Audio shift does not work anymore
« on: November 19, 2016, 12:10:48 PM »
Hello,
I have successfully used Avidemux 2.5 in the past to correct an audio shift, and that does not work anymore.

Some online recorders (BONG.TV in my case) generate such files with shifted audio, caused by an delayed first video frame. I am including the MediaInfo output of one of them, below.

I'm not sure what changed, but in the past, I used Avidemnux 2.5.5+_r7664 which was able to correct the shifting. A few weekas ago9, I used that same Avidemux version and it did not work anymore, repeatably. I then upgraded to the latest 2.5 version (2.5.6), and it did not work either. I also tried with Avidemux 2.6.14, and it did not work. I tried both the CLI with a project file to generate the output video, and saving it interactively (although not all combinations of the versions mentioned above, with these two approaches).

This is on Windows 7.

In all cases where it did not work, the audio shift was not eliminated in the output file, and the field
reported by MediaInfo as "Duration_FirstFrame" was not present (which actually makes it worse, because now the file does not even have a marker that the audio is shifted).

In all cases, the audio shift appeared corrected when playing the movie in Avidemux.

Here is the MediaInfo output of one such input file. The "Duration_FirstFrame" field says 706ms, and when setting the audio shift in Avidemux to -706ms, it appeared to be correct.

Is there anything I can do to get this working, or should this be considered a bug?

Please test with the latest release 2.6.15 first (though it doesn't look like audio shift was touched in between) and if the issue persists, please provide a sample (~100MiB from the beginning of the file should be enough) cut in a binary way (not with Avidemux!).

2.5.x is dead, i.e. if something doesn't work right in 2.5.x, no effort will be made to fix it.
