Have you ever experienced audio and video of a media file not in sync? Now this can be killing the entire experience and can turn watching a video a real nightmare. Now sometimes it may happen for whatever reasons that there is a little mismatch between the audio and video. Under normal circumstances there would be nothing one can do about it, but not for those who use VLC Media Player and have read this blog. Here you are about to learn how to synchronise Audio and Video of a media file.
Go to Synchronisation tab. There you can manually do the Audio Video (A/V) sync by simply adjusting the time. Most videos lack this feature primarily due to difference in FPS or Frames Per Second which causes either the audio or the video lagging behind. To solve this problem in a VLC Player, change the values in Advance option of audio over the Video input pane. Positive value means that Video is lagging and vice versa.
Just below the A/V sync settings, there is Subtitles settings. Now to ensure that the subtitles are in sync with the video, adjust timing in such a way as mentioned above in A/V sync. Here too if the value is positive, it means that the subtitles are running ahead of the video. Bottom of this page you will find subtitle speed. Now here synchronise the subtitle speed to match with the video. This option is amazingly simple and effective and can obviate this problem which happens to due different FPS caused by copying of media files from different sources.
