.
guerillabill: @HolisticFutureTV Mp4/mov files seem to cause all kinds of problems. But I
haven't run into audio rendering out of sync. I sometimes see audio of sync
in the preview window, but it clears up when I render. Could be related to
the demands rendering and previewing mp4/mov puts on the CPU and RAM,
especially if you have slower computer.
guerillabill: @ShottySniperz401 Yes, HD PVRs typically record small frame sizes at
reduced frame rates. That would explain the problem you are seeing.
