  1. So, I'm sitting here with about 60 AVI files. They were probably ripped from VHS, but since I can't find them elsewhere quality is fine with me.

    The sound however is annoying. It's got a slight hum which I'll probably have to live with, but the audio is only out of the left ear.

    What's the easiest way to make the sound come out of both ears? I don't really feel like separating audio on 60 files, converting it, then importing it, and encoding a video.

    Is there an easier way?

    I have Premiere and Powerdirector 11.

    In Premiere load each file onto the timeline and drop the audio effect FILL LEFT onto the clip. Then render out. You will lose quality though. You can use Media Encoder and queue up the files, then batch process them instead of rendering one by one.

    Easiest way is to put a stereo-to-mono adapter plug.

  5. You can probably reduce the hum with the Noise Removal filter in audacity. Find a section with just the hum to train the noise filter. Then apply the filter. If you're going to do that you might as well fix the stereo mix in Audacity too. Of course, you'll have to reencode then remux the audio with the original video.

    If you install the ffmpeg source plugin for Audacity you can import the audio directly from the source files. That saves you one step.

    If you upload a sample someone will take a look at it and give you an idea what's possible.

    If all you want is play the files on your PC, you can use VLC media player and choose Audio -> Stereo Mode -> Left. That way you'll have the left source coming from both speakers.

  7. Unfortunately, I use Media Player Home Cinema. Not sure if it does that.

    I'd like to fix the audio, though, as I do use my tablet sometimes and I use Chromecast to send to my kitchen TV sometimes.

    In MPCHC you can use the Audio Switcher to map both channels to the Front Center.
