    I have the same exact problem. The audio isn't in sync with the video. The audio is ahead of the video.

I have a microsoft HD Lifecam and during playback of recorded videos, sometimes the audio and video are not in sync. we have new PC's with 4gb running win xp. doesn't happen all the time. any thoughts ?...

The problem isn't your webcam, it is the software that is recording it. The software is separating the video stream and the audio stream. Look for a software package that records in Flash, which combines the streams.

Audio starts before the video, how do I fix?

Hello dagmarss hi, my guess is that your PC is to slow to process the video part of the film, its either you upgrade your PC, video card, on board RAM, and scan your PC with antivirus software. Another choice is copy the film on a flash drive and have it viewed on another PC with good processing powess. (Just to see if the problem is your PC.)

My audio isn't synced with the visual video when i make a video. how do i fix this?

This is usually caused by the incorrect video codec being used, causing the stream to "lag" behind. If so, you can try fiddling with either the codec itself or its quality controls (or the video resolution. Try lowering it a bit, see if it helps).

Otherwise, you can fix the video afterwards using a tool such as VirtualDub (freeware, quite intuitive to use).

Suddenly the A/V recording is out of sync

If you have recently added and other audio / video software it is quite possible that it may have introduced some extra "codecs"

Too many or the wrong kind can have this type of impact

As can a bad player.
If you did then un-install it inc any extras or other settings it may have made.

If you have changed the format that you record in this too can cause issues esp. if the wrong codecs / player is installed.

Many video conversion utilities can play a part too.

These are all areas I would suggest you look at.

If you tried the video test in the software you were supplied with the camera, try doing the same thing in windows movie maker2, this way if the same thing happens you know there is a problem with the cam driver streaming the audio and video not the software for recording. If it is still out of sync; as i have had on many occasions with my logitech, sometimes restarting the camera helps, because normally the camera programme starts up as soon as you boot up the pc ready for your cam to be connected. To do this there is normally an icon on right side of taskbar, right click on it and select close, and disconnect cam. Reconnect cam and the software should restart. You can also try using a different usb port as that sometiimes cures the delay.
