MPlayer proved to be an even better playback tool the other night.
I pulled in a movie from a vast archive (if you have not visited
www.archive.org you should do so very soon). The audio and video
were out of sync.
ftp://movie0.archive.org/pub/movies/mpeg2/19150.mpg is a delightful
movie/musical from about 1952 but it was apparently damaged when
the transfer from film to MPEG-2 was done.
Using MPlayer's ability to vary the audio delay I was able to
determine that the audio and video were out of synce by .3 seconds.
After that it was a simple matter to demux and remux (using 'mplex'
from the mjpeg.sourceforge.net project) the video and now playback
Thanks A'rpi (and the rest of the MPlayer developers) for a great
program! The command line tools are often the best ;)
