AVI sound problems


emu wizard
Im having problems with sound on my avi,divx
dvd rip or whatever you want to call it.
The problem is the sound is very late, like 8 seconds late, Its very annoying.
You would see somebodys lips moving but the words that they are speaking are not in sync.
This is not the first problem i had with this the movie the video was also jumpy/jittery
but i used divxRepair to fix that, But the sound has always been this way.

Is a way to fix this or do I to download another copy?

The movie is Star wars episode 2 btw.
(I had to see it again after seeing Episode 3)

Maybe the person who encoded it didn't convert the sound from VBR (Variable Bit Rate) to CBR (Constant Bit Rate). I re-encode my own movies at CBR because when I used VBR it was screwed up, the audio and video were not synchronized.

The only solution I can think of is to use an app like VirtualDub to re-encode the video (encoding take a large amount of time, like 1 or 2 hours) and the sound at CBR.

hey thanks butters.
Im gonna re-encode it like you said (even if it takes forever).
Its gonna take double the amount of time because i have two 700mb
pieces of video to encode. I guess I'll do while I sleep. thanks

{EDIT} wow 6 hours and counting, and thats just the first 700mb file
goodnite...im goin to bed...LOL

yeah thats what i said ( It said "time remaining: 06h:12m:00s")

I was using DIVX doctor but I got tired of waiting and switched to
virtual dub like you said.

I guess divx doctor is just to slow. virtualdub is the ideal tool to use.

I shouldve just used virtualdub from the begining, It already fixed the sync problem in the first part of the video, Im doing the second one now.
I wouldve been there forever with DivxDoctor.
