Why do the movies I download always have no sound?

I download movie torrents, but every time I do, there’s never any sound, and I can’t figure out why! Whenever I download a TV show it’s fine.

    You have to check for sound driver on computer or laptop

    install K-Lite Codec Pack. I have faced same issue.
    the reason is u have a video codec, but based on the movie encoding, audio codec is not supported.

    go for K-Lite Codec Pack FULL version

    Most likely you have a problem with the audio codecs (either corrupt or missing the required ones for those movies).

    I use klite codec pack (http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm) it comes with the free and capable media player classic (but i prefer bsplayer);

    Also, when installing (i recommend the standard versions) it will detect and remove (with your approval) codecs that will conflict with the ones being installed by this pack.

    VLC is an alternative as it seems that it doesn't need you to install additional codecs .. but i find it a little slow and awkward (i'm probably to used with bsplayer)

    Try a codec pack , K-lite codec pack is great, or use other players like VLC or TheKM player, both very good.

    VLC as well as Media Player Classic are very good players and they are both free. VLC would even play both audio and video of a ISO file, hope it works http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

    The problem is definitely codecs.

    You can either install:
    K-Lite Codec Pack
    Combined Community Codec Pack
    XP codecpack

    Or download a media player that comes with codecs like:

    Having no sound or movie not playing well normally points to Media Player not having the correct Codecs. Media Player only comes with a few of it's own Codecs so If you would sooner use M.P. then you have to download and install the codecs yourself. Some have suggested VLC because it comes with all the necessary codecs to play anything. Just google Codecs and you will have a good choice to choose from, I myslf use K-Lite Codecs which works very well here is the link - http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm Basic should be fine if not just try the next one ie - Standard, I myself use the Mega as I do a bit of encoding, hope this helps.

    some movies are built with codec. The best video/movie player i used until now is KLMPlayer.

    Install codec packs. VLC is great but if you just using plain media player this one will do for majority of the movies that you download.

    Use VLC.

      I second this suggestion. I don't remember VLC not being able to play whatever I threw at it.

      I've read that codec packs can be trouble, so proceed with caution.

    Install a codec pack there are a few to choose from, the one I like is Sharky's codecs. I cant post a link as you dont say which version of Windows you are using.
