I have discovered a problem with many of my avi files when I try to use them on a hardware player. The files play fine under windows but stutter so badly they are unwatchable.
I am partway to a solution. I have discovered that the ripping tool I have been using - Magic DVD ripper 5 - adds a lot of crap into the file which windows can cope with but the hardware player cant. I need to "remux" the files and "remove junk" and there's one remaining outstanding problem. After doing this the soundtrack is out of sync with the video by a second or two when played on the hardware player (still plays fine on windows). So the problems I want to solve in order of priority are
1. How do I get the audio and video re-synced
2. Can anyone point me to a tool that will remux and remove junk and incorporates whatever the answer is to point 1 AND (this is the important bit) will do it in batch - I have over a thousand files to apply this to.
Any tips on a better ripping tool (pref open source) would also be appreciated
