In video we often forget about how important audio actually is. When we’re made aware of it, it’s a relief to get it right.

But for a couple of years now, thousands have been suffering in silence, even with superb audio, because they chose to do their videos live. And not because the audio itself is bad, but because it’s out of sync with the video.

Little is more annoying to a viewer than being out of sync with the person they’re watching. It happened to me last week. I recorded a video that had been live-streamed to BE recorded.

What I didn’t realize was that the video would have been live-streamed with the same deficiency! And also that no one had a proper solution to it. Well, maybe for OBS if you had a Doctorate in Quantum Physics, but for ordinary mortals, forget abut it!

And there is nothing to make it right in Zoom.

So I decided to solve the problem myself. Here’s the result. It has the great advantage of being possibly the simplest fix you’ll ever see for anything in video.

And here’s a handy search for the BlueAVS Capture Card mentioned in the video.

      Just in time with this solution, as I was down to my last few hairs after pulling the rest out by the roots!
      I have stopped using Wirecast because of this audio lag issue and often have to download the live after it’s done and then re sync and upload it again ugg.
      Thanks Steven.
      I will see what the settings are for Wirecast. Thank you. As always simple is the way of the genius at Visible Authority.
