When I create a video recording (MP4) in Premiere Elements 15, I do not get Audio/Sound when I try to play the video back on certain apps, such as Windows Media Player (which is an up-to-date version) and when I import it into my Video Editing software from Adobe.  Interestingly, if I just double-click on the file on my laptop, it will open up and play with audio in the Movies & TV default app on my Windows 10 laptop.  Any guidance on why audio won't play on some applications.

MP4 is a wrapper, what is inside YOUR wrapper - Exactly what is INSIDE the video you are editing?

It might have been easier to read these specs if you'd have just copied the text of the report rather than doing it as screen chapters.

 

That said, if what I'm reading is right, this is a 1280x720 video with 5.1 audio, a file format with very little support. Premiere Elements can edit 1920x1080 video with 5.1 audio, but not 1280x720 5.1. In fact, that's a pretty rare bird. I'm not sure what to recommend.

 

Have you tried editing it in Windows Video Editor? It may or may not work with this type of audio but it's worth a shot. Just locate the Video Editor app in Windows.

Thanks again.  I did try the Video Editor and no audio there either.

 

For what its worth, I created the video file from a new Webcam (Logitech c922)...I'm guessing it is creating it in the 'new bird' format adn there doesn't appear to be other options for me to select.  Perhaps I should go to Logitech with the question.  And perhaps if I had a more recent version of video editing software from Adobe it would work...but just seems strange that several apps are having issues, so I hate to make that investment not being certain.  

 

FYI only - I've pasted in the text version from MediaInfo in case you want to take a look.  Thanks again for the responses.

Frame rate mode : Variable

 

That MAY also be part of the problem

convert to constant frame rate with https://handbrake.fr/ open source transcoder/converter

 

When converting it MAY also help to use regular 2 channel stero as the output

Yes, there are indicators that it wasn't designed to be an editable video.

 

But have you tried editing it in Windows Video Editor yet? It may not be as powerful of Premiere Elements but it may be more versatile with video and audio formats. And it's free, so there's that.
