  • Uploaded Video – Audio Issue

    Posted by Danielle Tillie on March 14, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    This is more for webmaster than anything else… but I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue as well. It seems that when I use my editing software (iMovie in my case) to add a music track to my video, the audio is sped up during playback after uploading. The music literally speeds up at random (and is painful to my musician’s ears) and the song finishes before the video is finished. This only happens if I physically add the music track, not when the music is recorded with the video.

    I am wondering if this is a problem with my software, perhaps I’m not using the correct format? Or perhaps my internet connection is causing upload issues? I actually take time to choose songs that I want to share with the SV community (my most recent one being Mike Stern – Leni’s Smile, which is FABULOUS), but this issue kind of ruins that effect. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cry.gif Any suggestions?

    I’ve had the same problem with some of my vids. It’s the AAC format. Webmaster told me it was something to do with the architecture of the format and to reformat the songs to mp3 and it would work. Guess what? Any songs purchased on iTunes are AAC and CANNOT be reformatted https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_evil.gif . The songs that worked, I noticed were ones I’d imported from CD’s. Those can be reformatted into mp3, I noticed. Now I don’t want to but songs on iTunes anymore and if I use an itunes purchased song, I’m going to have to play it REAL loud in the background. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_thumbdown.gif Sucky, huh? https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_rolleyes.gif Hope this helps!! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_geek.gif STUPID DRMS!!!!!

    Oh dear… but the most recent song I used was an mp3… https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_confused.gif The video is an m4v file, and I export it from iMovie into that format.

    i have the exact same problem. It only happens when I actually ‘add’ a track to the clips i use. The only thing I do now is just use the original music, it means that when I cut bits out I am cutting the music out too, but this does really annoy me.

    Hopefully someone will know the answer, as I would love to be able to sort it out too. (I also use iMovie)

    I’m using iMovie too. When I export it to my mobileMe, it’s fine, but on this site, not so much. Again, depends on the track.

    If your using imovie…. export your song from itunes as an MP3. That should fix it. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif

    I have this problem, too, and I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio. It’s also when I put on a music track. All my music is already in mp3. This is a frustrating problem…

    Hey,

    Im using Imovie, and I imported the songs as mp3. And the music was still funny. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_sad.gif

    I found a temporary solution to this problem while it’s being worked on! For all you iMovie users out there: there is a function with which you can record a voice-over onto your video. I have come to find out that if I use this feature to record a song as a voice-over for the video, the music is correct after upload. I am on a MacBook Pro and the built-in recording mic does just fine with recording a song playing from my computer speakers. I have to click "record voice-over" and then go into iTunes and press play on the song I want. After the song is over I stop the recording, trim the edges of the voice-over recording (to get rid of any clicking sounds at the beginning and extra stuff at the end), and drag the voice-over recording to where I want the song to begin in my video. It’s a few extra steps and it’s kind of a hassle, but hey, at least I’m not annoying anyone with spazzy music anymore! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_rolleyes.gif

    Has this issue been resolved? I am using a Macbook pro and imovie and uploaded a video but got the same thing and so now we’re messing around with different formats. Now I’m re-exporting the imovie to the original and going to reupload. I was just wondering if this issue was addressed as I assumed my first upload to SV had an upload error. I just switched from windows because I was having issues with converting my mp4 videos to wmv so I thought changing to a Mac would have made things easier- except now, its making things more complicated in a different way. I give up today! This has been my entire day. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_mad.gif
