Ok, this sounds like it might be helpful. I don't have vdubmpeg2. I guess I need to get that? (Is 1.5.10 the latest?) Damn! How many versions of vdub are there? I already have four! I was using MP3freeze, since it was the only thing that would seem to handle VBR's.
But yeah, it's just on the LiteOn that it's out of sync. All the VBR's at 48000 seem to be fine, but all of the ones at 44100 (except one) are way out of sync when I try them on the LiteOn.
I agree. VBR sucks! I've never really had any trouble until I ran across these. I don't know exactly what I'm doing, but I did manage to get them into CBR mode, but it still was off for some reason. Can you tell me the correct way to extract audio, compress, and reinsert it into the video? Maybe I'm not doing it correctly? There just isn't a tutorial for exactly what I'm trying to to, I guess. At least, I haven't found one.
I'm not sure if I made it clear, but I want to keep them XVIDs, since all the episodes fit on one DVD that way, and they look great. I just need to figure out what's wrong with these few episodes that aren't in sync.
Ok, I tried opening this video with vdubmpeg2, and I get the same error as all the others. The only one that can open the VBR's without the error is MP3 Freeze. I'm trying all the steps you listed above, though. Thanks for your reply. BTW, I did register at that forum earlier today, but there's a 2 day waiting period to post anything, apparently.
