    Unable to trim/expand custom audio file in video editor


    Hi - I have added custom audio created by the voice recorder to my project in Windows Video Editor. It appears and plays just fine; however, I am unable to expand or trim it. Instead of seeing a "bar" that I can move or expand, it appears as a tiny line that won't stretch. I am trying to add my narration to my video. Appreciate any assistance.


    P.s. There is no appropriate category listed for this question so I apologize in advance.

    :)

    N8 video editor does not see my songs/videos

    Hi

    after buying my n8 a month ago I started exploring the video editor and immediatly a problem appeared:

    I open a new project to create a video and the video editor

    does show e some videos captured with the device, so I choose a video

    , trim it and so on, add some transitions and texts in between and

    here the proble begins - I go to "choose a music for background" and the

    list of song availiablefor adding is empty, that means the N8 does not see

    any mp3/ogg/acc etc files which are supposed to be added to the video film i'm making=(

    However it is possible to make an audio record with the audio recorded and such file can be seen

    as a possible for background music in the video-editor.

    So, what can I do make N8 video-editor to see files from my music collection stored on the phone so that i could

    use my songs in y video-films created on MY N8?

    Did Video Editor get rid of the Custom Audio tab?

    I have been using Video Editor for a few projects for about a year now and I went to add some audio to a new project and I cant find the option anywhere. Was the option removed? I was aiming to have this project done by the end of the month, and if I cant
    use the Custom Audio feature anymore, I'm either going to have to scrap this project or buy a new video editor...

    Unable to trim/expand custom audio file in video editor

    Cannot edit any metadata in audio and video files

    I'm running Windows 10, fully updated. All of a sudden and for no apparent reason, I'm unable to update any metadata/tags for audio and video files. Haven't tried to update metadata for other types of files.

    It's very important to me to be able to edit the metadata/tags on audio files so that my 14,000+ audio files organize correctly for playlists, etc., and I like proper metadata on video files as good practice.

    Audio files are largely .mp3, and video files are either .mp4 or .wmv.

    I have tried Properties > Details on individual files in File Explorer and several tag/metadata editors that have worked great for years. Some tag editors will show the metadata/tags it allegedly saved, but when I go back to File Explorer
    they're not there. I have also ensured that the same metadata/tag categories I edited in tag editors display in File Explorer.

    I've also tried some suggestions from forums:

    • Making sure proper permissions are granted
    • Ensuring I'm signed in to Microsoft
    • Copying a file and trying to edit the copy's metadata/tags
    • Copying the files to new and existing other folders and trying to edit
    • Ensuring the files are not read-only

    Any ideas on what could have made the metadata/tags uneditable all of a sudden, and more importantly how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
