OK, I give up. I'm trying to move my home movies (Sony Hi8 camcorder) to DVD. Things look fine using my sony burner... they even play on my standalone dvd player using +R. Problem is.. they don't SOUND fine. This is the classic "audio and video are not in sync" question. Of course, the longer the movie goes on, the worse it becomes. Here is what I have: 1. Using MS Movie Maker I download the movie from the camcorder using a firewire card. This saves it in .avi format. Certainly, the audio/video is in sync with the avi file but that doesn't count since I believe that's a bunch of VBR mumbo-jumbo. 2. Using myDVD, import the avi file and burn away. About 4 hours later... I have a new coaster (well, the audio isn't in sync anyway). I'm running XP on a PIII 1 gigHz CPU. The movie is stored on an external drive connected via USB2.0. Generic firewire card. I tried using TMPGEnc. That broke the avi file into w2v and wav files. The wav file sounded like crap, however. Sort of like I was a kidnapper hiding my voice sound. So... all I want to do is mux the video and audio into some VOB files and burn away. Is there any way I can control the syncing? Seems to me this should be easier than it has been. Also seems like sites that discuss DVD burning focus on ripping... which is interesting but doesn't help me much.
