No audio while scrubbing.
on Dec 6, 2012 at 8:03:26 am

So I'm trying to make a lyric video for a uni assignment and for the life of me, I cannot figure out why I'm not hearing anything while I scrub. And it's quite hard to match up the text with the audio if I cannot hear it.

I've looked and searched for hours trying to find an issue that was similar to mine. And while I have, the solutions just did not apply to me. The RAM preview is fine and it's a .wav file and the audio is not muted whenever I scrub. I've also tried other files and the audio is still not heard while scrubbing. I can't remember any other answers I happened upon.

I'm sorry if someone has posted something similar to this, I might have overlooked it. But I would be forever grateful if someone could help me out.

Hold Cmnd/Cntrl while scrubbing CTI to hear sound and view video together.

Hold " Cmnd/Cntl + +Shift " while scrubbing CTI to render only audio.
