How can I delay the audio (relative to the video stream) in an MP4 movie file and save the result?

Please tell us what exactly do you mean by "delay the audio"? (OS version would help too) – Martín Marconcini Apr 3 '11 at 11:55
Tried to make the question more clear. Why does OS version matter? – Ove S Apr 3 '11 at 16:12
OS version matters because you'd be surprised at the number of questions that come from users using Windows and stuff like that. It happens. – Martín Marconcini Apr 3 '11 at 20:36
Ah, ok. Thought you were talking about mp4 Audio Files. Thanks for the editing your question. Deleted my answer. – moonglum Apr 4 '11 at 8:24

Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone and describe how the tool you recommend can be used to solve the problem stated in the question. Also please have a look at, especially the part about self-promotion. – patrix Oct 6 '14 at 15:06
