    No audio playback with Panasonic AVCHD files linked or import

    I am experiencing no audio playback on Panasonic AVCHD files linked or imported(*everything has been playing well till the MC update from the old appman to the now new Avid Link). I believe it's got something to do with AC3 codec, but in the new appman (Avid link, with MC 2018.12.1), I do not see anywhere to install the AC3 codec.

    In my project, when I import or link mp3, it plays ok, files from the Sony A7r also playback ok(audio/video), it's only my Panasonic AVCHD that has no audio playback(video playback ok) Any help appreciated

    So I am not alone on this, and this seems to be a bug in 2018.12.1, so hopefully Avid fix it soon because I need to finish a project, and can't because of this audio issue

    you can use one of the workaround mentioned in that other thread...

    The only thing I can think of is that it is supposed to auto activate when you have those type of audio files in the timeline. At least that how it worked for me. I had to connect to the internet and then log into my Avid account. It auto-activated and I went on to start TRYING to cut. Avid acted so weird that I uninstalled it and put 8.6.3 back on my workstation. Haven't tried to update it since. Don't plan to either... I don't have time for that s@#t.

    Any resolution on this bug - other than the processing of audio in another tool for import.
    This just started happening to me with an update to Avid Link and 2018.12.1  wish I had know before, would not have updated.

    This was fixed. I think it was 2018.12.3. Look for the bug fixes on that release.
