AVI file with sound in "Windows Media Audio V2" formatgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
I have some number of AVI files. Most of them have sound in MP3 format, and there is no problem to watch them. But a couple of them have sound in ôWindows Media Audio V2ö format, and there is no sound, even latest Windows Media Player plays without sound. I found just one movie editor that can play sound, it is not good for watching movie. So, question is how to play these movies with sound, or how to convert sound to MP3 format?

My question as well! I haven't found a codec that seems to do the trick yet...
-- Dawid Rojek-Szumanski (email@example.com), February 21, 2002.
Try this link, it may help: http://www.divx-digest.com/software/acemega_codec.html
-- Mr Fett (firstname.lastname@example.org), February 23, 2002.
I had the same problem: AVI playback but no sound. I have found the solution!
Download this codec pack: http://www.divx-digest.com/software/nimo_pack.html
Then install it selecting only the Audio Codecs. Now playback is fine, but to prevent this from happening again I have reencoded my video files to MP3 using Virtualdub.
Hope it helped!
-- Rybber (email@example.com), February 25, 2002.
I had exactly the same problem, took your advice and installed the audio codecs above - and tada the video works! Thanx for contributing such useful information!!!

For some reason I get a message from the Nimo bundle that the installation fails, and from the Ace bundle that it may destablize my system. I'm running XP, so that is likely the prolem. Any of you guys that had success run XP? And what is the solution?
-- Jason Riggs (email@example.com), March 09, 2002.
Hmm I am running XP and had no troubles. Nimo did say that several files failed to open, but i just clicked ignore and the install finished succesfully. Are you running XP PRO or HOme?
-- Kai-Yu Wai (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 09, 2002.
I have a Windows XP Professional and I didn't have any problems with nimos pack and it all work just fine FINNALY !!!!!!!!!!

btw, i'm running winme.
-- fadh diana (email@example.com), March 15, 2002.
The same problem stills occurs, even after having installed the NIMO codec (I have selected the "Windows Media Audio codec", I suppose the other ones are not necessary). I'm using Windows XP Pro. Please tell me how I have to fix this problem ! Thanks a lot. Stephane.
-- Stephane (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 15, 2002.
First I tried to install only the Windows Media Audio codec and nothing else, and that didnt work, so I tried again and this time I installed all the audio codecs. After that everything worked just fine, so try installing all the audio codecs in the package.
-- Christian (email@example.com), March 16, 2002.
hey, i FINALLY got it to work.. afterdloading the nimo pack and selecting all audio codecs, u gotta look 4 this 'tsunami filter pack' u can get it at divx-digest..
-- fadh diana (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 17, 2002.
Thank you Rybber!!! I just downloaded Back to the future on divx format and i had no audio! I followed your instructions and now all works!!!!! Sergio
-- Sergio (email@example.com), March 18, 2002.
Hi ; i tried to d/l the nino spftware but when i launched that failed because of "a incomplete file transfer or a file infected by a virus".

-- Nyquist (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 19, 2002.

This is just great!!! Thanks a lot!!! I'm running Windows XP (Home edition)... I downloaded tons and tons of codec programs but none of them worked. If you get an error message during the installation just click on "Ignore", run the "Windows Media Player" as you would normally do and that┤s it...
I really appreciate it!!!
-- Abe Godinez (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 27, 2002.
I have XP Pro and when trying to launch nimo.exe it just tells me that the download is incomplete or failed. Tried it twice and didn't help. Seems to be a CRC corruption. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

-- Charles (firstname.lastname@example.org), April 07, 2002.
Divx_Pioneer I got the same problem as you, I can download the nimo pack but when i try to install i get this:
>> NSIS ERROR
Installer verification failed
This could be the result of and incomplete download, a failing disk, or (possibly) corruption from a virus
You can try to force an install using the /NCRC command line(but is NOT recommended) >>
any help is welcome. I run winXP Pro. Looked everywhere for a possible other codex, but couldn't find.
-- zippy (email@example.com), April 07, 2002.
I had the same problem, go to http://www.divx- digest.com/software/tsunami_pack.html and download the tsunami pack. This will fix your .avi problem. The Nimo file is basically corrupt, and they havent fixed that yet.
-- Eric (firstname.lastname@example.org), April 07, 2002.
I can't download the file. The server can't seem to find it anymore :( If I provide you with ftp access, can someone upload it to me? :)
-- Melissa (email@example.com), April 09, 2002.
Well, i just dont want that stupid pack. i will never use any of the other codecs.

