    How to export HD files and play them on Western Digital HD Media PLayer?

    Igor Valentovitch Level 1

      Hi Folks,

       

      I'd need your help here. I shoot HD video in AVCHD with Canon HF200.

      My goal is to be able to export my edited footage with minimum quality loss and be able to play it on the well known Western Digital HD Media Player:

      http://www.wdc.com/en/products/Products.asp?DriveID=735

      The player supports the following formats for video:

       

      Video - AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), MPG/MPEG, VOB, MKV (h.264, x.264, AVC, MPEG1/2/4, VC-1), TS/TP/M2T (MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC-1), MP4/MOV (MPEG4, h.264), M2TS, WMV9

       

      Here is what I do:

       

      1. I convert the avchd files into .avi using  Cineform Prospect HD.

      2. Then I import and edit the footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CS3

      3. Finally I export the edited footage using the ' BD-h.264 ' codec in the 'Adobe Media Encoder'

      4. I end up with two files after the export: .M4V file (video) and .WAV file (sound).

      The WD HD Media Player plays 'black' screen while displaying a message 'no audio'.

       

      I guess the exported file is not fully supported by the WD player,

      Any ideas? How can I combine the two files into one and play it on the WD player?

      Maybe I'm not exporting it correctly?

       

      Please share your experience and help me out.

       

       

      Thanks
