Postby martinslitr » Wed Aug 23, 2017 12:11 pm

The problem i observed in overlay and raw video as well. Standard videos from my phone doesnt have problem with sync video and sound.

I have Galaxy S8+ with Android 7.0 with last version of your app 21.0.9

Thanks, Regards Martin

As discussed by email, please try turning off LapTimer's Beep sound. It looks like the S8 cannot record video and audio with audio outputs at the same time - at least not without getting an audio sync problem.

Hi Harry, I'm now using the Samsung S8 and appear to have the same problem sound not being in sync. I've tried turning off the beeps but I still have the same issue. Is there anything else I can try? I'm going to the Nürburgring next week so hoping to get it fixed before then if possible!

I also have a Galaxy S8 and bought and used Harrys Laptimer for the first time on my first ever trackday yesterday.
Was gutted after when I checked the recordings and and found out that sound and video was not in sync at all. :(

Yes, looks like a problem with the S8 video recording engine. I have found some issues with S8 audio recording on the net, although they were not precisely the same as reported here. What you can do is report your issue to Samsung. This will raise their priority to stabilize recording for an upcoming OS update. I do not see I can do anything here currently. :-(

So what is the solution if you have an S8? Using an external recording device (i.e. GoPro) fix the issue?

Hi Harry,

Same issue with S8, very annoying.

Using an external GoPro to capture video and audio connected to the S8, does this solve the issue?

Thanks,

Yes, external cams should work. It is a problem with the S8 recording.
