Flash player audio sync problem..


Just wondering, has anyone found a fix to the problem of the flash player not syncing audio to the pictures? Seems to not be a browser issue, as it does the same thing in Konqeuror and Mozilla with Flash Player 6 and 7

thanks,
-myk

hi. just wondering if anyone has a workaround for this. i can't get the audio and video to sync properly even with the latest version of the flash plugin. does anyone have any details as to what the root cause of this is? is it a bug in the flash plugin itself which macromedia/adobe can't fix or something? it's really annoying to not be able to sync properly... i myself posted about this over a year ago, and this thread here is almost two years old... i'd actually be very surprised if by now someone, somewhere hasn't come-up with a solution...

I never had problems with flash, but before the last couple of kernel updates I used to have very bad sync issues with mplayer. As I mentioned, the latest kernel seems to have corrected the issue.

so when you watch a flash streaming movie your audio and video are in sync?? what's your setup look like?? kernel version, distro version, etc...

i'm on slackware 10.2 with kernel 2.4.33-pre3 and alsa 1.0.10 on a 1.2ghz athlon (c-media 8738 sound card) - but i've been having this problem since WAY back...

when you say "latest kernel" i assume you are refering to the 2.6.x.y tree right??

maybe i should try with the ubuntu live cd (it uses kernel 2.6.x.y) to see if the problem doesn't occur there... hmmm...

well, i tried with the ubuntu dapper flight 7 live cd and the flash audio/video sync was perfect... i assume then that the problem only occurs when one is using kernel 2.4... that's good news i guess...

Same problem here... Slack 10.2, Dropline Gnome 2.14, 2.6.15, latest Flash7 plugin. From what I've read on Macromedia's, er, Adobe's site (don't have a URL handy for the discussion), this is a known, longstanding, unresolved issue with the Linux Flash player. Hopefully it'll be resolved in the 8.5 player due out later this year (no 8.0 for Linux, as according to Adobe 8.5 is coming so soon after 8.0 that they just decided to skip to the end :-) ).

darn, i thought it would simply be a kernel version issue... but if you guys are having the problem with kernel 2.6, then i guess that's not it anymore... so could it perhaps be a library version issue?? i see it links to libc and a lot of X11 libs...this is on my slackware 10.2 box (kernel 2.4), where the sync does NOT work properly BTW:
Code:
bash-3.00$ ldd /usr/lib/firefox-1.5.0.3/plugins/libflashplayer.so 
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x402e1000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x40332000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40356000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x4035a000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x40424000)
        libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x40432000)
        libXmu.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXmu.so.6 (0x40483000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40499000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000)

Coming soon: Adobe Flash 9 for Linux

Quote:
We won't be seeing it until early 2007, but Adobe is hard at work on bringing Flash Player 9 to Linux. In a series of recent blog postings, Adobe's lead engineer on the Flash Player team, Mike Melanson, has been keeping the Linux community up to date with Adobe's plans.

Adobe's main goal is to create a Flash Player 9 that is feature-comparable to its Windows and MacOS offerings. Another, according to a recent interview with Melanson, is to enable proper audio/video synchronization. In the last version of Flash that was available for Linux, Flash Player 7, this was a significant problem.
