June 21st, 2011, 03:56 AM
Right I am here to tackle a problem in burning home DVD's.
So here is my problem I am burning DVD iso's and they seem to work great I have video output and sound output however as the film goes on the audio gradually becomes more out of sync but if I hit the rewind button on my remote and then play the sound is in sync again for a few minuets.

I am using DeVeDe and Gnome Baker to create and burn my iso images to disc and they work great on the computer but not so great on my dvd players I am burning onto Verbatim DVD-R using Ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx I have no Idea if that is relevent but hey nothing here is making sense to me so any help is greatly appreciated.

I wonder if it is a frames per second setting issue?

I think people can have this problem due to the different fps speeds of 25 for PAL, & 29.97 for NTSC, I think some software creates videos natively at different speeds that the above as well. Also if the audio & video are different lengths it can cause the kind of problems that you are having apparently.

Not much help am I? :) Anyway perhaps that will give you a clue that helps you find a setting that will overcome the audio problem.

[edit:] I just had a quick search & found these for you to reference:


This is likely more applicable:


[edit3:] This uses software for Windows but it is a how-to which has to expand your understanding of the problem:


[edit4:] Post_8 in this thread has a reply from support for video software that was causing a somewhat similar problem to yours:

Thanks man I will definitely take a look into your suggestions and read up on it. I was thinking that maybe my frames per second might have something to do with it but was unsure since the video seemed perfect... I know that I am using PAL settings for the video not NTSC. thanks for the post.

You caused me to do that research & some. As you'll see from reading, it looks like there can be more than one cause to the problem you are having. Right down to the software itself, so when you do sort it let us know how you solved it, it will help others one way or another.

Good luck with it, I hope the solution is quick & easy. :)
