Andrew E referenced an update 887131 to fix sync problems.

Two questions:

1: Does this work with DirectX 9.0c?
I have seen references to KB831937, but that just works with 9.0, a, and b -
when I try to install it with 9.0c, I get a message that it is already
installed.
A search for downloads containing "887131" comes up empty, as does a search
for "Quartz.dll", as referred to in the only MS page to contain "887131",
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;887131. Since that
page was last reviewed last October, I thought it might be outdated.

2: How can I find this hotfix?
If the update is still current, how do I find it? Since I have an OEM copy
of Windows XP, MS wants to charge for support. (If the update referenced here
is obsolete, they will charge me just to tell me that.)

In case there are other suggestions:
My specific issue - I have captured video to an AVI file, provided by ATI TV
included with the TV Wonder USB 2.0 and updated to the latest version.

I imported this file into WMM (drag-and-drop) and it still played fine from
inside WMM. After dragging the file to the timeline and saving to WMV ("High
quality video (NTSC)"), the audio is now out of sync with the video. My
reason to do so is simply to get a smaller file size (from typical 4-6GB to
typical 1.5-2GB).

Thanks.

The solution suggested by PapaJohn (referenced below) was essentially my
solution - I saw in a post / reference (I believe from PapaJohn,
incidentally) that AVI does not sync the audio with the video, hence there
are inherent sync issues. (Yes, the original file was in sync and WMM should
have kept it in sync, but that's
another matter...) My capture software allows capture as a WMV9 file as well
as AVI. The WMV file was the same size as the AVI file, but different format.
I then used WMM with the same procedures as before, and had no sync issues
this time.

When MS update things, like DirectX, if they have found a problem it will be
addressed in the next update, therefore 9c will have any updates to a nd b
already in it, the reason you get the message it is already installed.
As for teh time lag, what file type is it you are importing into MM?

I was importing an AVI file created by ATI TV 9.08. The original AVI file
plays fine both in WMP and WMM, but the movie created from it by WMM (to get
a smaller file size) is not in sync. I have since started saving from ATI TV
to WMV9 files since WMV files don't have the same problem. (I found out that
AVI files don't have any embedded sync information.)

Thanks.
