As they were released, I bought all 10 seasons of Stargate SG-1. A few months ago, I got a video ipod to watch stuff at work when no calls were coming in. (and yes, boss knows )
I decided to try and watch all the sg-1 episodes at work and used DVDFab Platinum 220.127.116.11 using the ipod option to rip them. I had it do 2 pass and 128 audio for louder and brighter playback on the ipod. I left the other settings alone (bitrate 768, 640x352, 29.97fps) and it worked great for the first 5 seasons. I’ve tried 4 disks of season 6 and one of season 7 and the audio is about 5 seconds behind the video on all of them. Video plays at normal speed and so does the sound. They just aren’t together. I tried it using the generic option and the avi was out of sync as well. I tried it on 3 different computers lowering the audio bitrate and the video bitrate with no difference. I tried a dvd from season 5 to make sure something wasn’t messing up my system and it worked just fine.
The season 6 dvds play fine in a dvd player. Also ripping the entire dvd to the hard drive and playing it as a dvd on the hard drive it plays fine. Even tried using the copy of the dvd on the hard drive to make a mp4 for the ipod. Nope. Also, the current version 4 does the same thing.
I tried the program “FairUse”. Way to many options that I have no idea what to do with. It did have a “Full Auto Mode” but that just picked the biggest show and converted that to an .mp4. It WAS in sync though.
I copied the dvd to the hard drive using “DVD decrypter” and then used DVDFab Platinum to try and make it an ipod mp4. It was out of sync as well. I’ll try the suggestion I saw just a bit ago to someone else about unchecking the “Enable read-ahead cache”.
Any other ideas on what to try?
