I was converting a blu ray video to dvd-video using AVStoDVD and ran into a new problem. The video converted properly, but the audio was delayed by a full second in comparison to the video stream.
I was going from DTS HD audio and converting to AC3 2 channel sound at 192 kbps. I’ve had trouble before converting from DTS to AC3 using AVStoDVD, but in the past, it has simply failed in the audio conversion. This audio sync problem is new.
I ran it through VideoReDo’s Quick fix tool and it failed to help (first time for that). So I manually adjusted the audio advance in VideoReDo, saved as an mpeg2 file and reauthored. The result is ok, but I’m not too happy about the problems I’ve seen so far in AVStoDVD regarding DTS sources.
Since BD Rebuilder has added conversion to dvd-video as an option I think I’ll try that next. The one time I tried MultiAVCHD for this type of conversion it was an unmitigated disaster, so I’m reluctant to try that again. Anyone else have a tool they prefer for converting BD video to dvd-video?
