Hi, I am new to this forum
My PC is running Windows 7, 32-bit version.
Have been using Audacity for a few months sporadically without any issue.
Yesterday I tried opening an MP3 file and got the error message:
“Audacity did not recognize the type of the file… Try installing FFmpeg.”
I tried multiple times to run the FFmpeg download using the "Preference/Libraries/
It’s creating a folder under C:\Program Files\FFmpeg For Audacity, with contains multiple files including “AVFORMAT-55.DLL”.
However, in the library, it still shows “FFmpeg library not found”.
I uninstalled Audacity, downloaded the 32-bit new version… getting same issue not able to open MP3 files.
Uninstalled 32-bit version, downloaded the 64-bit version… getting same issue not able to open MP3 files.
I now see it is running Audacity 3.1.2
I cannot upgrade my PC to 64-bit.
I need your help to get my Audacity to work again.
Is it possible to reinstall an older version running 32-bit, that does not require FFmpeg, like it was previously.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
