Default audio and video unsyncronized

Hi all :

I´m new to this forum and digital video.
I have a problem with a movie I have.
My PC is an old Celeron 466 with 160 Mbytes RAM and 1024x768 screen size. CDROM is x 40
The movie is in *.avi format. The codec needed to see it is XviD which I installed first.
To see the movie I use the Windows Media Player 9.
I can see the movie, but sound is some 2 to 5 second later than the image.
Besides, the playback has breaks, where the HardDisk works a lot. Also, during the whole 2 hours playback, the Hard Disk shows constant activity.

Don't use WMP 9.0.

Instructions:
1. Install FFDShow
2. Use either BSPlayer, Media Player Classic or MV2 Player for playback.
3. If all else fails, get a new computer.

Btw, turn off all unnecessary programs in the background.

Default audio and video unsyncronized

Hi WildmanJoe :

I have already installed BSPlayer in my PC, but I have no video when I play the same movie.
I could not find the reason why I can see and hear the movie with WMP9, but without video with BSPlayer.
Also, some other movie, also in avi format, has no video with BSPlayer.
BSPlayer seems to be a nice player, but without video, unusable.
I´ll thank you a lot if I can avoid using WMP9.

I`ve solved the problem with the BSPlayer.
The video resolution I`m using in my PC is 1024 x 768.
With this screen configuration BSPlayer cannot reproduce video. I`ve changed to 640 x 480 and the BSPLayer now shows the video and the audio is syncronized.

Default problema muy comun

Eduardo, tu problema (la falta de sincronia entre el video y el audio), es uno de los mas comunes en divx.
Se debe basicamente a que este tipo de formato de pelicula consume muchos recursos de la maquina, especialmente del procesador, y tu computadora, muy parecida a la mia, no es de las mas potentes.
El WMP no es una buena opcion para divx, los mejores reproductores (para mi) son el bsplayer, el radlight y ultimamente estoy usando el Crystal Player que creo que es el mejor de todos por muchas razones, pero especialmente porque utiliza mas los recursos de video que de procesador, eso hace que las peliculas se vean perfecto incluso en maquinas no del todo nuevas.
La direccion para bajarlo es:
http://www.crystalplayer.com
cualquier duda o problema que tengas mandame un mail a:
gsacomani@yahoo.com.ar
tengo como 100 peliculas y creo que ya tuve todos los problemas conocidos en este formato asi que te puedo ayudar si te surje alguno.
saludos Germán

Gracias Germán.
Voy a bajarme el crystalplayer a ver que tal.
Con el BSPlayer todo bien, pero tengo que bajar la resolución a 640 x 480. Con el WMP no necesitaba bajarle la resolución, pero solo podía verlo en chiquitito.
Lo bueno del BSPlayer es que me deja pegar los subtítulos en formato srt, cosa que el WMP no tiene esa funcionalidad.
El Crystalplayer tambien lo permite ?

El Crystal solo tiene problemas con los subtitulos en formato txt, pero se soluciona cambiandolé la extensión.

Thumbs up crystal player

Germán :

El crystal player es una masa !
La versión 1.5 que baje tiene solo 722 Kbytes.
Con él andan todas las películas y clips que tengo.
Pega solo los archivos de subtítulos si los encuentra en el mismo subdirectorio en que está la película.
Además, funciona en 1024 x 768, que es la config que uso en el monitor, sin embargo, en 640 x 480, se ve mejor, porque no tiene problemas de velocidad.

Gracias.

emoreira.....

as you stated bs player is the choice because it can display *srt
and many more subtitles....without the need of vodsub filter

have you noticed that you can leave your system display setting
at 1024x768

in the options-->preferences of bsplayer in the general category you can set bsplayer to change resolution either at start or
at fullscreen mode....the resolution change will be reversed
when bs player is terminated....by the way there are direct show
filters for most codecs available that suit better for lower machines

cheeck the nimo and tsunami filter and codec pack and the resolution change thing might seize at all

HI shiny#3 :

I´ll repeat my last post as it´s in spanish.
I´ve downloaded the crystalplayer. It´s great.
This player allows me to play all the movies and video clips I have in the original monitor resolution.
I know that BSplayer can change the monitor resolution, but I had a bad experience when the resolution did not go back to the original.
A second point is that crystalplayer loads itself the subtitles file if it´s called as the movie file with the srt extensionand if it´s in the same directory.BSplayer needs manual action toload the subtitles file.
Anyway, changing resolution to 640 x 480 is the best option for old PCs to aviod speed problems.
