video and audio out of sync
by Matthews Michelle on Monday May 22nd 2017, 2:51
Conversion worked but audio and video are violently out of sync. Tried output to MP4. It seems the video is converting at a much slower rate than the audio resulting in the non-sync. The audio finishes 8-10 seconds before the video on a one-and-a-half minute clip. What am I doing wrong? I used to convert video with a free web-based application called Acethinker Video Converter, never had that problem.
Update on 2.9.6 testing

I played with the settings further and disabled both the completion and error sounds. This stopped the error dialog/crash. Clicking on the "Output Folder" button in the main toolbar will cause the same error screen but will not crash the app.
