[SOLVED] Imported AVI to VideoPad with sound but no video

VideoPad Video Editor is a free, professional, video editing application which allows you to create movie projects from various video clips or a single video file. It also allows you to import a wide variety of audio and video file formats. But feedback unveiled that when people imported AVI files to VideoPad, many pictures dropped out. They only could hear the sound but couldn't see the video. When meeting this kind of issue, how to solve it

The common suggestion is to import some images to the media list and drag one down and drop it on the timeline. It should preview in both left and right preview panes. If it doesn't then you have a problem with VP, and I suggest you re-install the software. If the previews work OK then load the second image to the timeline so it follows the first and add a crossfade between them. Now save (export) the timeline as an .avi video to your PC. Close VP, restart it and add the new .avi video to the media list. Drag it to the timeline and check it both previews and plays. If this is OK then VP would seem to be working OK.

The fact that the .avi you initially loaded from your PC (.avi is simply a container for the video) didn't play may mean that it was corrupted or empty (you can check its size) or was wrongly encoded. Try converting it to another format of video...wmv; mpeg etc. that VideoPad supported.
