Many people have stated problems with Videora audio sync problems in iLounge and iPod Hacks forums. A user from iLounge forums has produced a fix which has generated many positive results. There are other fixes, but havn’t been too helpful. We have tested this fix and have approved that it does in fact work. We have also modified the fix instructions to be a little more comprehensive. Hopefully the fix will help you. Here is how to do it:
1) Configure PocketDivXEncoder and Encode Your Video
Download and install PocketDivx Encoder. Once you open the program, click Advanced Options. A window will slide up, check the “Direct Audio Stream Copy” box.
Click Advanced Options again to close the window. Next, click the first icon to the right of the “File to Encode” box. This will allow you to browse and select your video file. Also hit the first icon to the right of the “Output File” box to select your desired output directory. Slide “Video Quality” to 80 and “Brightness” to 25%.
The following step will require you to edit the output dimensions. Click on the “Change” button next to “Output Dimensions.” A window similar to the one below will popup.
You will have to adjust the dimensions depending on the those of your video. Click Apply after adjusting the dimensions. Remember the dimensions you have set as it is required for a later step. Once all this is done you can start encoding the video by hitting the “Encode Now” button. A popup will show once encoding is done. At this point, you can close PocketDivXEncoder.
2) Configure Videora and Convert Video
Download Videora if you don’t already have it. Open Videora and hit the “Setup” tab on the left. Then select the “Profiles” tab on the top. For this fix, you are required to make a new profile so select the “New Profile” button. The “Profile Name” field will be cleared, insert “Custom” into the field.
Set the following fields: Mode to “H264>CBR,” Video Bitrate to “640kbps,” Audio Bitrate to “128kbps,” Aspect Ratio to “1:1,” and Framerate to “Input”. Once you save your profile, go to the convert screen and browse for the .avi file that PocketDivXEncoder created. Select the profile that you created from the drop-down box and start converting! The final video using these options is usually around 500-600mb depending on the length of the movie.
