Oh no! - I cheered too soon!

The .MOV files only play sound in 32 bit.

But the mobile phone videos (MP4) play sound in 64 bit.

It's bedtime now, but tomorrow I will try asking Shark007, thanks.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

OK, I can't PM people yet as I'm new, but I have made a shortcut to Shark's 64 bit box, so I can change it each time I need to.

Also my AMR sound files don't work on 64 bit. So on 32 bit, MOV files work with sound and MP4 files don't have sound, but AMR files play ok.

On 64 bit, the function of the MOV and MP4 files are reversed, and no sound files.

I might have to consider converting some file types, but I also have my old XP PC and new PC back to back, so I can use them both (tricky when only one monitor!)

But great forum guys! I think it will be a big help in acclimatizing me.
