What is your operating system? Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64bit
What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit? Shotcut version 19.10.20
Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps? I’m making a gaming montage so having the video go along with the music is critical. When editing it looks fine, it’s all synced and everything is great. However, when I export it (I export it with the YouTube preset and don’t change any of the settings) it goes out of sync. It’s only by a few hundred milliseconds to a second but it makes the montage look terrible and a lot less satisfying. The music file is .mp3 if that helps. I also converted it to the edit-friendly format. Any advice?
I would definitely not rely on the WMP! I’ve known this for years and I’ve always been unreliable in playing content. It also connects permanently to the internet to check if the codecs are up to date and much more!
That’s why I never let this WMP on my hard drive!
I found differences in the playback of some of my videos between different players.
I used to trust that VLC playback would have fewer problems than playing those videos in the Windows 10 “photo” and “movie and TV” applications.
However, there were videos that had jumped forward in VLC and yet went smoothly in the other players mentioned above.
I then disabled de-interlacing in VLC and it worked fine. But I did not activate this function, it was the default.
Also, software and driver updates can be a bit of a culprit.
Normally I use OBS for my captures playing on Rocksmith, however lately it wasn’t working well, now I use ShareX and I don’t know exactly why but it works better.
Maybe tomorrow will be different and the updates (always updating things) will make me have to change the procedure again.
Thanks @dvs and @ejmillan. I’ve always used WMP without thinking. I’m hoping it may solve the audio lag issue that many users have commented on. I’ve only recently found out about PotPlayer and it looks really good. I’m thinking of setting it as my default player. I’ll also look into VLC and SM-Player.
Yes, the DX7 sound is a classic!! Full performance here:
(Yes I know my keyboard is slanted - and also my flute nearly drops off the keyboard during the performance … )
