    Since re-installing W7, I have no sound from MOV files shot on my Canon from Quicktime, VLC, Mediaplayer and Adobe Premiere Elements. I can convert the files to mp4 and they play fine in iTunes but still not with other players. There is sound for the first second but it quickly drops off to a muffle. I have installed a few codec packs but nothing has helped. I've attached some file parameters. The files also play on my W8 machine, no problem.

    So technically I've solved the problem. Started thinking it couldnt be a Codec issue so I ran some diagnostics, etc to no avail. Then went to Control Panel - Sound - Playback and found alot of options for speaker systems. I just started changing the default speaker system until I got sound. What I dont understand is why iTunes and my system sounds still worked when the default sound system was incorrect. Any ideas?

    First and foremost, I do not recommend using codec packs.

    Also, the fact that you were having the issue in multiple media players, pretty much eliminates the codecs as some players such as VLC uses it's own codecs (not the system codecs). Which is why it (ie: VLC, MPC, MPC-HC, etc.) are recommended for testing. Just as an FYI for the future.

    Without knowing exactly what was changed, it's hard to say. Sounds like just a glitch in the config, and whatever you were changing, corrected the config.
