Hello

I just received a Casio EX-S600 as a gift. I made several videos and
then downloaded them to my computer. I played them on Windows Media Player. The problem is that the audio and the video do not match. The sound is much faster than the video. On the camera playback all is fine with video and sound matching. Any suggestions to remedy this problem? I am using a Sandisk 1GB SD card. Thank you. :sad:

Sincerely,
JJ

Update the Windows Media Player if you haven't already done that.

I have tried the update and that did not help. It appears that something is happening from the D/L from the camera to the computer. Could it be that the SD card is not transferring properly? Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Jeff

NEED HELP! I have tried everything including calling Casio. Their rep said that one of their experts will need to call me back. I installed a new driver even though I am sure that the old driver for the sound card was the new one. I tried taking a new video today and the same thing happened. The video either lags behind the audio by about 10 seconds or more or the audio starts before the video. I need help bad! Someone must know what to do. Perhaps Steve himself? Sincerely, Jeff

This is a common issue with many digital cameras that make video clips. You can correct this with the following freeware called MP4CAM2AVI:

http://mp4cam2avi.sourceforge.net/

This program "converts" many types of MPEG-4 video (MP4, MOV, MJPEG) to DIVX/XVID AVI files. If you are not sure your Windows Media Player supports DIVX/XVID video, you should download and install the codec as well:

www.divx.com
(decoder is free but encoder is not; previous divx codecs v.5 or later "phone home" (spyware?) but I have never used any later versions since then)

http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Koepi_XviD.htm
(XVID is an open source free codec - there are two main authors and this is the latest/ last version)

Read the user manual of MP4CAM2AVI - to correct the video-audio synch problem:

Click "Right pane" in the left menu under "User Manual", and look for "audio track delay, ms" under "Advanced options"

When using the MP4CAM2AVI program, you can find the function here:

Under "audio format" in top right, click "use advanced settings", then click "Advanced settings" button

Hope this helps.
