Audio Source

Allows you to choose whether to whether to export the current audio track from MPlay or to source an external file for the audio.

Exporting the current audio track will export it as an .aiff file to QuickTime. This exported audio will be stretched the same as it is in MPlay. When sourcing an external audio file, the Insert Audio Without Transcoding checkbox will be turned on, while for exporting the current audio track from Mplay, it is usually off.

Audio File

If you choose to use an external audio file in Audio Source you can click to open the File Dialog and choose the audio file.

Insert Audio Without Transcoding

Turning this checkbox on suppresses the audio compression dialog from QuickTime and inserts the audio stream directly into the final movie.

For example, if QuickTime does not you compress the audio with an mp3 codec, enabling this option will allow you to still get an mp3 audio track into the movie.


This option has no effect on the Mac.
