    A Mysterious Lack of Sound in iMovie...
    This is kind of a long story...
    I have a sony camcorder, and, as has been suggested to me, I transcoded my muxed mpeg video files to mp4 using VLC.

    When I play the clips in Quicktime, all is well... but... when I import them into iMovie, the sound disappears on me.

    I have checked all the likely culprits, like clip volume, etc. I even tried extracting the audio... which produced a sound clip that looked as though it should have been well... soundy... but remained silent.

    Is there a solution for this... or am I screwed? Please help?!

    update:

    forgot to mention that the process I mentioned above (transcoding and importing into iMovie...) HAS worked for me before. This hasn't happened before.

    Several people have had different sound issues lately. I think after upgrading QuickTime. Search the forum. I think the solution was to remove or upgrade a third party codec.

    Also, when playing in QT, do a command-I to see the information on the file. There you can see the codecs being used. Perhaps the audio codec isn't right for the video codec according to some internal iMovie rule.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    I had the same problem and I downloaded iSquint and had it covert the files to an MP4 and it works for me now.
