I recorded a desktop screen video, but instead of video, I hear only my voice. It was working well before, but this time I can't see it. What should I do to make my video work?

I hope you also mentioned what software you used to make the video. If you have not yet saved it as a video file format like MPEG or AVI, then it is still a project file. If it's still a project file then you should make sure that you are opening it using the desktop screen video tool/software that you used to create the video. On the other hand, if you have already saved it as MPEG, AVI or any video file type format, try using different media players like VLC aside from Windows Media Player and see if it will work with other media players. If it works, the media player is the problem, if it didn’t then the video file itself is the problem. If you still have the project file with you, open it using the software that you used to create it preview the video then save it again as a video file format again to recreate the video.

If it was a video you recorded and you are sure it is working fine before with both the video and audio, check if video is enabled in your media player. This problem can happen if you are using VLC media player because both video and audio can be disabled in this program.

If you have a video but you only want to hear the audio and not see the image, you can disable video. When you playback the video, you will only hear the audio and no image is displayed on the media player. If you are using VLC media player, make sure video is enabled. In VLC media player, click “Tools” then “Preferences”.

On the preferences screen, select “Video” tab. Here, make sure “Enable video” is checked. This ensures image is displayed when playing a video.

VLC media player enable video

Also, try other media players on your video to see the difference. If there is no problem with the video, it should display an image when the video is played back.
