Do you mean that the discrepancy is not constant for the same video or that
it is not constant when you are comparing the discrepancy in one video to
If it is the former, then it is possible - once the differential is known
for the Zoom session in question - to convert all the time stamps in that
file to be that many seconds less or more.
If it is the latter, oh boy.
