    question

    Anybody having audio playback problems? As in, whenever I record videos, I notice quite a lot of lag and noise and no amount of turning up the volume actually helps increase the volume of the audio. Thanks for any help!
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Here are several suggestions. Use a tripod or jury rig the phone in a way that eliminates holding it when shooting video. This will minimize the amount of noise transfer from hand-holding the device. The next thing I would recommend is post-processing of your video file on a laptop or desktop using one or a combination of the following free, highly-regarded programs available on the web. These are VLC, Audacity and Handbrake. When using VLC and Audacity, you will concentrate on noise filtering, equalization and compression. Noise filtering is self-explanatory. An understanding of equalization will allow you to jack up the bass, emphasize the midrange or attenuate the treble. Learning how to employ compression will enable you increase volume without introducing distortion. The last thing you will do is post-processing of the video itself. Using Handbrake, you will be able to significantly reduce the size of the video file without sacrificing video and sound quality. The software has a good selection of phone and tablet presets. By reducing the size of the file, you will reduce the amount of work that the ASUS processor must do in order to smoothly reproduce the moving images and sound. The larger your video files the greater the chance of latency on small device playback. You will find your Asus videos in ASUS_Z00TD>Internal storage> DCIM> Camera by connecting your phone to a PC as a storage device with a USB cable. Copy and paste the file to your desktop and process it in the above-mentioned programs. When you are done, rename the finished product and copy it back to the proper Asus phone directory. Compare the end result with your original video and I think you will be amazed at the improvement in quality.
