Hi there. This is my first time posting to the forum. I upload stuff to the Internet Archive such as old software, vinyls, and VHS tapes before I stopped the latter for a bit. My transfers at the time were garbage, and I've been meaning to get back at it lately by doing things correctly for the most part this time around.
I've followed Notelu's Ultimate VHS Capture Guide
, the only differences in terms of software being using VirtualDub2 rather than VirtualDub
AIO, as well as using the Lagarith codec instead of UT Video T2 YUV422 BT.601 VCM.
I've tried recording two tapes now, both times the video itelf seemed fine, but issues in audio arose with the audio lagging behind the video in the first recording, and a "helium" effect in the latter where the voices become obnoxiously high pitched at seemingly random points before returning to normal.
Would this be a hardware sided issue, or a software sided one? I don't have the best equipment for this task since it's mostly a "get it up sooner than later and worry about the top-notch details later" situation. I am using a Sanyo VWM-900 VCR, no TBC, and a Hauppauge USB Live 2 capture card via Composite connection.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
