iMovie: Can't hear audio

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In imovie I cannot hear audio, but when i play the .mov file the audio works perfectly. Did i mistakenly push some sort of mute button in iMovie? Thanks

ya i tihnk you did hit a wonrg button... on the far right side of the timeline (make sure youre in that view mode) there are checkboxes by each of the tracks of audio... i bet the one with your audio (or the top one) is turned off.

I had the same issue and luck enough to figure it out. Drag the audio file you want to the entire iMovie area - the entire iMovie area will turn purple.  You can then move/push the beginning of the purple area along the iMovie to the section you want that audio to play.  The rest of that audio section will move along.  Good luck!

Hi ~

Can you tell me exactly how you solved the issue with the missing audio while it is importing into iMovie 11? I am importing some video from my old Sony camcorder (from Hi8 tapes) and tested a few clips that were imported. Each time I imported them I could hear them as they were imported. Then suddenly I could not hear the video anymore.


Not sure exactly what I did different. I did purchase a splitter adapter from my one audio RCA jack into to audio jacks. But I believe the audio worked a short after I set that up anyways. The only other thing I could think of doing was going into system preferences while it was in the progress of importing so I can set the screen saver to "never" so it wouldn't go to sleep in the middle of importing. I am not sure if either of those things caused the audio to no play during import. However, I can hear the audio after I imported it during playback.
