Capturing the delicate sound of the acoustic guitar can be challenging with the microphone built-in to a lower cost camcorder, and these devices rarely offer an audio input. One solution is to record the audio with some other system, perhaps a hand held recorder like the Zoom H2, or digital audio workstation. In the past Windows Movie Maker has been a useful free tool for syncing audio and video, but it does not handle the 720p MP4 format of my little Flip Mino HD. Avidemux is a free video editor that works with the Flip HD video output. This video demonstrates the process of replacing the native audio with an external file, bringing the two streams into synchronization, and trimming the video to final length.