Nice one! Solved me problems, but which codec actually sorted the sound problem out - it wasn't the windows audio v2 codec (i installed that seperately and no change to the sound problem) so it must have been another one - the morgan splitter?
-- Bob (email@example.com), April 18, 2002.
Thanks...I hope everybody finds this solution. I have been looking for it for a long while.

I have been biting my lips with my inevitable fate of having to watch more than half of my episodes of kenshin in NO SOUND movie forms like moving comic books. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I am so happy that dl-ing that little pack and installing just the audio codecs solved all my problems.
-- John Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org), April 22, 2002.
Thanks. It worked like a charm. Rybber you just made my day.

The Codec worked for me as well under winxp just a slight bit of trouble writing some files. And having to ignore windows file protection errors, and not to mention having to ignore my computer freezing while I watched my anime movies.. Umm, other than those little annoyances, it workes great, oh wait, the volume is a bit low, but great otherwise. ;-)

For those people who install the "Windows Media Audio Codec" in the NIMO package, and still doesn't work. Try installing the "DivX ;-) Audio" because it shows up as "DivX v4.2 WMA Audio Codec" under audio codecs properties in windows.
-- Jim (email@example.com), June 08, 2002.
Dudes you cannot go around installing hacked codecs and expect Microsoft to support updates on those codecs. At least, I am not. I have the same problem with the Windows Media Audio codec V2, but I am not going to put a hacked codec in place of an official one. What I think we need is a utility to convert the audio codec in the AVI from this bad choice Windows Media Audio codec V2 to a good choice.
Anyone find anything like that?
-- A User (NA@NA.COM), June 08, 2002.
My god, it worked. Thanks to all who suggested installed all of the codecs in the Nemo pack and not just the Windows Media Audio codec. I was pulling my hair out trying to get the WMA codec to work, but apparently one of the other codecs (probably the Divx 4.2 WMA codec) is doing the job.
-- Dustin (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 09, 2002.
I can't believe that it really works (thanks a lot)

You know, I have this exact problem. Except, mine was originally an ASF file. SO then, I used ASFTOols to convert it to an AVI. However, it still had the sound problem. It still had WMV2 audio, however. I've been looking around for a "decompressor" for it, becuase VirtualDub says it can't find one. I have Nimo, Divx 5.01, Windows Media AUdio V1 and V2, but none of it works. COuld somebody tell me the proper decompressor or tell me a better ASF to AVI convertor?

First of all I'd like to thank Rybber for the nimo codec pack. Now I have a few avi movies that VirtualDub says it does not know the Audio stream compresson and returns 'Unknown(tag 2000)' I have only installed the nimo codec pack and still no sound. I'm running Windows2000 pro. Please post any suggestions you may have for this problem of mine. My thanks in advance. I will continue to search and will post the solution if I have one.
-- sslaynne (email@example.com), June 22, 2002.

