    Default Video playback is too fast after recording live video stream with Replay Media Catcher 4

    I recently started using Replay Media Catcher 4 because it seemed like a very useful product. I was attempting to record a live stream this evening of a concert that was airing free online, I figured it would be a great time to test out the functionality of this program. Everything seemed to go fine while recording, it seemed like it was working exactly as it was supposed to be. I then tried to watch my FLV video and discovered that the video was 2x faster than the audio, though the audio was in sync and played at normal speed. Is there anything I can do to fix this or if any further clarification is needed feel free to ask. I recorded the stream and than went to watch it and the video playback is too fast and absolutely makes the video unwatchable, if anyone can fix this I would be greatly appreciative.

    Sometimes a recorded live streams/webcams video and audio may also be out of sync because the server is sending incorrect timestamps
    FAQ on the Applian main site about using Fix FLV with live streams:

    1. Click Tools -> Fix FLV and select the file to be fixed.
      Or, if the file is still in Replay Media Catcher's main list, right-click on it and select Fix FLV.
    2. Expand the File Contents section

    3. Set timestamp to 15 and click "Fix Time".

    If the resulting file is still fast or slow then the time stamp can be adjusted further. But, 15 usually does the trick. Be sure to click the Fix Time button, or your changes will not be applied.
