I am also trying to make use of a video file that features a similar codec. I am running an updated version of Premiere Pro CS5.
Unfortunately the audio does not work. (Audio works fine from other video files.)
I have tried copying over the dll file too mentioned...and this also doesn't work. (I guess this is not relevant to Cs5)
The full details of the file are:
Codec: A52 Audio (aka AC3) (a52)
Sample Rate: 48000 Hz
Bitrate: 448 kb/s
Any clues? (The video plays perfectly in media player or DIVX player)
I've also been trying to convert the file with Virtual Dub...but I cannot figure out a file format that will work with Premiere Pro Cs5. I'll keep trying.
Any help much appreciated.
If Stan's suggestion does not work (it has for many, but not all), then I would look into ripping the Audio, say in Audition, Soundbooth or maybe the free Audacity, and then doing a Save_As a PCM/WAV file at 48KHz 16-bit, and Importing that into the Project.
Odd that this is the third post on A52 in the last 48 hours. Must be the phases of the Moon?
Thanks for the replies...your time given in helping is much appreciated! Thank you.
