Vidjam always attempts to automatically detects how many beats are in your videos. When a video is created with the number of beats in the power of 2, Vidjam will automatically apply the correct beats tag value. For instance, if it contains 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 or 128 beats then this process is automatic and your videos will automatically sync to your tempo. However, if the artists who created the video made it with a number of beats not in the power of two, you may need to manually edit the Total Beats tag so the video lines up with your music tempo. In this example, Shadowstar shows us how to edit the Total Beats tag when the example video has 10 beats. To get that number, he simply counted how many pulses the video contains and then set the Total Beats tag value to that number. After that, the video will effortlessly synchronize with your music when triggered in phase.
