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?
I have been using Sony Vegas 15 for a few months now with no problems. I recently switched over to using OBS for my recordings and have been experiencing a lot of problems with the preview window on sv15.I've been using OBS for 2 months now but the problem started approximately 2 weeks ago and has been preventing/stalling me from editing and rendering my videos. I have tried changed draft, to preview, etc on the different options (auto, half, full). I tried changing my settings to allow gpu on vegas and changed how much dynamic ram I have. I've tried uninstalling vegas, clearing the cahce and manually deleting its files from my pc, which doesnt seem to work. No matter what it lags. I even tried installing the older sony vegas (13) and even that lags. I also tried installing Premiere Pro and it was video preview was lagging there as well. I don't know what to do at this pont since all video previews on all video editors has been lagging for me. Please help. OBS settings attatched.
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.
Try this thread for more help:
Got to Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices, the audio tab, default device, and for me I had to change it to "C-Media Wave Device and it started working again :)
I was facing the same issue on my Asus laptop. You may get some useful ideas from <a href="">Asus Error Code 55</a> page also.
