Encoding Video Files help
I have a question about encoding a video file using Avidemux. (Don't worry this is strictly above board. I don't pirate and I don't steal. I simply want to make a back up copy of some of favorite VHS tapes. They only last so long you know.)
Anyway I used the xvid input on my Pinnacle Capture card and the record function on Xatv to get the video into a digital format on my computer. I used the MS Raff format to rip it to an AVI file (A huge one at that. Over 20GB). But it caused a descrepancy between the audio and video timing. I tried to use Avidemux to reduce the size of the file and correct the descrepancy. I used the xvid4 codec and the lame mp3 codec for the encoding and used the default setting to correct the lag in the file. But it failed.
Is there anything I can do? Use a different utility? A different setting somewhere? Something I am not thinking of.
