Audio out of sync just ever so slightly

Apr 12, 2015 at 7:46 PM
Well the discussion was down for awhile and I had great help thru email from somebody @ mcebuddy. Whoever helped me out was great and we figured out that my recorded files were just no good. Now I have that taken care of I have some slightly out of sync audio with my video, I am using the latest version 2.4.2 and setting are for MP4 Normal. I have uploaded a log

I am also having issues with commercial not getting cut out but that i can deal with for now.

any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

Glad to know it worked out. Do let us know which of the solutions finally worked for you.

Coming to your current issues, I checked out your log file and it looks like somehow handbrake thinks your video format keeps changing:

2015-04-11T22:11:27 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Handbrake --> Encoding: task 1 of 1, 63.14 % (22.17 fps, avg 18.61 fps, ETA 00h09m42s)[22:11:27] 663.111755s: Video -> Film
2015-04-11T22:11:28 MCEBuddy.AppWrapper.Handbrake --> Encoding: task 1 of 1, 63.16 % (22.17 fps, avg 18.61 fps, ETA 00h09m42s)[22:11:28] 663.345337s: Film -> Video

It changes between Film and Video, which has an impact on the frame rate consequently it has an impact on the audio sync.

A quick fix would be to use the Audio offset parameter in the Expert Settings page to correct the audio sync (assuming the audio sync is off by a constant figure).

The longer term solution would be figure out why handbrake thinks the format is changing.
Try this, open the profile and change the order to ffmpeg first instead of handbrake. Let me know how that goes and if the audio sync is still off then please upload the log file.

If that fixes the issue, then just try downloading the latest nightly build of handbrake and replacing the one in the mcebuddy installation directory and see if that works.

Quite a bit here for you to check out :)

Can you look at my latest log file? I did as you say replacing the handbrake in the mcebuddy directory.

Thanks for all your help. I think I am so close to to having this convert all my shows for use on other devices.

yes I see that from the logs. your source file isn't perfectly encoded it has duplicate packets but much better than before.

Did you try using the audio offset compensation in the expert settings to correct the sync?
