[QUOTE=swolfer;2237014]Ok, I looked at the file information from the input and output files. Here is what it says:
Below, you will see that your video is 672x300 and mpeg4.
Video input file
Size 672 x 300 pixels
Bit rate 741 kbps
Frame rate 25 frames/sec.
Video compression: Microsoft MPEG-4
You are not only converting video, which who knows how many times it was converted before, but you are also changing the size to 352 x 288, and your bit rate is only 2500 (good video is 8000 - 9000 bitrate). Plus you are changing it from 25fps to 30fps and changing aspect ratio
Vide output file
Size 352 x 288 pixels
Bit rate 2500 kbps
Frame rate 30 frames/sec.
Video compression MPEG-2
Bit rate 112 kbps
Sample rate 48000 hz
Audio format MP3
Your audio should remain at 48hz if you want it in sync.
Bit rate 224 kbps
Sample rate 44100 hz
Audio format MP2
I don’t know if this tells you anything or not.
I’m not looking for perfect picture but I do want the audio and video to match up. Right now when people are speaking in the movie it seems that audio is lagging a bit. Also video seems to be somewhat slow, like when people move about there is a lagging.
When you say “better quality” but slower time use AVS to DVD, how slow are you talking? Also is that the name of the product (AVS to DVD). Checked website and found AVS DV to DVD but no AVS to DVD.
Sorry guys if I’m being stupid about this. Just trying to get a movie on disc with quality worth watching that doesn’t take days to do. Nothing too fancy.[/QUOTE]
You are NEVER going to get good quality by taking video which has already been encoded, then demux and re-encode it, and alter it’s properties. You are making far to many alterations to this video to have any hopes of keeping good quality…
