    Squeeze Question

    When I convert a MPG file to a MOV file for import into MC, the file converts just fine except that the audio cuts off after 30 seconds...  Does anyone have any idea why this would be happining?

    Thanks in advance for any insight/knowledge you might be able to share with me on this...

    Camilo, a mov wrapper could be just about what so ever, maybe thats why there aren´t so many takers, maybe you want to evaluate what you are doing .

    Re: Squeeze Question

    This is driving me nuts...  I'm open to any suggestions.  I have some files that were given to me in the MPG format and I need to convert them to something I can import into MC6...  Any suggestions?

    THANKS!!!

    I bet you have some spooky audio codec into that wrapper but you have to give more info, run Mediainfo on it and paste the info here

    Re: Squeeze Question

    For the sake of getting my work done I used another program to convert the files and all is well.  Why in the heck Squeeze was cutting the audio off after 30 seconds is beyond me though.  No matter what I tried to convert the files to in Squeeze, the audio would cut off after exactly 30 seconds...  Very strange.. :-)

    Thanks for your offer to help!

    Flip it to an .mp4. That should work without issue.

    Larry:

    Thanks for the tip...  I actually did go with an mp4 extension, but had to use something other than Squeeze to get it to work.  For some reason no matter what I tried to convert to in Squeeze it cut the audio off after 30 seconds...  I am using Squeeze 8 BTW...  My system is busy importing the footage at the moment so all should be well now.  I just hate when I can't get something figgured out/resolved. :-)  When I convert the mpg files in the other program, a freeware program I downloaded, it works fine...

    Thanks again!

    Re: Squeeze Question

    Hi Camilo,

    if your mpeg file contained AC3 audio, then yes, this is a bug in Squeeze 8.1!
    I contacted Sorenson about this 30 seconds issue already on 6 March 2012.
    They reproduced and confirmed the bug!
    They also told me that this issue isn't present in Squeeze 8.1 pro and Squeeze 8.0.1,
    and adviced med to download and use 8.0.1 again.

    An extract of my conversation with Sebastian from Sorenson:

    When importing AC3 files in Squeeze and converting them to mp3, AC3, M4A, wma... it only plays 30 seconds. After that silence. This also happens with VOB files that have AC3 audio.

    Hi Wim,

    This appears to be an issue with the standard version of Squeeze 8.1. Let's have you uninstall 8.1 and downgrade to version 8.0.1, which should resolve the issue.

    Unfortunately this is a defect that we will need to fix. The pro version of 8.1 does not exhibit the same issue.

    Thank you
