Could not find data chunk!
when i load a .wav into headac3he, it says "Could not find data chunk!" ....what does that mean???

I dont know if your sound source is ac3 but if it is there was a similar problem >here<

I had the same problem a couple of times but i simply used the Latest BeSweet and BeSweetGUI and it converted it fine for me.

Go >Here< for BeSweet

If it is AC3 you can also use AC3Fix to remove the WAV header and so it will be recognized as AC3. :wink:

Can you tell me if this information shows the ac3 format you are talking about?

Fraunhofer IIS MPEG Layer 3-Codec. 48 hz sampling stream

XviD - mpeg 4 codec.

I don't know which part of virtual dub information page tells me. All I think I can see is that MPEG Layer 3 - codec is mp3 if I am right.

I'm listing details here because A. I don't know which identifies it being ac3 audio.
B. I am having that "can't find data chunk" message

make sure you select audio>full processing mode>compression>no compression and save as a new wav that should do it.load up the new wav into headac3e.

As you guessed, your file isn't ac3 but mp3. When it's ac3 that is clearly indicated : AC3.

Did that and worked. But I have a new problem. After I use TOk to activate tmpgenc to make the new mpg there is no sound.

I think that is normal : you have to ask to TOK to do all the process (video + audio) or you tell it that you have an external audio file.

In the later case, TOK do only video and you have to mux the 2 manually.

But I didn't use Tok since months...
