I’m having a problem when trying to produce a watchable DVD. I convert my AVI file to DVD and burn to disk, but when I go to play it on a stand alone DVD player the sound does not sinc up with the video. Is my PC not fast enough? (AMD dual 5200, 2 G RAM) Is it my DVD burner? (Sony Q170A DVDRW) I’ve tried AVS video converter, Xilisoft, and same problem. Does anyboby have any suggestions?

Audio/video sync problems are almost always caused during the conversion process. One common cause is using mp3 variable bitrate audio in the avi.

Some conversion programs can deal with this better than others. You say you tried AVStoDVD? That is normally a decent conversion program. A couple others to try are FAVC and DVDFlick, both of which will produce a finished dvd ready to burn. Use the HC encoder in FAVC.

ConvertXtoDVD is a commercial program that is popular around this forum, and should give a good result if you don’t mind paying for a conversion program.

Dvd Flick is going to be the answer for you. i use it often and best of all it is free and easy to use.

Check your file before you convert & after you convert, before burning. For this you can also use VLC Media Player, (free).

Rather they should go to the actually site for the most current version.

Or you could use the FileHippo update checker & keep up to date on other programs as well. I have found that FileHippo keeps up to date on programs such as VLC.

i have found in the past that if the film is out of sinc (vision & sound ) nero showtime will show it up. vlc even before/ after converting will show everything in sinc. DVDflick is good because it converts the picture then sound seperatly then combines the two later to get a better result. this process take about 2HRS and uses img burn (built into dvdflick) to burn to disk.[/quote]
