    Hi, I have a .avi video file which has the sound playing around 2 or 3 seconds after the image. I have tried playing the video in 3 different players: wm player, divx player, and a dvd player, and it happens in all 3. I do not know anything about this so I need some help fixing this. I searched all 3 players for some kind of option which would let me start the image or the sound at different times so that I could sync them myself, but I did not find it. Is there a player which does this? Or is there a way to change the .avi itself to correct the problem and have the video play properly in all players?

    Thank you.

    Try editing it in virtualdub: http://www.virtualdub.org/

    Open th file in virtualdub and go to file>save wav And save the audio. Open the audio file in a audio editor like Audacity, http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Edit out 3 seconds and save the audio file.

    Go back to Virtualdub and onthe top click audio>wav audio and select the file you have edited in Audacity. Check video>direct stream copy , then file>save as AVI and save the file. Open in your media player, you can repeat this process until you get it right...

    I don't use this method since I have a professional editor so there may be some pitfalls. I really can't think of any other way though of fixing something like that without purchasing a decent editor.
