A VIDEO question (AVI format) - this is for my instructable which is nearly finished....

The video I worked so hard on, and still have a copy of on my computer at home, does not sound as loud nor is the audio synched with the video once it got loaded into youtube.

Anyone know what could have happened ?

Here is the mess it became:

*Sigh* You're not the only one. I'm doing a documentary on the school play. All of the audio is just a few seconds out of sync with the video. This equates to hours and hours of work manually re-syncing microsecond by microsecond. If I don't have a definite point of reference (loud noise with an obvious start *example- a clap*) it takes even longer. Just one microsecond off and it still looks off. I'm using Final Cut Express for the Mac, BTW.
And I only have a few hours left to do a two minute demo tape for my TSota application. I got the sketch showing what I hope two achieve there done.
All this work/stress is obviously getting to me (The Two, in the above statement is to).

Could it be that my upload to YouTube didn't finish properly ? I mean, it took Sooo long, maybe something hiccupped during the process (I hate the thought of trying a 5th time *sigh*, but if I must...).
It probably is a glitch with YouTube. Or it just doesn't like something with you're video (format, etc). It seems like you're video is taking way longer then it should to upload for a 30 second video.

Uploads usually take 1-5 minutes per MB on a high-speed connection, and converting your video takes a few minutes.

Your video is limited to 10 minutes and 100 MB.

For more details about uploading videos, see the Help Center.

Meh, I don't know much about YouTube.

I have gotten it down to an art (of sorts). Getting my CAM to take a decent set of shots is much more difficult :-)

Well, I am at that point that I could start spitting nails any moment now :-)

But I just don't understand what happened. It works if I play the original, but once uploaded to YouTube, it got WAY out of synch. It takes Soooo long to upload one too *sigh* that one was my 4rth attempt of the day, and about 4 hours of work with just uploading, not to mention the actual making them

I've run smack into the same issues, but with google video. Uploading taking 3-4 hours (even with the external stand-alone upload tool), then 15-20 hours for post-upload processing--for only 20mb files. Some not showing up at all...

So I switched to youtube...which is where you're having similar problems. (???)

RE: the sound issue--
I use an inexpensive digital for video, and the files won't work with the cheap Windoz editing software...So, I'd convert to another codec with virtualdub or avidemux.

Then the sound wouldn't work with some players. And video uploads would be distorted, or poorly synced.

I finally found SUPER ©, and use that to convert all my videos before uploading (that's SUPER (C) --if the copyright symbol doesn't display. Preview comment seems to be broken right now....)

The Website, it's a free download.

Yes, I have that, but haven't fooled with it much (lack of time and all), and the last time I fired it up, it asked me to update it, then that failed, and then it said it couldn't run the old version, then it launched it (I am soooo confusssed !). So, you say you "convert" the videos; to what ?
