    I don't use AVStoDVD, but I notice that your source audio is AC3 448 kbps, which is the same spec as your output. So you could just use the original audio (e.g. with MKVExtractGUI) and get a better result, don't know if it will help your sync problem though.

    For that matter, the source video is MPEG2. So you don't need to reencode that either.

    Really, this MKV looks like it's a DVD video converted to MPEG and put in a MKV container. You just need to reverse the process, don't need to reencode anything, and very quickly you will have exactly the same as the original.

    Yes, I am simply trying to burn this back on to a DVD. What is the easiest way to do this?

    Use MKVExtractGUI and get the video and audio as MPEG and AC3.
    From the specs, they look DVD compatible, so a normal DVD authoring app should be able to use them.

    I use GfD, or Rejig is a very simple app that makes DVDs without menus.
    Both let you apply an audio delay if necessary.

    See https://www.videohelp.com/tools/sections/authoring-dvd for others.

    Thanks for the advice. I will give this a try today.

  6. OK, I did MKVExtractGUI > Rejig > ImgBurn.
    Plays fine on the PC but on my Sony Blu Ray I get a bad picture. See attached.
    I burned at 4x, should I choose a slower speed? Or maybe make .iso then burn?
    I used the same media as before once when doing the whole process through AVStoDVD and the video displayed fine however like I said the audio was off.
    Quote Quote  
  7. Oh, actually just noticed it does not list 4x as a valid burn speed for my burner. Maybe I should choose a faster speed that is supported? 6x 8x 12x 16x?

  8. tried burning at 12x and 1x. Made two more coasters.

    There is no picture attached.

    Check the specs of the DVD video, using eg Mediinfo.
    See if the DVD can play on another player.

    The disc is Sony, should be okay.

    The speed of burning shouldn't matter. ImgBurn will only burn at a safe speed.

    According to the log, these are the valid speeds for that media:
    I 15:12:50 Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: SONY16D1) (Speeds: 6x, 8x, 12x, 16x)

    You chose 1x, but it's not accepted, so Imgburn tried 6x.
    It looks as if the burn completed successfully.

    Here is the results from mediainfo for the .vob files from rejig:
    could it be the odd frame rate?
    My blu ray player is the google tv one. It plays the .mkv fine but when I try to play the .vob it displays garbage like in the pic.

    29.97 isn't "odd", it's normal for NTSC.

    I don't know what the problem is, otherwise, sorry.

    According to the avstodvd log you're using 1 pass VBR mode. The program will auto select which mode according to the input file bit rate. IMO one of a number of bad decisions.

    Trouble is, 2 pass vbr is the only way to get consistent results with avstodvd. I don't use it anymore ... or any other dvd author ... but I've used it many times. I learned to always use 2 pass vbr mode. I don't give a damn what anyone else says, it's the only way with that program to get reasonably consistent quality. And it really helps with audio/video sync.

    I can't guarantee that'll work ... just because vlc will play it properly doesn't mean it'll convert properly ... but it usually helps.

    I can't guarantee that'll work ... just because vlc will play it properly doesn't mean it'll convert properly ... but it usually helps.
    Hoser Rob,
    are you talking about consistent good quality picture or consistent file sizes?

    Forcing it to use 2 pass vbr mode did not help the audio sync.
    Can you recommend another way to get a mkv onto dvd?

    Does the sync get progressively worse, or is it out the same amount all the way through?
    If it's the same delay all the way through, you can delay or advance the audio
    in the project AviSynth tab. You can use the Trim function to just encode a small section to check it
    (for example, 0-5000 frames)

    why have you toggled off 'Keep DVD Compliant Audio' from 'Preferences'/'Audio'? The audio track of your MKV is AC3, DVD compliant, you should keep it and do not force AVStoDVD to re-encode it.

  19. 2 pass encoding should give you more consistent quality and a possibly a more exact file size as the first pass analyses the video so the second pass can distribute the bits better for consistent quality. How that'd effect audio sync I'm not really sure.

    MKVs can use audio and video delays, as can most other video containers. If there's an audio delay used in the MKV file, will AVStoDVD automatically apply the same delay?
    Audio in MKVs can also be "stretched" as well as delayed, and while it's maybe not done very often it may cause a problem. Is the audio out by a consistent amount all the way through?

    Open the MKV using MediaInfo. Use the view menu to change the view to html. Down in the audio section (there'll be one for each audio stream) MediaInfo should display a "delay relative to video" value (or something like that) if an audio delay was used.

    Aside from the delay, I'd burn another DVD video disc and try it in your player to confirm it's playback issues aren't being caused by poor quality burns. I've had mixed success using Sony media, although it's supposed to be quite good, and at one stage I owned a DVD player which was very fussy regarding the quality of burns and/or the type of blank disc. You could try ripping a "bought" DVD and burning it to disc, just shrinking it to fit using DVD Shrink if necessary. If that plays okay, then look at the encoded video.

    One thing I noticed, and not having converted video to DVD format much at all..... some AVI capable DVD players didn't (or don't) happily play mpeg4 video which wasn't encoded using the standard h263 matrix. Can the same apply when encoding mpeg2? It's just that I noticed according to MediaInfo your DVD video was encoded using a custom matrix. Can that be changed, and/or could it ever cause playback problems?

    On the odd occasion I've had audio sync problems when converting for which I simply cannot find a cause. Sometimes adjusting the frame rate a little fixes it... a few days ago I re-encoded an MKV containing 25fps video as an AVI. To get the audio to sync I had to change the AVI's frame rate to 24.955fps and apply a 100ms delay to the audio, then it was perfect. Probably no help in your case.....
    It appears you'd want to simply use the existing video and audio, but if all else fails..... my last resort audio sync method is to convert the video (and audio) to a lossless AVI using AnyVideoConverter. I don't know what it does to be clever but with it's audio sync setting on maximum (and set to "default" rather than "basic") it always produces an output which is in sync and I can then re-encode the lossless AVI using any software without sync issues. I've used AnyVideoConverter for that reason quite a few times.

    Yes, it does, using MediaInfo audio delay reading. See 'Preferences'/'Audio'/'Auto adjust delay'

    BTW whammoed's mkv does not show any delay.

    That was just something I tried to get it to work correctly. It was not like that the first time I ran it and had the audio sync issue.

  22. I have made a disc successfully using FreemakeVideoConverter. Seems to be a slight loss in quality but this is just to take on vacation and will likely be discarded. I only have a few of these to do for damaged or lost/unreturned discs so I think I can live with it.

    I also had success with multiAVCHD however oddly enough the quality was even worse than FreemakeVideoConverter even though I had seemingly better options to choose the quality.

    I don't know why it wouldn't work with MKVExtractGUI > Rejig. I know it's not the media because the blu ray player showed the same issue with the .vob files playing directly from a SMB share.

    Take a look here: https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/311331-How-to-fix-audio-out-of-sync-in-a-DVD-withou...y-reconverting

    Or download the free trial of VideoRedo TV Suite and run the QuickStream Fix tool and output to a new DVD.
