Hi, I have a very persistent problem with playback sound. I normally use crunchbang, but was having extensive problems, so I installed kdenlive. I still have the problem, but it is now consistent rather than erratic. I am dealing with an interview where I have broken down the interviewee's comments into 3-4 second clips so I can reasseble them for diffrent purposes. I have tried to find the problem in its simplest form, and have even found it is consistent from a live disk, on 2 diffrent computers. Here is how I replicate it:
I put a clip in the project (nb: the clips play fine in a media player).
I put the clip in the timeline, and play the project.
The sound takes about a second to kick in after it should start BUT when it kicks in, it IS in sync (ie. its not a lag, its actually just not playing the sound at the start of the clip)
The problem can sometimes be overcome by fiddling with the bar which selects when you play from, for example, if you play from the exact begining of the sound starting in the clip, it sometimes plays it fine about 1/3 of the time, but if you start from any earlier or later, the problem is the same.
This problem even persists after rendering, so if I render several clips in a row, and play the video in a media player, the sound is still absent for the first second of each clip, as it was before.
I have tried seperating the sound from the video, as I used to do this to solve lag problems, but its still the same, even with the sound in and audio track rather than a video track.
BUT the music track I have underneath seems to play right from the start. This might be becuase there is no gap between the start of the clip and the sound in that case, most of my other clips have a little bit of either blank space or a pause at the start to give me some extra space for transistions etc.
I reallllly need to fix this so i can get back to work. I am self employed and depend on kdenlive for my job. Does anyone have any clues?
ps: sorry about my spelling, i think my spell check is broken on iceweasel and i am very dyslexic
