OpenShot buggy audio/sound strutting problem solved

Open Shot for video editing

OpenShot is an amazing video editing tool with professional features. you can download this from official website here. http://www.openshot.org/

However while using the recent new build 2.3.4.x, I’ve encountered a bug where if you add mp3 music to one of the tracks and play the video in preview mode it makes noise / strutting sounds approximately after 2 minute 30 seconds.



I tried few old builds but couldn’t get rid of this issue. Probably it is existing from long time and happens with specific machine setup.

Solution: I converted the audio file from ‘mp3’ format to ‘ogg vorbis’ format and imported the ogg vorbis format in Open Shot tool. It is working smoothly now. Ogg Vorbis conversion is very easy and fast if you use Audacity (Open Source Audio Editing tool) to do that.

Hope that is helpful to many of the friends who are facing the same issue.

SSD to Boost the performance of your laptop

SSD to boost the laptop performance

Most of the times we are worried about making hardware changes to our laptop because of downtime it may cause. If somebody tells you that you can migrate to new faster SSD without formatting or installing anything, it is really hard to believe.

In fact I’ve tried to give justification why you must migrate to new SSD disk to boost the laptop performance.

Often we reach the deadlock in our laptop and find there is no other solution but to buy a new faster laptop. But in this video you’ll see that you can increase the performance of your laptop 2 to 4 times with new Samsung 850 Pro SSD. You can also do this upgrade process to newly purchased laptop for best results.

I could buy Samsung 850 Pro SSD from Amazon for approx 10k INR during flash sale. You also need USB 3.0 enclosure to clone your laptop drive to SSD before you can install that in your laptop.
