I'm desperately trying to sync the audio of this video file...

- The first audio needs to be slowed down to fit the second video, that's for sure.
- The first video is low-res, and the second one is 1080p.
- So at first I thought it was a mere 25 -> 23.976 fps problem, but it wasn't. The audio shift is much smaller (progressive shift, the max delay is about 6 seconds towards the end for a 55 min video).
- So I also tried 24 -> 23.976, but it wasn't either.
- Some calculations show that the needed duration factor seems to be around 1.002 (the audio should be stretched by that factor), but that factor doesn't match anything that I'm used to. I may be missing something.
I'm not used to reading Mediainfo details, so I don't know what may be wrong nere.
Could you please help ? Many thanks in advance !
PS : please don't mind the total duration of each file, as there are different credits. What matters is that the videos are identical until about 1 min from the end. That's what really matters. That means the audio starts at the same moment (no audio delay at the beginning), and once synced, the audio should remain OK until about 1 min from the end, which would be good enough for me.

If it was just a factor of the audio length, the sync should go out further (either ahead or behind) the further into the
video you go. Sometimes there is a join at a specific point in the video which throws it out right there.
You don't really say what results you're getting but if it's in sync for a passage then suddenly goes out, you may need to divide
it there and work on the pieces separately - then join them together when their done
An alternative is to post the whole of the video and the new audio let somebody else take a look
Thanks for your reply. I really think that it IS just a factor of the audio length, but I'd like to understand what's going on.
I could post the whole audio 1 + video 2 (it's about 800 MB to I could easily give a download link), but would that be allowed?
It's a TV show episode from 1 or 2 years ago. Audio 1 is a french track, and video 2 is a 1080p english version. I'd like to add the french track to the video 2 for personal purposes.

Sure, I understand. Well, let's not risk it then.
My GF has the media, but I guess it doesn't count since we live miles apart.
Anyway, thanks for trying to help.
PS : it's not even the show I'm interested in (I've already seen it in english). It's more about the technical mystery of being unable to sync the audio. I don't know where that unusual factor comes from, and the two Mediainfo don't tell me much.

Both movies are 23.976 fps, so there is no need to slowing or speeding up anything, but the first has a duration of 53 min 52 s and the second of 55 min 9 s.
So the first audio is to short for the second video.
You can search the correct audio delay with VLC player

ProWo, like I said in my first post, "please don't mind the total duration of each file, as there are different credits".
Anyway, I finally found the problem. One of the videos had a 6-second additional title about 3 min into the video.
Nevermind. You got it already.
