Im trying to edit some videos in Openshot but there's no sound in the preview window. Sound works when I play the videos on VLC however.

The videos play with melt but they also have no sound. Im running Ubuntu 12.10. Spent a good two hours on Google searching for a solution with no results yet.

Right click on the video in 'tracks', go to properties, and make sure 'enable audio' is checked.

Audio (sound) has to be enabled on your track (ie: video) for you to be able to hear anything when you play your preview or download your video. When I first installed openshot I had the same problem as the OP- enabling audio solved it.

If you could add that into your answer it would be the best ;). –  Braiam Sep 13 '13 at 20:10

Openshot requires a video stream and an audio stream and you have to make sure that the eye and speaker icons are present and active to view and hear the video and that audio levels are normal...

Yeah volume is fine on VLC, and the eye and volume icons are showing. Videos preview fine, just without audio. –  dnlbaines Dec 1 '12 at 9:29
