I've been having this video problem for about 7-8 months now and I can't figure out what the issue is. I'm starting to wonder if the problem is my interface... as there's no other logical explanation I can think of.


So... anybody here who has any type of Echo Audiofire... would you mind loading up a video in S1 and pressing play? Does the video play? And can you hear sound without having to extract the audio?


If anyone has an audiofire here i'd really really really appreciate if you could test this for me. Video has not been working since I switched to this interface.... however... I also did a few system upgrades around the same time so I'm having a tough time pinpointed what caused the issue. Video used to work perfectly with my old interface.

Thanks

I tried loading in the only video i have on my computer and i got no video. It's an .avi file and i can watch it in quick time with no issues, so not really sure what's up with that. maybe i'm doing something wrong but it seems it should be pretty staright forward..

Ok.. Update. I grabbed a video from youtube, an mp4 and dragged it into S1 with no issues. The Audiofire is all good on my end.

Good luck sorting this out CPhoenix

^yo thank you SO much for this info! I'm trying to single out the culprit.


Hopefully mt new system next week will fix it. If not... i'ma be looking at a new firewire card... maybe the 2 i've tried are busted or something.

Thanks again man.... this truly helps me troubleshoot my issue

Ya, no worries... but can i ask, how could it possibly be the interface? seems like if S1 was gonna take video the interface really has nothing to do with that except for playback of the audio. just a question..

Agreed. To the OP -- What kind of video are you trying to play?

Right-click on the video file and choose "Open with". It should show you the compatible player(s) you have installed.

It's possible you lost your original video player during an upgrade - or it simply needs reinstalling.

^any video. literally any and every single type of video.

No... i've reinstalled the latest version of quicktime several times.

This is a 7 month old problem, tech support hasn't been able to solve yet and is saying it sounds like a firewire issue at this point.

Up... my new system in my signature below still didn't solve the problem.

I'm going to grab a new firewire card first, and try to stick from the list Presonus recommends. Hoping this fixes the issue.

For what it's worth I've never really been able to work out the video in S1 2.5 64bit since it was added. Mine seems to play some videos but not all - some with audio, some without. All of them play in Quicktime directly so I'm not sure what the issue is.

I attributed this initially to the fact that I've got VLC with various other codecs installed on the machine and perhaps that was confusing the issue.

I recently however rebuilt one of my machines and took the opportunity to ensure that the only video player (and hopefully codecs) installed were the QuickTime ones however the problem persists.

Mostly if I have to compose to video I revert to using Pro Tools to get the basics and then bring things into S1 - not ideal but usable.

There is also the option of converting the file into one of the format that I know works using a video converter however this is often time consuming and usually I don't bother.

My 32 bit installation of S1 used to work without issues so it would appear to be something to do with the shim between the 64 bit S1 and 32 bit QT.

Be interested to see how it turns out for you.

Cheers,
Jason.

^question..... which formats work for you?

I honestly can't get any formats i've tried to work. I've tried almost all of them... mpeg, mp4, avi, mov. None work.


Just so you know my history on this issue (this issue goes back man).... at one time this actually did work. It was with Version 1 - 1.5. I had no problems. But I didn't use it much. Over time, I upgraded to v2, changed interfaces, and put my OS on an SSD. When I tried it again... it started acting up.. boh in 32bit mode and 64bit mode. Same exact issues. Since I had did so much to my system, I couldn't pinpoint what was going on. I tried putting S1 on a 7200rpm thinking it was the SSD... no luck. I disabled my extra video card and used only the mobo card (that it used to work on).. no luck. I built an entire new computer... no luck lol (i wanted the new computer anyway though thank god).

The only things I haven't tried are a new interface and a new firewire card. I also haven't tried putting my OS back on an HD and running it like that, which might actually be worth a shot come to think of it.


First the firewire card though.. i'll keep you guys posted.
I might try another video card too if i can grab one

If you're positive a FW card is the issue and already tried the FW legacy driver in Win7, check out these alternative drivers:
http://www.qimaging.com/support/downloads/
They are popular with the windows 8 crowd who don't get the Win 7 legacy driver option.
I'm using them on Win7 because its the only driver that will keep my FW interface connected for more than a minute.
Not sure if it will help your video problem.
