I have successfully imported video files (from OBS) to Audacity to take the sound and convert to audio files. But this function has stopped working. I don’t remember if I used the .mkv file or the remuxed .mp4 file, but I have tried it with both. I have attached a compilation of all the error messages, the files I have installed, and the location/path according to my file explorer.
I have tried to use both file-> open and file-> import and had no success; I’ve done this before to export .mp3 and .wav files of my D&D games, but I can’t remember how, or if something is truly not working right.
Yes, I could export as .m4a just fine, and I could hear/play the audio track with windows’ player app just fine after, as well. So what do I do about FFmpeg not being able to access those files right? Is there another source for them I could use? I realize this is an audacity forum, not an FFmpeg forum, I’m just not very computer literate.
I’d suggest looking into OBS to see what export options are available. Probably a good idea to test with a short recording so that testing is quicker, and when you find settings that work, write them down and try the same settings with your real recordings.
