I've just finally found a free trial of sony vegas I haven't used and it was working perfect and everything was playing back fine, but then it stopped letting me playback projects, a message pops up saying:
"An error occured while starting playback" The device specified is in use.
And when I click on details it says,"The playback device Microsoft Sound Mapper does not exist".
Anyone know the problem?
Ok, it seems you either have one of 2 things:
1) Spyware. Run Avast antivirus (Free) and delete any spyware on your computer
2) Codec is missing. A codec is script used when compressing a file. Depending on the type of file you can't play, that's the codec you're missing.
