      Hi Guys,

      I hope someone can help, I’m having trouble with a couple of my videos where
      the voice track is muffled when playing back on Instagram and Youtube on an Iphone,
      but works perfectly fine on my Ipad, Macbook and TV.

      In this samples video at about 32secs, there should be a voiceover clip that plays,
      but it doesn’t play on the phone.

      The voiceover bit that doesn’t play is:
      ‘Sometimes working out can relieve the pain from the day, we might not be in the right moment but pushing ourselves can give you freedom no matter where we started’.

      Hope this makes sense.

      When that bit of VO starts, one of the channels is inverted – it’s the opposite polarity. If you don’t have any audio editing software, listen on a stereo system, or even a laptop and when that make voice starts – the audio image goes very wide, then shrinks back when the girls voice starts. On a mono system, it cancels out, like those karaoke machines try to do to get rid of the vocal. Somehow, when you edited the video you used an inverted clip – you can fix it in the edit.

      Thanks for getting back to me. Not sure why I didn’t notice that!
      Sound isn’t my strong role so appreciate your help in this.

      Thanks a lot.
