Thumbs down DVD::RIP audio out of sync with video


P2.4 768mb RAM - Ubuntu 7.10

Hi all

After ripping a DVD, and then encoding to xvid (or any format) the audio is always ahead of the video by around half a second.

Thinking that it may be lack of processing power I have tried reducing the 'nice' level from 19 to 10, and running from xfce.

I seem to remember this issue starting after upgrading from Breezy to Edgy, however it did not occur on all rips. I'm now on Gutsy and happerns every time. Which is a pain as I've just got the 'cluster' module working :-(

Just wondering if anybody else has experienced this.

also, the transcoding process with sometimes stop with one second to go, I have to manually kill the process.

For the transcoding process I have had much better luck with Avidemux. I rip with DVD::Rip and then recode with Avidemux. Much easier, much more powerful in that it is extremely easy to run.