->> Hi All <<-
For those who had or have problem with installer error, this can be due to:
Download not fully done Virus on your pc ( do a viruscheck )
But the Build 7 ( the latest official one, cos Build 8 is in beta stage) is working perfectly on all systems we tested with ( we = me and beta testers )
Do a full install but read the site for the comment on the warning ...
I hope this program did and will help you, i was working on the pack since last year and this is the result of a long history that one day will be logged on the sites ...
For those who dont know about Nimo Codec pack, here is the my sites:
So for any comments, let me know
All the best guys and cya laterz

-- Not Important (email@example.com), July 24, 2002.
this is in responce to all those who couldnt find the codec within minuites. Esp those more recently.
LEARN HOW TO USE SEARCH ENGINES.
God damn, i found the link to the nimo site by typing in
> 'windows media audio v2' codec
its not hard, this site also happened to be one of the sites that appeared in the list on the first page. Learn to search effectively on the web and you wont spend hours looking for shit.
for those who dont know how to find search engines, being the reason why you dont use them efficiently here are a few. Mind you everyone should already know these all.
www.yahoo.com www.altavista.com www.google.com (also yahoo, but who cares.) www.astalavista.com (not so legal stuff) www.warezcrawler.org (even more not legal stuff, also contains norp banners)
simple. Learn, ask questions, but if you do nothing in your life dont be a waste of my bandwidth on the net, i need it a lot more than you do cause i'm not chasing my tail looking for a codec that i'm already downloading after 5 mins of looking.

Scott, i did the exact same thing. Downloading the pack as im typing this, hope it works.
-- Tuukka (firstname.lastname@example.org), July 30, 2002.
I want to know, what codec this is looking for. I realize that this problem can be fixed with these codec packs, but what codec was used to encode these files (in virtualdub it says tag 0161).
What codec uses tag 161? Needless to say I'd like to punch the people in the balls that encode audio in their avi's with anything other than mp3. (Yeah, I noticed those hosed Kenshin episodes too.)
I've downloaded the divx4 codec just to see if it was divx wma audio, but the divx4 codec wasn't it either. GROWL.
If anyone can tell me what codec tag 161 is, please email me at email@example.com (I've searched the web for hours to no avail. I'd like to know how the hell you found the codec for this mysterious codec, Nimo.)
-- anonymous (firstname.lastname@example.org), August 04, 2002.
Hi I've tried with every codec but, it will _NOT_ work! Still it says that I don't have the codec installed and WMP wants to download it.
Please help me, but don't tell me to install NIMO or TSUNAMI, I've already tried those. Maybe I did it wrong? I just want to watch my 770 mb movie with sound!

I have tried downloading this off 3 separate internet sites and eveytime it stops at different incomplete sizes (512kb, 327kb) and says that it is done, but when I try to open it, it says its corrupted because it was incomplete. Im running on XP Home, why is this?!?!
-- Marius Menne (email@example.com), August 05, 2002.
The codec you're all looking for is
Divx ;-) Audio Compressor Version 4.02
It's in the Tsunami codec pack under Divx Audio Codec and/or Windows Media Audio 7.00.00.1956 the divx and wma codecs appear under audio codec properties with different names but are actually the same.
If somebody knows a setup program that solely installs this codec only, please let me know!
-- bobbb (firstname.lastname@example.org), August 10, 2002.
i have an answer come to this exact site http://www.divx-digest.com/software/nimo_pack.html thats the site to get ur sound but my problem i don't know if u guys can help see my problem is that i can't watch some anime that are compressed i;ve downloaded divx wat other must i download its compressed to a size like 8 mb or something or maybe 80mb i have other anime that work but the small ones don't work and also i have this other anime that lets me watch the first few mminutes of the episode then there becomes an error someone plz help me! mail me or answer back here PLZ HELP!OH YEAH the anime i'm watching is magic knights rayearth!
-- (email@example.com), August 10, 2002.
Apparently, the later versions of divx do not support wma, only mp3 sound. So if you install divx 3.11, your sound will play. You don't have to uninstall your version, just make sure not to replace files that are more up to date when installing 3.11. I'm sure there are more sophisticated ways to make the sound play, but this is the fastest method I know.
-- Suying (firstname.lastname@example.org), August 11, 2002.
The audio codec we're probably all talking about right now works fine with the latest divx (5.0.2). Make sure this is enabled in the View-> Options, Format tab of Windows Media Player 6.4. In my case it shows itself as the Default DirectSound Device in Properties, Advanced tab. By the way, use w2k sp3 instead of XP. I don't know exactly what Microsoft is trying to prove but they're not making it easier for us.
-- bobb (email@example.com), August 11, 2002.
Hey all I know is the V2 format works now and thats all I needed, so thanx a bunch. Nimo kicks ass!

