losing audio sync when watching videos

Bug #106902 reported by hardyn on 2007-04-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I don't recall having the problem with edgy; with feisty, even after a few minutes, a played-back video seems to lose audio sync and can be out my as much as 1 second after about 30min.
the audio can be resynced by fast-forwarding or rewinding just a little; playback will continue to lose sync after that point again. there are no audio or video quality problems, just a minor but annoying loss in sync.

i do have a fairly high performance machine, so i do not think that is a problem:

Asus z71vp P-M notebook, 2.1ghz, 1gb ram, Nvidia 6600 w/ binary drivers, feisty fully updated. using ubuntu "movie player" and gstreamer with several restricted codecs.

Is this symptom still reproducible in 8.10 beta?

gstreamer is not the right sourcepackage, removing.

Does this problem still occur with the latest Ubuntu release?

There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test the current Ubuntu development version (10.10). If you can test it, and it is still an issue, we would appreciate if you could upload updated logs by running apport-collect 106902, and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.

We'd like to figure out what's causing this bug for you, but we haven't heard back from you in a while. Could you please provide the requested information? If so, please feel free to mark this bug as new. Thanks!
