No AAC sound on MP4 files on VLC or Windows default apps. MPC HC is OK Empty No AAC sound on MP4 files on VLC or Windows default apps. MPC HC is OK

Post by gato_pirao on Tue Nov 17, 2020 4:37 pm

I am trying to play some MP4 files on my computer. I have several applications using the default windows 10 CODECS but with all of them I get the same result.
Example VLC, Windows Movies.
I can see the video but I get no sound. If I look at the Audio codec used in the MP4 files it is AAC LC

I installed K-lite and MPC-HC and the same file plays well within it. Video and Sound are OK in MPC HC, so I guess it's the default CODEC used by the other applications that is not working properly.
I would used MPC-HC but my problem is that I need to watch those videos within another application which includes other features and is the actual app that I use to download such videos.

I tried fiddling around with the Codec Tweak Tool but I didn't succeed to make the default windows apps use the KLite codecs.

Any help would be appreciated

VLC only uses its own internal codecs.
Movies&TV player only uses the Media Foundation codecs from Windows.
It is not possible to change which codecs they use.

Both should be able to play AAC. So I am not sure why they have issues. Maybe there is something wrong with those files. What information does MediaInfo show for the files?

Thanks for getting back to me.
The only thing that I am sure here is that the files are good. They play fine on another computer and they also play fine when played through MPC HC.
Media info below.

I was under the impression that VLC and Windows Movies would use the same Codecs since I get the same result on both. I have reinstalled VLC several times to no avail.
At some point I even manage to get MPC HC not to play sound either (which was exactly the opposite of what I was trying to achieve) but I never manage to get the other apps to play sound.

Can I force the other apps to play AAC using the K-lite Codecs? If the apps use different CODECs what happens after the CODEC? What is different between the VLC, Movies Codecs and the MPC HC codecs?

I disabled the MS DTV DVD audio decoder with the tweak tool and I dumped the file in GraphSutioNext and it now says that it will use the LAV audio decoder but I still don't get sound in Movies&TV or VLC.

Funny enough, I do get sound if playing the file with itunes. Crying or Very sad
What do iTunes and MPC HC do differently?

STOP the PRESSES!!!

So here is a very funny thing. I enabled Spatial Sound on my output and all of a sudden all applications started playing sound for those MP4 files.
How crazy is that? How do you explain it?

Spatial sound was off. I enabled Windows Sonic for headphones and it started working!

This thread in github made my day:

In the settings of VLC you can select which "output module" it uses for sound. Test the first three choices. Maybe one of them is not working properly.

MPC-HC uses DirectSound, which should be similar to the DirectX choice in VLC.
