Synchronize AVI audio and video
Ever downloaded a nice movie from the internet (Bad you), or didn't correctly synchronize your audio and video when creating your own family video's? Personally, I think there is nothing more annoying than a video where the audio is behind, even if it is for one second. So here's a small how to, to get your sync back so that you'll fully enjoy the movie. Get your bag of popcorn ready!
- First, check if your file is already AVI. If it isn't, convert it to an AVI file. I would recommand WinAVI, but there are many similar programs on the net that can do the same trick. If you have the AVI file, go to the next step.
- Download VirtualDub. VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit Windows platforms. Install the program on your computer.
- Next, start up VirtualDub. Open your AVI file in the program by going to "File", then "Open Video File" (Ctrl+O).
- Now go to "Video" and select "Direct Stream Copy".
- Again, go to "Video" and now select "Frame Rate" (Ctrl+R).
- Select the radio button which has the following text: "Change so video and audio durations match". You should end up with a non-standard frame rate.
- Go to "File", "Save as AVI" (F7). After saving the video, try to play it in your media player if it is in sync now.
There you have it, a fully synchonized movie. The only time this trick doesn't work, is when the audio and/or video rate changes during play. It's almost impossible to fix this. Now, lean back and enjoy the movie.
