My searching through the 'net suggests that this newsgroup may be my best
chance at solving a problem I seem to have...
I have been trying to figure out how to play back my AVI files without the
video deciding to skip at every opportunity.
Let me try to describe this as best I can:
1. On one file, the audio keeps playing as normal, while the video keeps
increasingly going out of synch.
2. Another file does something similar, only it seems to resynch audio/video
for a few seconds then gives me the same problem as 1
3. Yet another file decides to play normal up to a point, then the video
stutters out of synch while audio keeps playing fine.
Strangely enough, it seems to happen to AVI files that have relatively good
picture quality, and I would rather not degrade that quality to play them
All of it was working for me just fine until I had to replace my
motherboard, then it started going screwy.
I have not had the opportunity to test all my AVI's but I think the same
thing may well be happening in them, even if it isn't immediately evident.
In all cases, it started out just fine, then synch went out the window maybe
30 seconds-1 minute into the AVI.
Could it be some sort of memory problem? I don't think my video card is at
fault since that is working fine...
Any help would be appreciated in this
