Ok people, so I have recorded some game footage with fraps (game recorder) for the first time, in multichannel audio mode (6 channels) BIG MISTAKE!
Anyways, after I recorded a few hours of footage and was going to put it together in Sony Vegas Pro 10e, Sony Vegas gives me the error of "Stream attributes could not be determined" Now, I used to record my videos in regular stereo and it worked fine when I did, so I determined that must be the problem. So I turn stereo audio recording back on, went into the game, recorded, and wow! Audio is being added into sony vegas along with the video. Awesome right? Yeah, that's great to know about it after recording a long let's play with multichannel audio enabled. FML
So anyways since I researched the problem and found out Sony Vegas 10 does not support multichannel audio (great...) therefore I've been trying some software such as Audacity and Avidemux to convert it from 6 channel back to stereo sound, but no luck. Audacity crashes when I import the fraps video sounds into it and Avidemux won't detect the audio at all. I'm at a loss here and I have no idea what to do, I can't just re-record everything at stereo sound, because this was a let's play and what I did cannot be replaced.
So if anyone has any suggestions or anything, I'm happy to hear them, I really have no idea what to do. I've been googling my problem for about an hour now and I give up, so yes, I'm asking for help. Thanks tech/audio gurus of ADISC in advance!