Thanks! That Nimo packed worked! Funny thing is, I ran across that software a couple times before landing at this forum but I just ignored it without reading about it! It would've just slipped right passed me! Thanks again!
-- dan (email@example.com), September 12, 2002.
Problem1: Tried everything (Nimo, Tsunami with all the installations relevant to audio enabled). Still the audio didn't work.
Solution1: I had DivX ;) Audio installed, yet was wondering why it didn't work. I played with the audio codec settings a bit, and found out that although installed, this codec was NOT enabled by default. Using XP Pro may have caused this, since the driver was not WinXP-certified. After enabling it, the audio worked fine.
Problem2: These two codec packs remove the files they installed (and overwrite), so unless you have separate codecs installers, you'll be stuck with these packs and what they provide. (Can't uninstall, else you lose your other codecs that they've overwritten too)
Solution2: Install codecs individually as you need them. Most of the problems here are related with DivX ;) Audio Compressor 4.02 audio codec, which you can find separately here: http://www.divx-digest.tv/software/codec/divx_audio_402.zip
-- antares (firstname.lastname@example.org), September 13, 2002.
Why can't people just use MP3 audio! It's a standard that's been around for TEN YEARS! WMA is proprietary Micro$oft CRAP! Get a clue avi encoders. use mp3 or let someone else do it. if you can't do the job right, leave the shit alone!
-- WMA Hater (email@example.com), September 14, 2002.
The standalone Divx Audio codec you all are looking for with out downloading megs and megs from those codec packs is on this page:
It's #5, the Divx Audio compressor. Enjoy.
-- Colin (firstname.lastname@example.org), September 21, 2002.
Nice one Colin ;) The Nimo Pack make my WMP crash, and the Tsunami made my WMP unable to "seek" an intermediate position in the video (it always restarted the video from the beginning). That's the "quite" definitive solution. I said "quite" 'cos when I "jump" in the middle of a film I get the right video, but the audio starts again from the beginning... :\ Anyway that's enough for seeing some Divx-es :)
TNX a lot

well...I spent days searching for this codec for wma v2 but never found it untill i stumbled across this forum...now everything works but I am still anoyed why some people would use this format for encoding thanx :-)

i feel stupid and hlpless, but hey, everyone has to start sumwhere rite. <<
-- Matt (email@example.com), October 02, 2002.
I tried Nimo, installed all audio codecs and it works fine with XP Pro. But my friend had the same problem some time ago, he installed Nimo codec pack and it was more destructive than useful. He had to re-install XP! So be carefull.
-- Tom (firstname.lastname@example.org), October 02, 2002.
hmmm i think people use this format coz i think they used the divx 3.11 alpha ... and like if you juz download this divx version for sure it'll solve all ya problems ...
-- jaypeety (email@example.com), October 04, 2002.
This page would be much easier to read if the Nimo back creators or whoever wouldn't pollute it with their fake "thank you" messages. It's pretty damn obvious they're fake.
After reading all the "thank yous" I certainly won't install the Nimo or whatever Tsunami packs because they are surely full of viruses and spyware.
-- Andrew (firstname.lastname@example.org), October 06, 2002.

Thank you, DivX gurus :)

NIMO SUCKS SERIOUSLY!!!
-- Johnny (firstname.lastname@example.org), October 08, 2002.
I think you can unistall NIMO to solve your problem. First time I selected FULL install. Then everything didn't work. So I uninstall it and install again with just select audio. Finally IT WORKS GOOD!!!

