audio out of sync


It appears that the audio always ends up out of sync as I'm watching a film. The problem always seems to get worse as the film goes on. This happens when I watch streamed media, so it isn't an issue with 'bad torrents.' Thanx

Car out of sync

My car doesn't work when I am driving it.
Most other cars overtake me on the freeway.
They keep doing this, but my gasoline is fine: The tank is full. So this isn't an issue with the gas.
Thanx.

Can you see the problem here?

The software that made the film may be the problem. I for the most part haven't seen this issue and have viewed videos from a number of sources.

It may very well be the player that's at fault, or the player could be used to fixed the problem. With some, SMPlayer for instance, the audio and video can be brought into sync with the audio settings. Occasionally need to do that on downloaded videos.

Hi guys, I'm still non the wiser, especially after tredegar's completely useless and slightly pretentious analogy (I'm trying to get my computer to perform relatively basic tasks not complete a cryptic crossword) and if your car doesn't work mate, may I suggest what a silly idea it would be to take it on the motorway!

Lara, the point I am making is that you are not giving us any useful information:

My car doesn't work when I am driving it. It's a 2006 Mercedes 180, manual.
It is going very slowly, although I am pressing the accellerator.
Most other cars overtake me on the freeway.

They keep doing this, I can't go faster than 15MPH. But my gasoline is fine: The tank is full. So this isn't an issue with the gas.
There is a strong smell of burning, and a red light on the dashboard that says "HBrake"...

So.....

What OS are you using, which particular version?
What application are you using to watch the film?
Do you have the same problem if you use another application?
Do all films have this problem, or is it just avi / mpg4 / mov /flash?
If you use another OS to watch the same film, do you see the same problem?

See what I mean?

The OS is 8.04 32 bit. I nearly always use vlc, although I have now downloaded sm player (thanx to jglen), however this problem has occurred on other applications such as totem and movie player. The file types are divx, avi and mp4. I have also hit a wall when it comes to streaming video clips on you tube. Thanx
