Any help greatly appreciated for a self-confessed noob - a long time viewer first time poster to the forums.
I'm trying to get an Xvid AVI onto DVD and have succeeded quite well so far, only thing is I'm having problems with DVD playback audio sync.
Note: The original 700MB file doesn't have any audio sync problems whatsoever on playback through my laptop on WMP - this is all about audio sync, I have no problems with video sync at all. I've got the latest Xvid codec, Divx and K-Lite packs.
Im burning with a Matshita somethingorother and a Duo Core 2 with 2GB RAM.
I'm burning the finished ISO with Nero 8 through the Burning Rom at 2x with data verification at the end on a DVD-R (Tescos 8x - I think personally theyre good quality)
I'll try and explain this as fully as follows:
- I run the Xvid through VirtualDub 1.7.8 as follows:
Video > Direct Stream Copy
Audio > Full Processing Mode (like it tells me)
Audio > Compession > No Compression (PCM)
^^ Not too sure if this is right, should I be using Mpeg-3 Compression 48kbps?
Interleaving > Enable Interleaving
- Preload 500ms
- Interleave audio every 1 frame
- Delay by 0ms (I think this is right)
^^ Not entirely sure if this is right - should I set it to 0 for all values or turn it off altogether?
Also not too sure with video if I should Direct Stream Copy or just Normal Recompress.
Anyway after that I get the output file which is usually around 1.6-1.8GB, also plays fine on WMP playback, no loss of sync whatsoever.
Next, I go to DVDForger 0.6.2a and load the newly tinkered about with AVI and set:
Single Layer DVD
Create ISO image
16:9 Aspect Ratio
192kbps Audio Bitrate
Audio track of video file
I think thats about right. So I click the button, let it make the ISO. Next open it up in Nero and burn at 2x, verify afterwards. Pop it in my laptop DVD player, skip forward a little to a talky bit and there you go, its as badly dubbed as a kung-fu movie.
Any help really is greatly appreciated - what am I doing wrong? Theres a few things I can think of...
In DVDForger I should set the audio bitrate to Default rather than 192kbps (dont know if this makes any difference)
In VirtualDub I should use some form of Audio Compression (even though WMP playback is totally fine)
In VirtualDub I should turn off Interleaving or change the values
In VirtualDub I should change Video and Audio to either:
Direct Stream Copy
Full Processing Mode
Direct Stream Copy
Full Processing <-- can't do this as I don't have 60gb spare on my HDD.
Any suggestions much appreciated - I'm totally tearing my hair out over this.
Thanks to all, I have faith its something really simple and you all will know what to do
NOTE: The audio is about 2-3 seconds ahead of the video.
