This has had some work done with the audio (boosted 18 [yes, 18!] dB, constant whine at 15620hz removed, noise reduction). This has resulted in much improved audio compared to the original but no matter what I do there seems to be a slight sync problem with the audio (Yes it did come out the same length it went in wink.gif ). It's not a major annoyance just at times you will notice slight lag of about 0.25 secs with the audio then it catches up again ... The fun of old VHS rips from broken tapes (this one had the tape door missing and a crinkled bit where the pic goes a wee bit 'messy' ...)!
Please note that this is encoded with packed bitstream and may be incompatible with some standalone players. This will be rectified in future releases...
