  1. Hi guys
    Great program thanks HEAPS. !!!

    One thing though – my GoPro camera often records video but the audio is out of sync with a few milliseconds delay so my videos keep looking like a Bruce Lee movie lol
    Yet when I play the videos through VLC they’re perfectly timed so I’m wondering is there anyway I can open the out of sync video / audio file in VLC media player and then just save it to my folder so it saves with he perfectly corrected video to audio syncing ?

    If so, which profile would I use to for video / audio suitable for YouTube etc ?
    H.264 + MP3 ( MP4 ) or or the .265 etc ?
