Default Video editing software

I have been trying to edit video that I record off of my tv tuner. I have decent software that I have used in the past that came with my tv tuner. ULead Video Studio 7. But now when I want to edit the video and change the image quality, the sound is off by a few seconds. I always record in higher quality, then edit out comercial and shrink it down to a lesser quality. But I get the audio problem no matter what.

Can some one suggest a free program that will allow me to do what I described. Thanks.

http://www.virtualdub.org/download

VirtualDub helps you get video into your computer.
If your capture device is Video for Windows compatible, then VirtualDub can capture video with it. But VirtualDub isn't your average capture program:

Fractional frame rates. Don't settle for 29 or 30 when you want 29.97.

Optimized disk access for more consistent hard disk usage.

Create AVI2 (OpenDML) files to break the AVI 2GB barrier and multiple files to break the FAT32 4GB limit.

Integrated volume meter and histogram for input level monitoring.

Real-time downsizing, noise reduction, and field swapping.

Verbose monitoring, including compression levels, CPU usage, and free disk space.

Access hidden video formats your capture card may support but not have a setting for, such as 352x480.

Keyboard and mouse shortcuts for faster operation. To capture, just hit F6.

Clean interface layout: caption, menu bar, info panel, status bar.


VirtualDub lets you clean up video on your computer.
There are lots of programs that let you "edit" video. And yet, they're frustratingly complex for some of the simplest tasks. VirtualDub isn't an editor application; it's a pre- and post-processor that works as a valuable companion to one:

Reads and writes AVI2 (OpenDML) and multi-segment AVI clips.

Integrated MPEG-1 and Motion-JPEG decoders.

Remove and replace audio tracks without touching the video.

Extensive video filter set, including blur, sharpen, emboss, smooth, 3x3 convolution, flip, resize rotate, brightness/contrast, levels, deinterlace, and threshold.

Bilinear and bicubic resampling -- no blocky resizes or rotates here.

Decompress and recompress both audio and video.

Remove segments of a video clip and save the rest, without recompressing.

Adjust frame rate, decimate frames, and 3:2 pulldown removal.

Preview the results, with live audio.

I downloaded the suggested software and tried it on a mpg video file i recorded, and i get this error message: No video frames found in MPEG file.

Any idea what I am not doing and need to do?

Or a different piece of software for the same purpose?

Thanks.

Convert your MPG files to an AVI format.

I use intervideo win dvd creator. it has no a/v sync issues. you have to pay for it, but I got mine free with this dvd burner. the software that come with it is worth the price alone.

Nero, dvdcopy2, dvd recorder, etc. I paid 700 for my fist dvd burner and it came with crappy software like B's gold
