When i export a video the audio isn't synced?

I placed a video into shotcut, and some audio to go along with it, but when i exported the file, the audio was late, but the video was fine, note that they were in different tracks

Why is this a bug?
You haven’t explained anything at all.

Please tell us [much] more

In the picture below, i placed a clip, and edited it a little bit, only cutting it.
I placed audio below it (a hit sound effect in this case) and it synced with the video fine
in shotcut, but when i went to export it, the sound effect was 1 or 2 seconds late.
This happened with all the rest of the seperated audio as well.

Probably the media player you are using. Try another one.

I tried exporting it as a avi file, but I got the same results.

1 or 2 seconds late is really far off! Can you show the audio tab for the properties panel for the sound effect clip? I wonder if there is something unique about the sound effect clip that causes it to be off.

If that helps.

I have been editing this video for about 3 hours now, so it would be satisfactory if i didnt have to start over

Which media player are you using? VLC? Try something different.


Sorry bout that. :confused:

That’s the right one. Nothing unusual there.

Could you share a bare minimum project + clips that reproduce the problem? Ideally, it would be one video clip and one audio clip.

Sorry, the file you are trying to upload is not authorized (authorized extensions: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, ico, tiff, tif, zip, pdf, txt, mlt, edl, rpt, log).
Do i send you the mlt?

There we go.

MLT is just text, you’ll need the associated video and audio files.


The file was too big, so this was the best i could do.

Anything wrong with it?

Patience… I or someone else will get to it at some point.


I cut 2 seconds out of the original video clip in the project to get a smaller file. When I exported it the sound effect does not seem to be lagging at all. The “punch hit effect” coincides with the blows being delivered.

I also put the exported video back in Shotcut on a separate track and everything lined up and played exactly the same as the video in the MLT.

The exported video is here.

And here’s the OP’s original uploaded project (minus 2 seconds) as it plays in Shotcut.
