I’m running ffmpeg 2.2.2 and ive tried the latest version of audacity (2.1.2 i think) and 2.0.6
im trying to import an mp4 file with two audio files that work (plays and switches tracks in VLC)
i’m running windows 10.
in my libraries under preferences it sees ffmpeg (that i downloaded from the link on the audacity wiki, the one that audacity itself sends you to when you press download under libraries)
yet after prompting me to import two aac files (which is correct) the same error box that comes up if you dont have the ffmpeg library installed comes up. Under the help box, it tells me to install ffmpeg.
I have been trying to fix this for five straight hours.
PLEASE if anyone could help me I would be very grateful.
How about one MP4 file with two audio tracks or shows? Since MP4 is a video format, what are the two different shows or tracks? Where did the MP4 come from? Are we talking about a movie and you’re trying to split the stereo from the surround offerings?
If you have the FFMPEG pulgin for Audacity, you should be able to just open it normally. It’ll ask what channel you want to import and then you go from there. I have no problems getting audio from my OBS Multi .mp4’s with that method.
@lotuseatermable, are you sure you are actually clicking to select the streams you want when Audacity asks you?
