Yeah... that's the best I could describe my problem, but I'll go into detail now...
Since it's a problem with audio recording, I figured it should be OK to post here.
This problem has only occurred twice so far, so it's somewhat random, but the problems it causes is huge.
I record playthroughs for YouTube with commentary, and use Audacity for the commentary track. What I do is start the video recording then start the audio recording 5 seconds later. So the audio SHOULD be shorter than the video. For example...
Video = 00:45:15 long
Audio = 00:45:10 long
However, in this case, the audio recording is actually the SAME LENGTH as the video, despite the audio being started last and stopped first. It's as if the audio is recording at a faster rate than it's supposed to.
I've been using Audacity and recently tried AVS Audio Recorder, but it's exactly the same problem. Once I've placed the files in my video editor, the audio file is insanely longer than the video, so it they don't sync up properly, resulting in me having to delete everything and start again.
Does anyone have any possible idea as to what could be causing this? As I've said, it rarely happens, and nothing is changed on my laptop or Windows when it does happen... it's just purely random.
Any help or tips or anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
