Syncing for YouTube Playalongs
So I'm one of those schmucks that posts videos of myself playing along to songs on YouTube. The problem is that I don't really have much in the way of editing software, so I'm stuck with using Audacity and Windows Live Movie Maker. I used to have to sync my audio track with the song and then sync that to the video, and at least one of those always seemed to be slightly off.
I finally figured out a way to record my audio and video without any syncing issues by telling my webcam that the bass input is a mic. But I still have to sync that up with the song, and I still have issues. Part of the problem is the lack of precision with Window Live Movie Maker, and the other issue is the lack of precision in my playing.
What's the best way to record video and audio while simultaneously syncing it up with a song track? I tried playing the song in Audacity and recording it at the same time, but there was always a slight latency when recording the track.
