Audio not in sync with its video

Post by ahalm093 » Mon Oct 01, 2018 1:21 am


Recently I have been having this issue where if I import a video into Cubase Pro 9.5, the audio of that video will be out of sync. The audio will be ahead by about 5 seconds and will be missing the first few seconds of the audio. Furthermore, if I open a video on Windows’ default video player...the same thing happens, and if I use QuickTime to watch a video, the audio is somehow in sync perfectly I’m wondering if it’s a windows problem and not Cubase but I figured I would ask here anyway.

Just to note: I have windows 10, and have imported videos to Cubase and haven’t seen this problem until recently. Thank you.

What video codec do you use, please? Where was the video rendered (which application)? What is the frame rate? What is the Sample Rate of the sound in the video, and what is the Sample Rate of your project and your Audio Device? Are all of these in sync?
