OpenShot Video Editor - no sound at all

I have installed OpenShot Video Editor version 1.1.3 on my Ubuntu Linux version 10.04 from the software repository. Editing video clips in both mpeg2 and mpeg4 works great, but I have no sound at all when I try to playback the clips. When I play the video clips in Movie Player  both the sound and the video works great.

The sound codec is Dolby Digital (AC-3) and it is correctly installed in OpenShot as far as I can see.

I have tried to uninstall PulseAudio, but that didn't help either..

Any  suggestions ?

(Yes, I have installed JACK on my system..).

Hi toyboy61,
I dont have any experience with Linux or this tool Open Shot, but I do have a sound knowledge base with video editing,
so starting with the mpeg2,
with mpeg2 and the AC3 codec did you just rename this from a Vob? as that is usually how you get the AC3
Even in windows this can be a problem as the attributes of mpeg2  ie vobs copied straight off a DVD may not decrypted correctly and may need to convert it first,
do you have ffdshow installed?
take a look here at a guide for this tool