Thanx alot for the help! Much appreciated!
-- John (firstname.lastname@example.org), October 16, 2002.
In case anybody still looking, tag 0161 in virtualdub is for the divx ;-) audio compressor. i found the divx 3.11 codec, installed it, and yea, there was sound. anyway, here's the article if anybody wants to read it:
and if you dont want to read and just download:
then click where it says divx 3.11 alpha, unzip the file, and run register_divx.exe
i'll answer email if you put "audio help" or something descriptive in the subject

I think it really sucks that u cant trust half the things u read on the internet. I have this problem too, same as all of you did/have and i want to find the best solution to solve the problem. Im not going to install anything just yet because i paid a alot of money for this machine and i actually care if i corrupt it unlike some of you who just jumped in at the first answer u saw. I took everyones answers and opinions in here and also the websites of the posters and i will research every single last detail including spyware,decoders,decompressors, viruses and the exact codec (s) responsible. I will try the safest options first with nimo being the last resort. I do believe it probably works but I do also believe its packed with cydoor/spyware and god knows what else. If a file converter doesnt work then ill go download nimo at an internet cafe and if it works there ill download it here. Right now first priority would be to find out what kind of nasty things nimo attaches to its files...because im not going to risk a 2000.00 machine for the sake of a $20.00 video. I was wondering also if thoses of you who downloaded nimo UNSUCESSFULLY are behind a firewall or/and have ad- aware or simular programs installed. I have no idea if this would make a difference or not, im very new to the internet, im just curious.Id like to know what does what and why.

-- SqFKYo (Squall_fi@hotmail.com), November 30, 2002.
I went the tsunami route. and yes, there's some kind of adware in there. But it's not sophisticated - the free version of Zonealarm caught it trying to phone home. If you havn't got a firewall yet, just do a web search for "zonealarm". Tsunami is cool cos you get to select which codecs to install, and several offered were older than what I had with Win 2000 Pro / WMP7.
BTW to check installed codecs and versions under W2000 you go: Settings -> Control Panel -> Admin Tasks -> Computer Management -> System Info -> Components -> Audio (or Video) Codecs. Hope this helps someone, somewhere.
-- duncan (email@example.com), December 05, 2002.
I finally found the solution for Windows Media Audio V2. My post is long but is worthy. You don't need to install Nimo and other software which force you to use their spyware! You have to replace a file named msaud32.acm in your windows\system\ folder with the following file. Although it may be the same version as your file (7.00.00.1954) the file is hacked and works for AVI. Copy everything below this line to an empty TXT file opened in WordPad (not in Notepad). Then save the file (as a text file) and rename it WMA.UUE, then open it with WinZip and extract the file. No restart is needed for the change to work. You can keep your original file renaming it, if you want to be able to restore the system later (although you won't want).
Note: The file can not fit on this server but my full post is currently available at http://www.moviecodec.com/mb/topic287.shtml

I guess I'll be the next one on the line who has to thank you man. It really works. And It looks like you've helped to a lot of people. Take care. Nimo Lite Pack is absolutely enought.
-- Vesso Velev (firstname.lastname@example.org), December 16, 2002.
If you said the above to me, I would add that you do not have to install Nimo at all and that's the difference.
-- A (JDTUIJNRNBGZ@spammotel.com), December 17, 2002.
I had the same problem under Windows XP, and Nimo pack refused to install. I installed "divx 3.11 alpha" and it now works. Surprising, as the video in my file was divx 5.

I found just reinstalling the original DivX 3.11alpha codec fixed the no sound problem with the WMAudio V2. This codec is sometimes missing from later releases. Get it here:
You may also find the codec within your DivX AC3 file.
-- Monz (email@example.com), July 21, 2003.
Go to: http://www.divx-digest.com/software/divxcodec.html and install "divx audio compressor" (unzip it, right-click the .inf file and choose Install).
That's all, nothing else's needed.
-- Snifer (firstname.lastname@example.org), July 25, 2003.
The divx audio compressor is the one that works, and does not cause any harm to your system. Do not install nimo unless as a last resort, as nimo has been known to crash many systems
