hi, i've been capturing video/audio from VHS and digital camera without too much of a problem, except no matter what i try i cannot get rid of some clipping or clicking sounds in the recording. Regardless of the format (AVI, MPEG1, MPEG2), the quality (bit rate, frame rate, sample rate), or the program i use (VirtualDub, AVI_IO, PowerDirector 2.5, WinDVR 3.0) the audio quality is poor. Yet the audio is still in sync with the video and if i change the settings to just record audio, it sounds great. I tryed an external analog-to-digital converter and used optical inputs but there was no improvement. So i am convinced the input to the sound card is fine. There must be something happening during the capture of the video that interferes with the audio capture...but i'm not sure, and that's why i'm writting to you guys. Specs: Dual Pentium III 1000Mhz 512 MB RAM Gigabye Radeon 9200 VIVO Chaintech CMI8738 PCI Sound (w/optical I/O) Highpoint ATA100 PCI RAID (and much much more...) I would really appreciate any thoughts/ideas, thanks.
