View Full Version : DVD Flick AVI Audio Sync Issue

23-07-2009, 12:32 AM
Me and my friends recently made a 90 minute random video, and want to burn the resulting AVI to dvd, to play anywhere, but ALL the audio is at least one scene out of sync, the original AVI is perfectly in sync, and changing settings doesnt help.
Im using the latest version of DVD Flick, no sure what i am doing wrong

You're in NZ so it should be PAL, no NTSC right?

Using mediainfo post all the info about the original AVI:

Have you tried reinstalling a codecs? May be a codec issue

WHAT did you record it with and how did you transfer it to the PC?

Probably be better if you use another program. Could be because you transferred the video via USB, why its out of sync

not too sure what program, as i didnt do it, the AVI i posted above, it plays perfect, its just burning it to a dvd that has issues, what do you recommend in place of DVD Flick?

HOW did whoever transfer it to the PC then? It makes a diff. Could be the library you used (lame), try something else.

Hmm...that all seems fine.

Speedy-with DVD flick you just load the movie file straight in, and it plays fine on the computer, so its probably not how he transferred it:)

Aidan, try re-encoding the file with one of the preset in handbrake:

Interesting, most "family / friends videos" don't get encoded with virtualdubmod, nor do they get their video encoded quite like that... It's how the SCENE generally encodes stuff ;) IF your friend actually did that himself, he should be smart enough to put it on to a DVD.

However, benefit of the doubt and all, the problem is your decoding issue. Try grabbing an application such as WinAVI and give it a whirl, it'll do just what you want.

hmmm yes the friend in question is an odd character, but anyway that off topic, il try handbrake (?) unfortunately since its the once off, im tryin to stick to free products as theres no point buying a product if il never use it.

Handbrake is free

Handbrake is free

He was referring to WinAVI:p

Looking at that info, I wouldn't be surprised if he has used AutoGordian Knot to encode the video.

I notice that the audio is sent to 'variable bitrate' compression. I've sometimes had trouble with audio-sync issues arising from this setting, so you could try and get him to re-do it with 'constant bitrate' setting instead.

Another thought - maybe he's trying to record a stream off some sort of video-input (like off a TV tuner card). In this case, he'd probably getting into strife by trying to record the video and audio at the same time using high-compression codecs. He'd be better off leaving the audio as an uncompressed wav file while the video encodes, and then seeing if he can do the mp3 audio compression later. Even fairly grunty PCs can struggle to encode a stream of video to avi and audio to mp3 at the same time.

Hope this helps!
