Hello,

I have been trying to edit a video I recorded with my webcam. I have searched the forum for answers and I have downloaded and tried Eyeconverter. Lightworks won't play the audio or video file once converted. The original file will play audio but not video. I have also downloaded MediaInfo and this is what it says on the converted file:

Format : MPEG-4
Format profile : Base Media / Version 2
Codec ID : mp42 (isom/iso2/mp41)
File size : 2.65 GiB
Duration : 8 min 49 s
Overall bit rate mode : Variable
Overall bit rate : 43.0 Mb/s
Encoded date : UTC 2016-12-31 17:46:26
Tagged date : UTC 2016-12-31 17:46:26
Writing application : FFmbc 0.7

and this is what it states on the non converted file:
Format : MPEG-4
Format profile : Base Media / Version 2
Codec ID : mp42 (mp41/isom)
File size : 440 MiB
Duration : 8 min 49 s
Overall bit rate : 6 969 kb/s
Encoded date : UTC 2016-12-21 19:46:38
Tagged date : UTC 2016-12-21 19:46:38

Help please!

It appears you have converted a file suitable for delivery to a file suitable for delivery. You should convert your source material to something suitable for editing. You can try this method with EFC.

You have to follow the video exactly. You are still converting to a delivery format. Watch closely @ 1:02 to 1:25. Be sure you select the "edit" tab before you hit "convert".
