Every time I import videos to splice together to make one movie the audio is twice as fast as the movie so it just sounds like I'm watching chickmunks. I have Windows Movie Maker on my Desktop with XP Pro and it creates them just fine. I have a Inspiron 4150 1.8ghz, 384Meg of ram, DVD, XP Home. Desktop is a Dimension XPS B series 800mhz, 128Meg of ram, DVD, CD-RW, XP Pro. I've tried it on many numerous clips and it always does the same thing. Thanks in advance
Just like to add that I've had similar problems with Movie Maker & many other programs.
The only program that works for me is Adobe Premiere, which is the biggest over-kill in the history of the Universe for what I want to achieve. Even then, it only works after I have installed the necessary missing codecs. Installing those codecs into the other programs still does not make them work correctly.
I see that there is a new version of Movie Maker on the way - hopefully better luck with this version!
Try updating your audio and video drivers. You should be able to find and download any necessary drivers for your system in the Dell File Library. Just go to our website at the following address:
Insert your system's service tag in the text box labeled "Enter your Service Tag" and click the "Go" button. You will be given a list of files and drivers specific to your system. If you do not have your Service Tag available you can simply choose your Dell system model from one of the drop down menus.
I have exactly the same audio synchronization problem with Windows Movie Maker. I've updated my video and auio drivers as suggested but that hasn't worked. Any more suggestions?
I've found a partial fix. I reinstalled Windows XP and that seemed to do the trick--all of a sudden the audio syncro problem disappeared.. However, when I started reloading the various programs that came with my computer, I discovered that loading my DVD software (Interactual WinDVD) caused the problem to re-occur. If I restore the computer to a time before I loaded the WinDVD, the problem goes away again. So WinDVD is the problem.Without it, I can edit my movies without any problems.
That doesn't completely solve my problem since it means I have to make achoice. I can either edit movies using Movie Maker or watch DVDs using WinDVD. But I can't have both programs.
So I have another (less annoying) problem. Anybody suggest how to proceed?
Thanks in advance
Have you tried applying the latest patch to your WinDVD software?
It sounds like one of your audio codecs has been corrupted. You may want to try using the Windows XP System Restore utility to revert your system's software configuration to a time previous to when the problem first occurred. If even this doesn't help, a complete Operating System reinstall will most likely fix it.
i have the same problem as guid069, was there a final solution to this problem as ive been trying to fix it for ages. i have a new inspirion 8200 and no one has helped so far, can you please? thanks
I am having this exact same problem with no solution. Please advise.
ok, i have figured out a solution
1. the WinDVD is not compatible with Windows Movie Maker
2. you MUST delete WinDVD (Dell Technical Support is no help past this point)
3. of course, this eliminates your ability to play DVDs
4. go to the Intervideo website and download the latest 'platinum' version - it is compatible with Movie Maker and does not translate everyone into chipmunk language
5. send donations to NAMI :)
This is a repost from a Google group by a guy at PapaJohn@CharterMI.net.
I have tried all of this and still have "not responding" problems with wmm, but for a while disabling the divxaf.ax file worked so I think I have other problems.
PapaJohns repost ---------->
The two most common reasons for MM2 crashes/lockups/audio issues are thecomputer's hardware acceleration setting and MM2 clashing with .ax files inother software.You can test either or both fairly easily and quickly without rebooting.Hardware Acceleration===================Try changing your hardware acceleration to the number 3 position. Rightclick on the Desktop > Properties > Settings > Advanced > TroubleshootThe Hardware acceleration slider goes in 6 notches from None to Full. Thenotches correspond to:1 - None - Disable all accelerations. Use this setting only if your computerfrequently stops responding or has other severe problems.2 - Disable all but basic accelerations. Use this setting to correct moresevere problems.3 - Disable all DirectDraw and Direct3D acceleration, as well as all cursorand advanced drawing accelerations. Use this setting to correct severeproblems with DirectX accelerated applications.4 - Disable all cursor and advanced drawing accelerations. Use this settingto correct drawing problems.5 - Disable cursor and bitmap accelerations. Use this setting to correctproblems with the mouse pointer, or to correct problems with corrupt images.6 - Full - All accelerations are enabled. Use this setting if you computerhas no problemsClashing with .ax codec files=======================A review of the last thousands of posts to themicrosoft.public.windowsxp.moviemaker newsgroup shows that MM2 can clashwith one or more .ax files.Check these first. Find them on your computer, rename them to something like*.ax_ and then see if MM2 works OK. If these don't resolve your issue, youmight try renaming additional .ax files.claud.ax - MPEG codec re-distributed by PowerDVD - check Cyberlink for apatch that resolves this - PDVDxp4_Patch_2417.exe - this is an audio decoderclvsd.ax - MPEG codec re-distributed by PowerDVD - maybe the Cyberlink patchresolves this one toocmaudio.ax - from C-Media Inc. (sound card, or audio chip)divxaf.ax - 'Digital Anti-Freeze' - part of the Nimo Codec package - causescrashes when trying to preview or play transitions and effects
iviaudio.ax - ships with WinDVD (effects MP3 files over 160kbps - chipmunksounds, clipping sounds) - installed in a couple folders - also found inInterVideo and GraphEdit folders - this is an audio decodermmswitch.ax - from the SLD codec pack (version 1.5 of the SLD codec packwith mmswithc.ax 0.9.7.0, seems OK, need cofirmation of other versions thatresult in the problem)subtitds.ax - installed by SLD Codec pack - in System32 folderwtwmplug.ax - apparently associated with Wild Tangent gamesIt's' best to first rename all of those you have from the above list, incase MM2 clashes with more than one. If MM2 works OK after renaming them,you might rename them back, one at a time, until you determine which one(s)are clashing. Then think about how to continue to use MM2 and the othersoftware that uses the .ax file(s). You can leave the files on your computerand use MM2 or the other software, but not both at the same time.If you find that renaming a different .ax file than these resolves yourproblem, please let us know by posting onmicrosoft.public.windows.moviemaker or sending me an email.PapaJohn
