When I play back Spark videos using the DJI app, the audio track is present and sounds normal.  When I put microSD card in the computer...audio track is stripped out.   Also happens to any Spark video imported to FCPX.  The video is fine but the audio track is missing?  This cannot be normal behavior.  Anyone know a solution?
Thanks
Alan

There is no audio.... Spark doesn't have microphone.  It records audio on your phone from phone mic on cache'd version.... which is much lower quality.

There is indeed audio, videos played back through DJI app have audio, the mic used to record audio is of no consequence.  If it is in the video playback on the DJI app, it should be in the video on the card inserted into a PC.

This is correct. The audio grabbed from your phone's mic is part of the cached video downlink video, not the video that's on the SD card.

Here is the bottom line, DJI designed an audio recording system that records audio....for no reason.  How is one supposed to output videos with audio content????????????????   The inability to export video with an audio track is insane.

You can out put video with audio, you can do it with dji app, you can do it with third party apps Final Cut Pro premiere and lots of other software.

You can also record commentary while filming. What problem are you having.

Just go to videos/photos section here how do you think those guys managed.

If audio was able to be recorded on the Spark all you would hear is the whirling of the propellers! Who wants to hear that?

+1. A mic on the drone would be silly.

So am I correct when I say... you have to take the Audio of the cache version from phone and strip it and overly it with the high resolution video from the micro sd card?

Just don't use the DJiGo4 app as it downgrades your video for some reason. Hope they address this next firmware and app update.
