Longplay Sound Problems Questions for the Admins/Moderators

Last updated on 9 months ago

KAGE-008 mentioned to me that some of my longplays have been producing no sound when played on archive.org. The longplays in question are including (but not limited to):

Yoshi's Cookie (SNES)
https://ia802800.us.archive.org/31/items/sneslongplayyoshiscookieus/SNES_Longplay_Yoshis_Cookie_-_US.mp4

Othello (NES)
https://ia803101.us.archive.org/35/items/neslongplaysunlicensedvarious/NES_Longplay_-_Othello.mp4

Wanpaku Kokkun no Gourmet World Fan Translation (NES)
https://ia803101.us.archive.org/35/items/neslongplaysunlicensedvarious/NES_Wanpaku_-_Kokkun_no_Gourmet_World_JP_FT.mp4

Bomberman GB (Game Boy)
https://ia803102.us.archive.org/17/items/gameboylongplaybombermangbus/Game_Boy_Longplay_Bomberman_GB_-_US.mp4

When I encoded the games as prescribed in the support forums I made sure the audio had sound (I had to make sure the audio wasn't desyncing as that is a pet peeve of mine) and when I download said games from archive.org onto my computer, they were producing sound like they should.

I have two questions to the administrators: Do you want me to resubmit the soundless longplays or leave them alone? And may I ask what exactly is going on? Personally I think it is a malfunction from archive.org since I have tested other longplays of mine submitted the same way with no problems whatsoever (i.e. the Anpanman games), in addition to the above mentioned and due to the fact that I have no control over that stage of approval; with all due respect if there was indeed any problems with my longplays somebody should've at least either said something right then or even declined it under grounds of no sound. Plus, I feel that I'm correcting someone else's mistakes if I do resubmit them. Therefore I feel that ultimately there's nothing wrong with my longplays and that the situation is archive.org's problem. Should the admins say yes, then I will, but it will take a while since I have other things going on right now. If not, then I won't even touch them. What's the answer?

There's the Makai Island game with the same 'issue' as well. At least I didn't want to make a replacement for that one, since I have other priorities, most of them personal-wise (I'll be back to attending college courses on Monday, via virtual methods).

Thank you for mentioning that. Off the side, hope the courses go good for you.

Besides that, my questions still go. What does the admins say?

It's not a big issue. The files just use the wrong audio encoder. Fine if you have installed an AC3 dolby decoder at home, just Archive video player doesn't support it. Ideally use AAC audio that is supported everywhere.

So I'll take that as a "leave it alone", then? OK, thanks! I'll make a note. Just so long as that's the final nail in the coffin for this debate.
