    Help -- a few of my videos on youtube have lost the sound. Some are my own, some are videos saved to my channel. What would cause this?

    Sorry if I put this in the wrong place!

    Right place .. as good as any :D
    Does the audio work for you on this YouTube
    What video/audio format are you uploading to YT ?

    What does Media Info say the audio format is for those that work … or not ??

    Yes, the video you posted a link to has sound. Audio format for my wedding video (no sound) is WMA.
    BTW, the same video is on my computer and plays fine.

    What video editor are you using ?
    What's you operating system ?

    I'm thinking you need to get away from WMA

    In about an hour ... I'm going to be getting very busy .... for a day or two
    I hope someone else will help you.

    It was years ago, I don't remember what editor I used.
    Windows 10.
    Has to be a YouTube issue. They play fine on my computer.

    Just guessing ... The problem could be W10 and/or Browser.
    Sound like you used the older windows video editor - on an older operating system.
    Your profile says ... W7 Professional 64 bit Dell Inspiron 580 PC
    I think YT changed some things recently.

    Do you have the original camera video ?
    Care to share a link to the YT video ...

    Video unavailable
    This video contains content from SME, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.I looked that up and found this
    I reside in Pennsylvania.

    If you want people outside of Newfoundland to see your wedding video, you might have to put in on dropbox, google drive, one drive or some similar site and email links to the video to those you want to be able to view it.

    If published here ..... Then a YT copyright hit ....
    Only means that YT can advertise on it .. (make money - and pay their YT license)
    YT probably can't advertise (make money) across unknown borders/languages.

    Do you have a DVD ???
    Then it "Probably" could be ripped to a "modern - MP4" video file and re-worked.
    Handbrake should be able to Rip it.

    If you upload it to your YT channel .... and it doesn't have a copyright flag ..
    then you should be able to legally download it from YT.
    Log in to YT and Right click on edit ...

    I didn't see any way to do it.

    Hubs says maybe I can delete that one and re-upload the file again?
