Photo Story 3 No sound on uploaded Music RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi installed Photo Story 3 on my computer (XP Version) and when I load music from my library (All my music is MP3 format) it loads some music and not others. Error message shows the file isn't in the correct format, when they're all in the same format. When I finally get to choose a valid music file there's no sound on play back. I set the volume on Photo Story to High and still no sound. What do I need to do?

  • Hi,

    There is a known issue with Photostory3. The fraunhoffer codec for MP3 is not included. There is a way to force it in but to be honest it really is more trouble than its worth.

     

    A quick work-around is to launch Windows Media Player and load up your MP3's in a playlist. Using Windows Media Player you can then convert the audio from MP3 to Windows WMA audio.

     

    Once converted to WMA, use the WMA files in Photostory.

     

    Kind Regards,

    Martin
