I am a YouTube musician. When I go to record I find it easiest to use the video feature in Photo Booth. However, ever since I upgraded to Mountain Lion my audio and video in my videos has been off of one another. They start off together but by the end of the video the audio is ahead of the video. When I went to try and see where it messes up I found that the video jumps frames creating almost a transition effect. I don't know how to fix this and would really like your help!

    I also have this very same problem. Only started after upgrading to Mountain Lion. My Mac is 1 year old with plenty of disck space remaining.

    Any help out there?

    Yeah this kb article doesnt really address the issue. It isnt a problem with isight. its an issue with photobooth. Also, the second article you sourced is incredibly outdated. 

  • smogfalls Level 1 (0 points)

    yep, and this thread had the most relevent first post. When I checked the related threads, there weren't quite as relevant to my particular problem as this one was/is.

     

    Cheers

    I have this problem too. I have already done the resetting of those technical things by shutting the MacBook Pro down and starting it up again holding keys down, and just now I reset permissions, but in fact after resetting permissions the audio is more out of synch than ever - like 2-3s off! It's a PhotoBooth thing for me too. I use this to compose... help!

  • dylangw Level 1 (0 points)

    related posts were no help, and it isnt iSight, I've never had this issue before Mountain Lion.

    Singerman13:

     

    First check that your hard disk is not getting full.

     

    Then, if restarting Mac and recording again with ONLY your Photo Booth app open doesn't fix the problem, see if something from one of these previous threads re: audio sync helps you:

    I use photo booth very frequently. I did not have this issue until I too upgraded to mountain lion.

     

    I shall be trying all of the 'resets' recommended in various posts but I have yet to see anyone reply with a "that worked" so I'm not too hopeful (but I'll post again if it does work.)

     

    In the meantime I have been using iMovie to edit my photobooth films... I import the photobooth film, drag and drop it in my project. Turn the sound off of it, then drag and drop the film AGAIN (on top of itself) as an "audio only" then edit and drag the audio portion around until it matches up. It's not a fix, but a temporary solution if you're in a hurry and can't use something else.

  • smogfalls Level 1 (0 points)

    Would be interested to hear if anyone has found a solution to this.

     

    This is getting ridiculous for me now and is affecting the audio sync of everything from movies, to youtube videos! My 2011 iMac has plenty of HDD space left aswell as a healthy amount of RAM and this has only started to happen since upgrading to Mountain Lion. I'm very disappointed with the complete lack of Apple Support on this issue. It's clearly an issue related directly to Mountain Lion, and it's a big issue for me... not something I can simply ignore.

    Thanks,

    Alex

    If you are still under warranty or have Apple Care, call them.  Otherwise,  take the computer to an Apple store or an AASP.  Whichever is more convenient for you.
