Hmm... what are the exact specifications of your source file?
A screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
Also, see if the information in any of these helps

And a screenshot of my export settings:
(No source = "Quelle" because I didn't import a video to make the screenshot!)
I hope it's no problem that it is in German .
I just tried out to import the exported video again into PrE editor. There it is played normally.
Media Info seems to indicate that this video is using a standard AVC codec. If so, you're all so. If it's using a proprietary WinTV codec, you may have problems.
What is the suffix of this video file?
After you've added this file to your Premiere Elements timeline, what project settings are listed under the Edit menu?
Also, after you've added the file, does the program "conform" the audio and video (as indicated along the bottom of the program)? If so, wait for it to complete its conforming before you do any editing or outputting.
Finally, make sure you have the latest version of Quicktime, per the program's requirements.
Your WinTV-HVR-5500-HD is said to come with software which includes a H.264 video decoder and AC3 audio decorder. Are you using this software or another?
The H.264 would be consistent with your Video information but your Audio seems to show MP2 audio, not AC3 which is typically associated with Dolby Digital.
The video appears to be 1280 x 720 @ 50 progressive frames per second. What is the file extension?
What are you or the project setting as your Premiere Elements 11 Windows project preset? If you do not know, please check the project's Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and its Editing Mode, Timebase, and Frame Size.
For that video, the project preset in the new project dialog should be in your case:
AVCHD LITE 720p50
If the program is not setting that for you automatically after the file is dragged to the Timeline as the first drag, then you start a new project, go to File/New/Project and set that project preset yourself.
Are the complete video and audio being seen and heard when you are playing back that rendered Timeline content in the Edit Mode Monitor before the export?
The next major step is the export. What are the details of your export which you describe as AVCHD. Would that be Publish+Share/Computer/AVCHD and then what are the export settings under the Advanced Button/Video Tab of the preset selected?
Let us start here and see where your details take us to resolve the issue.
Add On...I did not see SG's post and notice that you included export settings at the bottom of your MediaInfo readout until after I submitted the above post.
Are you saying that your export is Publish+Share/Computer/AVCHD with the preset = MP4 - H.264 1920 x 1080p25?
More likely the project preset should be for Flip video.
But either is worth a try.
Could you reconsider your latest post?
As far as I can determine Asembler1387900 is in a PAL setup and, unlike NTSC, there is no FLIP choice in the project presets.
Flip camcorders are 30 fps. I don't know that there is a separate PAL and NTSC version of the camcorder.
I've just seen the program automatically default to 1280x720 Flip settings when a non-standard AVC codec is used. So it's worth throwing into the ring if all else fails.
The problem is solved.
While experimenting with different export settings i found a working solution:
- changing the PAL/NTSC settings from "automatic" to "PAL"
Thanks for all the replies
That was great news that you have resolved your issue with some export settings adjustments. Good work.
Thanks for the follow up since it will benefit those in similar situations looking for answers.
But keep in mind what I typically write "Problems with the same symptoms can (often do) have different causes."
