I recently installed the latest preview update for UE 4.7 but have since then been unable to get any sort of audio working in the engine. Sounds won’t play in the content browser and there is no more audio in-game at all. I am also unable to modify the volume in the volume mixer because the program seems to have disappeared from the list. Here is a screenshot of the problem:
I don’t know if I messed something up somehow but I hope someone knows how to fix this.
I’m having the same problem on my end. But just to clarify, it’s not just the sound in the editor that is missing - the in-game sound is gone as well. For me this happened when going from preview 4 to preview 5 of the 4.7 version.
Is there any way to go back to preview 4? I’m currently in the process of implementing sound, so it’s not very good timing for me to not have any sound in-game.
Yes, the bug includes all audio from the editor, including during play.
There is no way to revert to an earlier version of the Preview binary. Preview 6 is not far off, though, so you won’t have long to wait. Generally it is not a good idea to do your main development in a Preview build; they are out so the community can get a feel for new features and give us feedback and bug reports, but they can be released with many bugs.
Yes, I will certainly be more careful when installing preview builds in the future. I guess maybe you’re not in a position to give me an exact date for the next update, but would you say that we are talking days or is it rather weeks?
