Delayed Audio

Recommended Posts

From my VHS machine I fed a taped program in for capture. During the feed I did not hear audio, but I saw the pix. After the feed, I previewed the file. The pix was fine and the audio was there but was delayed more than a minute. Did I mess up? Can it be fixed? Or do I start all over again?

Can you give us a few more details - how were you capturing, what program in the suite were you using, what your capture/graphics are, etc, also your computer specs (similar to the ones in my signature)

HP 1.2 GHZ Celeron PCI Bus 40 GB 512 MB Ram Vidia Fuzion 3D Video Board 256 MB

Roxio Ver 6 DVD Builder Cameramate video Cameramate audio Dell flatscreen monitor.

 

I have used this setup twice before to make VCD's no problems. The only thing different is the much better video board, over that which came on the motherboard.

 

I fed a VHS tape in to be captured. During that feed I could see the pix but could not hear the audio. ON preview playback both the video and audio were there but the audio was delayed considerably, more than a minute.

 

I don't understand how both could be recorded successfully, but some how get separated in the capture, or preview process.

 

I am also confused as to how to reply to your query for more info. I saw two or three places where there was a Reply button. I hope this gets through ok.

There was a problem with the board over the weekend and none of us could get it working properly, so don't worry, you did nothing wrong.

 

Did you edit the video? Sometimes that will throw the sound out.

 

How are you capturing it (where is the audio and video being fed to the computer (line in/S-VHS, USB or what)?

No, I did not do any editing to the file. I feed video-yellow audio L&R-white & Red into a USB device which

puts them into USB form. It is a device which came with one of my media programs, probably ProPix. The gadget works. I know because when I feed my satellite receiver in the audio and video are just fine.

 

One other concern, aside from the nearly two minute delay, is why I don't hear audio during the capture process. Why would Roxio show you the picture during capture and not the audio?

 

When I go to the set up screen, I can see a drop down for video. I select Cameramate. For the audio drop down there are two choices. I select Cameramate.

OK - I've an idea now what you're doing, so try this

 

First of all - defragment the hard drive (if a file is fragmented, the drive heads skip all round the place collecting the information).

 

Check for any background running apps and shut them down - if necessary, download and run spybot S&D and/or Adaware SE (both free for personal use) if you haven't already done so. Malware can creep onto the computer and cause problems in rendering

 

Try saving to an iso file first and then use Disc Copy to open that (it will write the file to the DVD)

 

Let us know how you get on

I have the same problem but it only happens when I use a light scribe disk (DVD-R). If I use a normal blank disk DVD-RW there isn't a problem. I am using the VHS -> DVD option on the left of menu window. I don't if it has something to do with the light scribe disk itself.

You replied to a thread that has been dead for over 4.5 years. Do you have Easy CD & DVD Creator 6? Does that version even support LightScribe?
