Audio Distortions When Joining Multiple Clips
« on: December 15, 2018, 09:07:52 PM »
Hi Guys.
I like to join and edit multiple clips from different sources but run into trouble with the audio streams.
I usually re-encode all the clips to xvid 4 and the audios to Mp3.
When I edit and join them, the audio becomes severely muffled and distorted in some of the joined clip segments. Some parts are normal and others not.
I thought by making them all mp3's it would solve  the problem but alas no.
I can't figure out why the audio streams are seemingly incompatible even through I have changed them all to Mp3?

When appending videos, the number of audio tracks, the channel layout and sampling frequency must match. The output codec doesn't matter.

Just in case: does audio sound fine when playing individual files? In doubt please try the latest nightly matching your operating system.

Yes, individually the audios are fine but when attempting to join them, they distort from one to the next.
 As you said I may need to look at the sampling frequency etc to see if they match and if not sort out how to make them the same.
