Edit: These should probably be merged as they both go back to the same issue now: https://sound.stackexchange.com/questions/45177/exporting-wav-as-m4a-creating-sync-issue-in-audacity
So I need to convert a .wav f32 track into the highest quality format possible that fits in a mp4 container.
It says Mp4 will support: MP2, MP3, LC-AAC, HE-AAC, AC3
From what I read online, LC-AAC is the highest quality of the bunch.
Basic command seems to be:
ffmpeg -i input.wav output.m4a
But I get an out of sync issue where the m4a is playing about half a second later throughout than the original wav. And the bit rate of this output seems to be very low, 100's.
"When compatibility with hardware players does matter then use libmp3lame or ac3 in a MP4/MKV container when libfdk_aac isn't available."
Is this...what I'd want below? Or are there other things to improve quality I can specify? or maybe its just wrong syntax already.
ffmpeg -i input.wav -c:a "something" -q:a 330 output.m4a
LOG AND IMAGE TEST UPDATE: First picture is a wav audio file at the top. Then the aac created in ffmpeg, sync issue is present.
