I found when the capture hiccups (drops frames), from that point forward you lose sync. I recaptured the same video sequence making sure there was no hardrive activity to interfere with the capture process, had zero dropped frames, and perfect output to vcd.

You can fix (sort of) the sync problem by using your fast forward button on your dvd remote. Skip forward a second or two and the video and audio will be back in sync.

Of course on your computer's software decoder, it can resync even if there are dropped frames. But the DVD player can't do it.

I went through about 10 CDRs, and recaptures till I figured it out.

Of course, if you go through a lot of trouble to separate the audio, resync it, reform your mpg file, it will be fixed. But gosh, that's a lot of CPU time.

Just DON'T touch your computer while it's capturing. Check for dropped frames when the capture is done. If dropped frames, repeat.
