I've been looking thru the posts hoping to find my answer, but I haven't found it yet. So I figured I will post it. I have a JVC minidv/firewire/ and 4 different software programs. I am capturing the dv-avi without any encoding. When I play the avi, no matter what software I use, I get the same result; terrible choppy audio. In Microsoft MovieMaker2, if I cut the audio track from the video, and play just the audio, it sounds fine. When I play it with the video, it is terrible.
I saw someone posted a similar problem and they said it turned out to be their sound card. Could it be something as simple as the sound card, or the codecs I am using to play the avi.
I have a pentium 4/512 m Rambus/ and plenty of hard drive space. I will admit, the sound card is the only thing I didn't spend money on, because I basically use the machine for work. If it is the sound card, will that effect the final burn to a dvd. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
