Choppy Audio

Question

I just installed NXT 2 and I am using the video capture from creator 2010. The software installed with out any problems and when I try to capture and burn to a DVD the video capture is working well but the audio is very choppy. Is there anyone who has experienced the same thing and found a fix for it?

Hard to fix something that does not happen for most users.

 

When is the audio choppy - while capturing and burning or when you play the finished DVD?

 

The choppiness can also be due to a inadequate system. Please post your system specs.

 

Most of us here recommend not using the caputure to DVD but prefer to first capture to your hard drive and then nurn the DVD in a separate step.

I have the vhs player hooked up to a tv by cable connection so to be able to monitor and also to the av video / audio output connected to the video capture usb. When I turn on the video capture to preview the output of the vhs the audio is choppy immediately before I even activate the capture software. It also does it if you try tp capture to the hard drive. I am presently running a scan disk just to say I did but don't expect that to fix it. I also ran the repair feature through control panel with no success. My computer is a Dell Studio MT,YOR Q8200 (2.33GHZ) - upgraded to Windows 7 home edition from Vista SP1 Home premium 64 bit ENG, SDT, 6gb DDR2 SDRam at 800MHZ and 640 gb hard drive which isn't 1/4 full.

"When I turn on the video capture to preview the output of the vhs the audio is choppy immediately before I even activate the capture software". What does this mean? Since this happens before you even start the capture program then obviously there is something wrong with you hookup and not with the program. Why don't you forget about the TV hookup since you can see what you are capturing in the preview window of the program

I did a test today to capture and save to my hard drive. Upon playing what I capture the video played back to fast and the audio was to fast as well as choppy. I guess I don't know what to do about the speed of the playback and since my usb capture device is now 4 years old I'm thinking there might a problem with that. Again just making a best guess. I have attached what I hope is a better description of my computer specs. I did creator 2010 it ran just fine until the program became very unstable and would not respond at all no matter what I did as far as uninstall and reinstall / computer reboots etc: The home videos that I did capture with 2010 came out pretty well until the program kept failing. That is when I decided to try the NXT 2 but already now looks to be questionable. I appreciate any comments you can give me. System Information

One thing I don't like in there is your DPI setting! While that is not your problem, it should be set to Normal (100%) otherwise some buttons will go off screen ;)

 

I suspect your fast and choppy is a result of dropped frames - your PC not keeping up with the incoming flow...

 

Multitasking during capture is often a cause. Also HDD free space is important! you need GB's of it and a recent defrag helps!

 

You did not say if you were capturing as AVI or mpeg? (try Both!)

I changed the DPI setting and did a test as AVI and Mpeg and got the same results. I leave my computer on at nigh and off during the days while I'm at work and I have auto defrag every night. I am not doing anything else during the capture and have lots of GB space available so I am throwing my hands up. Thanks all for your input.

Not so fast...

 

Turn off any AV and firewall. Insert your CD and when offered, run Repair.

 

Reboot and see what happens.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did all this and still ended up with the same problem, runs to fast and choppy audio. I thought about trying a new usb capture device but I doubt that would fix the run to fast issue and maybe not the audio issue. Hate to spend more money on something that may not be the problem. I have to convert to a WMV in order to slow it down but can't save it that way so I'm back to throwing my hands up again.

I am having this exact issue. I am trying to convert VHS with Roxio Media Import and the audio plays choppy. When I play it back, it runs extremely fast and is out of synch. Did anyone find a solution for this?

Rarely is it actually the "exact issue"...

 

Start a new Topic and supply details of your system as well the exact steps and programs (by Name) you are using ;)
