How to sync audio with video in VLC for Mac
For the complete details: Here are the steps:. Then click on Video under Extra Settings. There check or uncheck the Save audio delay option. It works for individual videos. My movie has un uniform audio no one knows when to delay and how much to delay after every minutes….. Why VLC dont detect the unsync videos with audio delay? Any way to disable the autorrection on audio unsync? I have videos in various formats mkv, mp4, avi, etc where the audio sync is off when I play them in VLC on a Mac mini but the same videos play perfectly on an iMac.
I can sync them using the audio tools in VLC but it appears to be a larger problem with either the mini itself or a VLC setting on the mini.
The odd thing is, older videos that I copied to the mini weeks ago play fine — its only recent videos copied to the mini that experience the audio problem. I have a file that has somehow had the video saved at the right speed, but the audio somehow plays too fast, so it starts with matching audio, but then the audio quickly leaves the video behind and the gap becomes greater until finally the audio ends and the video just plays on to the end.
To complicate matters vlc is the only program i have that can even open the file.
Is there any way of fixing this in vlc? Thanks, and also thanks for making such an amazing program! You will need an external editor to extract the audio and then, slow it down or speed it up to match the speed with the video. I thought this may be the case, but thanks nonetheless. Any recommendations on a preferably free or low cost candidate on an external mac editor? Thanks again!
Never miss out
I have quicktime pro, and another quicktime player, mpeg streamclip, divx, nicepayer and even final cut pro, but still vlc is the only one that will open the video…. What could be the problem? Is there a way to check what the correction time VLC is using to sync up the audio properly? I would then be able to open the file up in some video editing software and delay or advance the audio to the same time VLC did to permanently fix the problem.
Hi Eric, I have same problem. The only way I have to detect that on Windows, is playing the video first on Windows Media Player, Windows Media dont apply a fix on unsync videos, so, thats the way I found before playing on TV. For fixing the issue on MAC, the solution is quite simple. We can use the shortcut keys on the MAC for the same and can get rid of all the troubles related to syncing of Audio with Video. Using some of the handy keys in the form of F key and G Key are some of the keys to adjust the audio in accordance with the video.
So, depending on the delay or ahead of audio with the video, all you need is to press the keys and get the work done easily. These two keys can do wonders for you. All you need is to adjust your video in accordance and enjoy the video. However, remember that the changes which you are going to bring in here, will only be temporary and as soon as you closes the video and restarts it, all the changes made will be reset and you need to bring the change again to the same video.
Thus, in order to make the permanent change, just bring in on the best video with no such errors with the audio.
