I have just reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro and then installed CS4. I have updated the suite and tried converting my first .avi file. I was told in a previous post that I should not use K-lite Codec pack with Pr Pro, so I tried using the Adobe Media Encoder included in the CS4 package. It took the media encoder a better part of an hour to covert Beerfest from an .avi file to a .flv file. I was hoping this would allow for a better quality playback, Unfortunately it did not work. During playback with no edits or cuts of any kind, I still experience huge sync problems with the audio and the video. I heard there is a way to use you GPU to accelerate the speed of Pr. Can someone please help me configure my system if that is possible?
Should I use a third party encoder or codec? IF so which one? Is there a general setup guide or tutorial that I can review so I can make sure all my settings are correct, for playing and editing .avi files? Once I import an .avi file into a sequence, is there something more I should do before I begin to edit and playback?
If anyone could help me get started I would be very appreciative.
AMD Anthlon 64 X2

What codec is used in that AVI file?

This was good advice. K-Lite, though one of the more benign CODEC "packs," has still caused many users all sorts of grief.
Along with the answer to Jeff's question, please let us know the complete specs. on your Export. It could be something simple there.

That relates to the nVidia Quadro CX with the Cuda driver and only accelerates H.264 encoding, not FLV, for only $ 1700. Unless that is all you do, it is a waste of money, especially on a system like yours.
