VirtualDub - Fix the audio offset of your DivX videos

September 2017




The audio offset of Divx, mkv or other video files, may be due several factors:
  • Hardware issues: Try to test the file on a more powerful PC
  • Obsolete codecs (video / audio). It is recommended to download and install the latest versions of codecs.
  • Software issue: Download VLC (natively supports many formats):
  • A poorly encoded video. In this case, it is possible to use a tool to re-sync the audio and video:

In the third case, there are two possible scenarios :
  • The sound and video will gradually shift and the offset will gradually increase over time.
  • There's a fixed offset between the sound and video.


Gradual shifting of audio and video

  • Launch VirtualDub
  • From the File menu, click Open video file and select the video file.
  • In the Video menu, select Direct stream copy, and then click Frame Rate. In the window and open, select "adjust framerate to match audio and video".
  • In the Audio menu, select Direct stream copy, then choose the audio source
  • Click on OK and save the file

Fixed offset between audio and video

  • Launch VirtualDub
  • From the File menu, click Open video file and select the video file.
