Video Capture Fine - But Audio Playback Bad....?

Question

I can play and capture videos from my Video Camcorder tapes - but when i play them back on my computer the audio is all messed up - it goes fast and slow and high and low - but the video is fine.

 

What can I do to fix that? I really need to preserve these videos in the BEST format possible.

 

I have Roxio Creator Special 2011 and the video capture usb

 

Thank you

HOW are you capturing, what settings?

 

You should be using the capture program from the 2011 Suite and it should be set to DV AVI ;)

What camcorder do you have? Standard definition or high definition?

 

I assume that you have performaed maintenance on your computer recently especially cleaning your hard drive and defragging it.

 

What program are you using to play back those captured video files?

I'm using the capture from the 2011 suite under 'capture video' but the only option to capture is DV, DVD HQ/SP/LP & VCD. So I've been using DV.

 

As far as playback I just play them back within the capture area after they are finished recording OR the basic windows media player...and the video is fine but audio is all nuts... :(

 

The camcorder is a Sanyo from 1996, but when its playing and being recorded it sounds perfectly fine - its only upon playing the RECORDED version on my computer that I have distortion.

 

Thank you for any help... I hope I dont have to try a different capture program - I love to use Roxio for all my multimedia needs - but these videos need to be saved in perfect condition.

Try the DVD HQ and see how that does...

 

Generally this sort of thing points to your PC. Specs would be nice to know, including your Video Card, Sound Card & HDD Free Space.

How do I quickly find the detailed specs?

 

I have a 1tb hard drive but its at 900gigs already - but I also have an external 2 and 3tb that I could maybe use if that would help.

It's an HP 64bit Windows 7 OS just purchased early this year...

Which is better quality - AVI or MPEG?

 

The DV option says it will be 720x480 AVI and the DVD HQ 720x480 Mpeg-2 8mbps

 

Please, don't duplicate post. Stick with your other thread.

PC Specs look good, check the ATI updates for your card and software here, AMD. They are up to 11.9 this Month!!! :lol:

 

Did you try a test cap at DV HQ as I suggested?

What audio card/device do you have on that computer? Have you updated the drivers for it and made sure it is the default playback device?
