I'm a newbie with Premiere Elements. I am importing multiple file types to make a family year end video and 6 of the files don't have any sound track after importing. They are all .mpg video files. Other .mpg files that were shot directly before and after these files import correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have downloaded one of the files I am having trouble with.
Which version of the program are you usingon what operating system?
Open one of your problem MPEGs in the free download MediaInfo. In MediaInfo, set View to Text and paste the text of that report to this forum. With all of this information we'll be better able to help you.
This looks like a DVD file. An old one too, since it uses the 4:3 aspect ratio.
Or is this video by any chance from a JVC Everio camcorder?
Anyway, I tried importing the video file into Premiere Elements 2021 and it indeed imports without any sound -- and not even a sound track! So I'm not sure what's going on.
Though strangely when I ran the file through Handbrake and converted it to an MP4, it worked perfectly in the program.
So whatever is going on is apparently related to something in the formatting of the file itself.
I'd recommend you convert it to an MP4 using the free download Handbrake. That's the easiest solution.
Thanks for the help, that worked great. I'm not sure what it was filmed with, I got it from my son-in-law and I don;t remember what he was using back then. I just upgraded to Premiere Elements 2021 for my video editing software so I was worried when it wouldn't work with some of my files.
I figured there was a way to make it work and you came to my rescue.
