Shotcut version 22.04.25
First off, just want to say that I’ve been using Shotcut since the start of the year to grow a YouTube channel. After having used Shotcut to edit over 30 videos now, I wanted to thank everyone that contributes to this project as it is a great piece of software to use and has helped me massively this year.
Just this week, however, it has started playing up for me. When playing back a video in Shotcut (not dragged it into the timeline at this point, just double-clicking a video from the playlist tab) the video lags behind the audio by less than a second or so. Also, the audio would sound ever so slightly slowed down and would be crackling quite loud.
At first, I thought it could have been the video file I was using (.MOV), but it plays fine in VLC. If I use Convert to edit friendly…, the problem still persists when converted to a .MP4.
I have also opened some previously finished projects that have already been exported to YouTube and they have also turned bad and the same thing is now happening to those (video slightly behind, crackly audio).
I am using the latest version of Shotcut. I’ve tried reverting to a previous version, but the problem persists.
I don’t really know where to turn from here, which is why I’m hoping someone in the community will be able to help.
