AVI no audio - 0x6771 Ogg Vorbis 3 PLUS

Sunday 13 May 2007 15:46

I've just downloaded an AVI movie and when I played it there was video but no audio. Clearly it was a codec problem, but how to resolve it? Codecs are those pieces of software in your system responsible for decoding video and audio. Without the right codec, you're stuffed.

I started by downloading GSpot, a piece of software which will tell you (among other information) the codecs a movie uses and whether or not you have them installed. After running GSpot and dropping my problem file onto it I could see clearly that I did not have the codec to decode the audio. It even listed the codec I needed 0x6771 (Ogg Vorbis 3 PLUS).

Finding the right Ogg Vorbis codec has been a real pain though, and from the various forums I read, I'm not the only one. To simply visit the Ogg Vorbis site and download the latest codec was no solution. LINK UPDATED: 11 Aug 07 I found the version I needed here. UPDATED INSTUCTIONS. After downloading that ZIP file, unzip it. Then right click "vorbisacm.inf" and select install. This will register the codec on your system and hopefully you'll be away.

Other codec versions I tried resulted in still no audio or sometimes a deafening squealing noise. Seems this was the one for my problem file.

Update: I've kept a copy of the codec and will host it myself, if in the future I cannot find further links to it.

Hi peeps, is there an alternative solution for Ogg vorbis 3 plus to work? As the vorbisacm codec didn't work in windows 7.

Thanks a million, this workes perfectly. Everything you mentioned in your post was my experience as well, the codec from the Vorbis site did nothing. This one solved the problem, and my sanity.

"After downloading that ZIP file, unzip it. Then right click "vorbisacm.inf" and select install."

Thanks for the correct codec after I spent fucking around for too long.

I owe you a drink.

May I also add my thanks. The solution worked perfectly. Why on earth should videos have sound encoded with such an odd codec? It would seem there are enough of these videos around for the required codec to be more widely available
3 Apr 2009 09:49 by potatotomato
thanks man! i was plonking around the net for a few hours. Not to mention enabling and disabling the codecs i had installed. managed to narrow it down to ACM3 but took forever to figure out why it still didnt jive. Worse still i ended up with sound and no picture. Dont know how that happened but all is fine and dandy now. U da man!

Just ran into an avi file which needed a specific ogg codec... The one from vorbis.com didn't work. But this one did!

15 Sep 2007 07:23 by Nasdak
Wow, that helped a lot. Thanks!
11 Sep 2007 06:55 by Witz End
Again, thanks.

Been around the net nine times, installing codec pack after codec pack and yours was the only solution that worked.

1 Sep 2007 03:15 by Some One
Excellent, this worked for me also fixing that exact problem listed in gspot. For some reason I needed that even though I had the normal ogg vorbis codec installed.
29 Aug 2007 07:26 by Hoefnix
Thanks this one did it
26 Aug 2007 01:36 by indicatoto101
