gaps in audio after converting PAL to NTSC

Postby gwoiler » Sat Feb 20, 2010 12:17 am

I have converted a PAL DVD to NTSC. The content is music and there are regular silent gaps about every second or so in the music. Is there a way around this? Is this from extra frames being added? Thanks for your help. I am using version 2.2.....

Please post the log file of your problematic conversion. It's in Help>Open Log File.

That might not necessarily help, and of course he'd have to pay for the new version and may be satisfied with v.2.

Upgrading will fix this? I bought this about 2 years and it worked fine, but it was not music.

Try with the trial version of V4 if it fixes your problem. Does not cost you a dime. (just don't burn it, play VIDEO_TS.IFO in a software player to check.)

Hi all... OK, I got the latest version and tried it. Still very quick gaps in the audio about every second or so. Its just a minor glitch and maybe is not noticeable in just talking heads, but very noticeable with constant music. Bummer! :cry: I figure when I convert from PAL to NTSC that extra frames are created and something is going awry with the sound. Too bad I could not somehow strip the audio from the old and marry it to the converted video? That possible?

Please do as I asked and post the log file of your problematic conversion. You should now post the one from your v.2 conversion and your v.4 trial conversion. Otherwise you're just forcing us forum volunteers to waste time guessing.

It is possible, with external tools, but most likely will not help.


I have converted several music DVDs to PAL and to NTSC, and no problems. Your logs might reveal cause for your problem.

Hi again... I converted just the menu this morning... as, it has music and exhibits the same problem. I could not find where VSO2 puts the log file. They were not in the directory as VSO4 was. So here is the log file from vso4. Also, this is a normal video DVD with music as the soundtrack... nothing wierd.... just a normal PAL DVD. Although the file I encoded this morning is only 30 seconds long, it glitched the same way.

That's not the log we need. Go to Help>Open Log File and the log will open in a text editor. You can save it as a txt file and attach it here. ConvertX writes to the same log regardless of which version of ConvertX you're using, so the v.2 conversion will show up in the same log as the v.4 conversion.

It would have to be video, not mp3 music files. PAL and NTSC doesn't apply to audio, just video.

im saying this because if he has problems like that
but only for this specific concert,
he can always rip it to AVI and then use VirtualDub to sync the Audio...

all this is very very easy to do,,,,

then he can convert it back to DVD!
