Audio files not importing

I really hope this is the right area to post this.

I used audacity previously to clean up some audio for a video project and it worked out pretty well. But today I tried to import some audio files to tweak before syncing with video and it didn’t work.

I attempted to drag the file into audacity and it didn’t do anything. The loading window popped up briefly, showing the load data (or whatever you call it) for like a second and then…nothing.

I attempted to import via file>import and the same thing. Didn’t work.

Any chance I could get a little help?


You have to install something called FFmpeg into Audacity before it can play some audio formats, & rip the audio from some types of video files, see …
