Curious if you know why the Audio track isn't recognized by Macs using either Quicktime or iMovie for videos recorded with the PDR in a 2017 Camaro SS 1LE?  The videos play with Audio using VLC, but I can't seem to get the videos to play with Quicktime or more importantly edit the videos with iMovie so I can post them on the web.

Thanks!

I think that would be a question for Apple support more than Cosworth. As you rightly point out, the sound works in VLC, therefore the files are not corrupt or anything.

I expect that this is a codec issue, VLC is typically very good at being able to deal with many different video / audio codecs to decode and play these but some of the more common players often struggle.

Normally you can download these codecs from the Internet, VLC installs alot of them be default I believe, other don't.

Many Thanks, Rob

I did find that if I rename the file to *.avi, then try to open it on the Mac, then Quicktime find and tries to convert the format, and I can save that format to something else, and I was able to retain the video and audio.  Very odd.  It's an annoying work around since the Quicktime conversion take as a while, but I did achieve the end result which was being able to upload the video with audio into iMovie so I can edit the movies recorded with the PDR on a Mac.  I do think that something about the compression format by Cosworth however was non-standard, and the primary reason it didn't open natively with Quicktime or iMovie (which leverages the same drivers). I thought that "MP4" was a "standard"... as it turns on in video/audio compression, the word "standard" is saddly and extremly loosely worded term. Lame.  Thanks Apple and Motion Picture Amatuers group for creating such a loosely coupled format.  And "thanks" to Cosworth for not considering that a good part of your customer base who could afford the cars you put these solutions in just happen to use Mac's and not PC's... lame.

Your mac is missing the necessary audio codecs. If you right click over the video file and select 'Get Info' you will be able to see what the codecs are and install them to the system. You should also download the Pro Video Formats from apple and have them on the system  https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1947?locale=en_US
