I got a home-made movie from my friend. It's an AVI file. I have two versions of it. One is 1 hour 47 mins and the other is 1 hour 43 mins. The longer one has EXCELLENT video quality but a deep, muffled sound quality. The shorter one has EXCELLENT SOUND quality but crappy video.
What I want to do is take out the good sound quality from the short video, put it into the longer video and save it as one file.
I got the sound files separately and saved them as an MP3 separately.
I was planning to use the crappy sound file as some sort of bassline or the 'boom' bit of a good sound file. The other one adds clear, crisp detail into voice and background happenings.
I tried Audacity (1.3 Beta Unicode) to get the wicked sound quality into the crap one BUT I ended up with a badly dubbed and out-of-sync sound file! The sound came out as if two videos were being played at the same time but a few seconds later. I tried clipping them but it was as if the sound file for the good one had it's 'gaps' go longer and longer until (near the end of the sound) it became a few minutes out of sync! So I decided to turn to you people.
What I want to know is are there any programs or any way for the PC to actually scan the sound files, pick out the similarities in the sound files and group them together into one, high quality audio file? Is that even possible?

is it possible with anything below?
K-Lite Codec Pack (any of the settings with them e.g. Haali settings or FFDshow)
At this point, and everything i've looked into i can't find anything that will accomplish this:
I'm not saying there's not something out there that will do it, i just don't have enough hands on with stripping and combining audio to know how to go about it.What I want to know is are there any programs or any way for the PC to actually scan the sound files, pick out the similarities in the sound files and group them together into one, high quality audio file?

Still looking though.
I guess only the big sound people like Sony BMG and stuff have this kind of technology available. But then again, someone should try and write an open source version of this!
Thanks I'm looking as well
Edit - I`m looking

Have a read of this mate this might help you somewhat. It's for syncing avi's and audio.
How do I fix audio sync in AVI file ?
There are a few options and free programs on there for you to use.
Mr. Mojo Risin'
Are both original files the same in content, even though one is slightly longer than the other?
If so then you need to timestretch the audio.
Womble can do this, have a look here
Once you get it loaded let me know if you need help, it is a very easy program to use, but also quite powerful in the features it has
