    I began using AVStoDVD 2.4.0 when DVDFlick went kaput, and have had good results up to now. Recently, I DL'd an AVI movie (Silent Night 2002) which plays well in KMPlayer, but when I burned it with AVStoDVD, the audio was so far out of sync that the video was into the next scene. I hadn't made any changes from previous successful settings, so I'm at a loss as to what happened. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks. PS - I just DL'd version 2.4.2 and will install later.

    Don't know if it was the same download (717,840 KB, 23.976fps) but I used 2.4.1 on it with no problems.

    Nope - different file. I've installed 2.4.2 of AVStoDVD, and will give it a spin.

    Update on my original post:
    On careful viewing, the AVI file itself is out of sync.
    I found the Afterdawn Syncing Guide which suggested trying YAAI.
    YAAI failed with 80040241 (Media Player couldn't load source filter).
    I next tried AVIMUX GUI, but it wouldn't run. Both pgms don't seem to be supported anyway.
    Next, I dl'd VirtualDub v1.10.0, and with much trial and error adjusting millisecond delays in the Audio Interleaving, I got an acceptably sync'd AVI which played perfectly on KMPlayer.
    However, when I used AVStoDVD 2.4.2 to create a DVD from the new file, it found numerous audio problems, switched encoders, hung up for a while (in aften? I think), and the DVD it created was out of sync.
    I'm thinking there must be a better way to do this!

    Have VirtualDub recompress the audio after adjusting the sync.
    Audio > Full Processing and select a compressor (probably have to install Lame MP3 encoder).
    Change Video to Direct stream copy and save file.

    Then try again - or even the old FAVC (uses the same encoders as Avs2DVD - but no installation required).

    attar - you're a genius! The new DVD plays in perfect sync after following your instructions. Thank you. I noticed that AVStoDVD took 3+ hours to complete (it usually burns DVDs from AVIs in less than an hour). 2 hours of the operation was audio encoding. Do you think this was because of the recompression? Once again - Thanks! Your audio syncing method is worthy of a new Afterdawn Guide.

    Who knows.
    The audio was out of sync from the beginning and decompressing it then recompressing it at least gives Avs2DVD something to work with.
