  1. My log file is below, as is a link to the video I'm trying to get over from my Samsung HMX-H205 high-def camcorder to an AVCHD DVD.

    I've read this forum until I'm blue in the face and have made minor adjustments here and there as recommended to the multiAVCHD settings to no avail. I have the same end result each time. A video that plays great on the resulting AVCHD DVD, but the audio is running about 4-5 seconds before the video the entire way through the video.

    Any last suggestions based on the log file information below and / or assessment of the 1920 x 1080 / 59.94i video found in the link below? I'd really like to get multiAVCHD to work for me but I'm just about to throw in the towel and try something else.

    I use MultiAVCHD daily and rarely have any problems with a/v sync issues except when my hard drive can't keep up. Unfortunately this isn't a solution, but I gave your clip a try and was not able to get a satisfactory AVCHD either. The only thing I noticed was when I ran the clip through MediaInfo and noticed that your video is variable and the audio is constant, and in my experience I experience a/v sync issues when I don't have constant audio and video bitrates.

    I'll be interested to see what the more knowledgeable people suggest for solutions.

  3. Many thanks for the reply. Looks like I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and get a BluRay burner and just burn everything to BluRay discs if something else doesn't work out w/the AVCHD DVDs. Thanks again for your time in helping me troubleshoot this...

    Play the m2ts file in the stream folder with mpchc and click on the menu play/audio option and adjust audio time shift till you get the audio/video in sync,then use that value in tsmuxer in the delay option when you click on the audio.Then save as another m2ts file.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.

  5. If the delay is constant and not increasing, this is a piece of cake to fix. Not unusual at all and no big problem. Johns0 laid out one solution.

  6. I've tried the steps suggested by Johns0 with no luck... I never can get the video / audio even halfway close to being synchronized... this sucks... tons of footage and can't get it to AVCHD DVD to save my life...

    Post a short clip.

  8. Here's a short clip. This is the original clip that plays fine in its native format. When I run the clip in the attached link through multiAVCHD, that's when I end up with audio that comes about 4-5 seconds in advance of the video.

  9. One thing that I'm curious about is that I've been taking the video files that I've copied from my camcorder's memory card to a folder on my laptop.

    I then have been dealing with the processing of those video files on my laptop and the creation of the resulting folders needed to burn an AVCHD DVD all on my laptop.

    I wonder if the audio / video sync issues are due to all of the files being dealt with on my laptop? What I'm saying is that maybe I should try having the *destination* folder where the directory structure and resulting files for the AVCHD DVD built on an external hard drive attached to my laptop... that way, the originating video files are on my laptop and the destination files that multiAVCHD creates are on a separate hard drive and therefore my laptop's hard drive isn't having to do "double duty" with trying to read/write files all on the same drive.
