The MPC HC (Media Player
Classic Home Cinema) stands strong among major media player for
Windows.

So, today we going to learn how to fix audio and
video out of sync using the MPC HC Player.
Syncing of audio and video are processes that
should have taking place during the editing process. Most modern and good
budget movies do not usually come with this problem, but old movies and some
hard coded movies when been converted do have this syncing error. Some poorly
edited movies and just some recorded speeches might come having this problem.
In fact, some of the audio and video sync
(synchronization) problem might occur due to change of frame rate while editing
or when converting the video from one format to another.
So this tutorial will guide us on how to fix audio
and video out of sync with the MPC HC player using keyboard shortcut or hotkeys.
Using keyboard shortcut keys will not generally
affect you while watching the video and it will be faster, so let’s get
started.
These are the processes that is needed to be
taken:
1.  The MPC HC player has inbuilt keyboard shortcut, but the audio sync is
not given a keyboard shortcut, so we are going to create one. But you can check
my tutorial on top MPC HC keyboard shortcut or hotkeys.
2.  So first of all, launch the MPC HC, press O on your keyboard, it will
load up the Options.

choose a value of ctrl + shift + 1 and it will be set.

2

Shift + 2
Audio Delay – 10ms
The keyboard shortcut or hotkeys required for this
process are ctrl + shift + 1 and ctrl + shift + 2, using the timing of 5
seconds.
Ctrl + Shift + 1 stands for audio delay up, should
be used when audio is slower than video.
Ctrl + Shift + 2 stands for audio delay down, should
be used when audio is faster than video.
So hope you have been able to fix your out of sync
audio and video using the MPC HC (Media Player
Classic Home Cinema) player.

    Hello, and thanks for the clear instructional note. My question is whether you can change the jumps for the audio delay from the 10 ms level. I am interested in changing it to +50 sec and -50 sec. For some research I am doing.

    Thanks in advance!

      Sorry, of course I meant ±50 msec. (Love autocorrect!)

        Sorry, it is only available for 10 ms, that is audio delay. Will research and check back to update your request if found? Thanks James
