Every file I seem to play requires me to bring the audio back about 0.4 of a second. I would post if this was for a couple video, but this is my entire video library which was encoded in different ways and created at different times. This only seemed to happen when I switched my window manager from KDE to dwm; it worked fine in vlc before that

  • What format are you playing and what the cpu use when playing them? When you have high cpu use the video will get behind the audio. I have had this issue on hd quicktime files and h.264 form my sony dlsr.

  • So are you using a sound server now (PulseAudio or other)? Sep 8, 2011 at 23:22
  • @saras, Every format you can imagine

  • @Gilles, Is there a way for me to verify? I haven't messed with the default KDE audio options

You didn't indicate if you tested this on another application as well, so the problem might be the sound server you're using. If you're using PulseAudio, it does introduce delays which might be the cause of your problem. Without more info, it isn't really possible to say.
