Transferring Videotape to avi sync problem

by anotherhappyday1 / February 23, 2012 8:27 PM PST

I have transferred some videotape to avi using AVS Video Recorder. When playing back video I notice that the audio is about a half second ahead of the video. This can be distracting on playback. I then convert AVI to M4V (to play on Iphone) using AVS Video Converter. There is no change in video/audio sync.
Is there adjustments I could make to sync the video and audio so it plays both in time?

Thank You,

Don Seddio

Isn't AVS some payware?

I'd ask them how to fix it.

But it is worth noting that lip sync is a well discussed area with too many discussions about using video editors to fix that.

I'll note that as well as VLC PLAYER has a setting to adjust for bad sync.

Lip sync problem when converting AVI to M4V

What is VLC Player and can files be played in sync on the fly or do I have to reconvert files in order to get lip sync? Can VLC Player be used with Iphone movie playback?

Sorry forget to offer a link about VLC.

I VLC just a player or is it a capturing program. I would like to capture video in sync not just play back an out of sync file.

Then look at your capture settings.

Too often I find folk DEMAND that the encoding be THIS and THAT and won't realize they made something that will be out of sync or the APP (such as mentioned in this discussion) is buggy.

That's not my app, it's not one I will ever own since they SPAMMED the forums.

Sorry but I think at this point you see the problem.
