Recorder Player Problems? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.
Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out, Brian.
What format are these videos in?
Not all cameras have a mic, and even of those that do audio is not always automatic, so if the mic was not enabled, that would explain the lack of audio here.
Can you look through the cam settings (in video mode) to make sure audio is on and recording (try playing back through the cam to see if you get sound back there too), then test again on the player and I think you'll find it works when set up properly prior to recording
If you play that same memory stick on a computer, do you get sound?
Okay when you pulled those up on the computer, what file format did they show? .mp4? .avi?
Which model panasonic do you have?
Okay were you able to find the file types?This is what your player will support:
MPEG2/ MP4/ Xvid/ MKV/JPEG/MPO(3D Photo)yes
Mass Strage - AAC/ ALAC/ DSD/ FLAC/ MP3/ WMA/ WAV
jpeg will not have audio,
mpeg *may*, but it depends on the specific format and codec used, if you can set the camera format to mpeg2 or mp4 it will likely work better.
You can also go into the player settings menu and run the software/firmware update then test again.
I'm sorry Brian, there are some inherent delays in the chat, but I believe the issue here is the file format above all else.
You should proceed with updating player and camera firmware. You may also want to try loading the video files to your computer, and accessing them through the network (dlna) function on the player to see if they will translate that way.
