Restore sound on EyeTV MPEG4 AVIs in QuickTime
Authored by: cortig on Dec 04, '06 12:22:10PM

Reading what's described here, it looks like the "EyeTV MPEG Support.component" is not installed in /Library/QuickTime
This QT codec is required to play the sound in EyeTV-generated AVI files for instance.

Restore sound on EyeTV MPEG4 AVIs in QuickTime

I should have been more clear...
EyeTV exports audio in a format that doesn't seem so universal. QT Player can only play the audio track if the "EyeTV MPEG Support.component" is properly installed and non-QT based players won;t be able to play them. Of course, transcoding the audio track to a more universal format will correct the issue.

Thinking about this, you're right. I was trying to play the movie on a different machine which doesn't have the eyeTV software installed. Still, how come Quicktime Player can't play the audio, but convert it to another format?
