    A friend of mine sent me a video clip and I was able to view it perfectly the first time around. I tried playing it again, but this time their was no sound and no movement in the spectrum analyzer. My friend did not experience the same problem and tried sending me the file again, but it still would not play the sound. Is there any way I can restore the audio to the file?

    Have you tried just to reboot the computer ?
    If it's still not working maybe it's something with the codecs of your media player.
    Which software do you use to play it ?
    It can depends on the camera brand...Quicktime is used a lot for digital camera movies.

    I just realized that the first time I saw it, I was using headphones to listen to audio on my computer. Why can I only hear sound when I use head phones rather than through my speakers?

    The file is in .avi (XViD) format.

    Do you have sounds sor other things ?
    Maybe you need to install the right "codec" to decode the video.
    Try a search in the forum here with that word...
