Solution for audio-video delay

Today I watched a movie with VideoLAN but towards the end I encountered a problem I had several times before. The video and audio became asynchronous really badly. Knowing that VLC has functions to do almost anything, I decided to dig into the deep of the VLC preferences and I discovered what I searched.

I found some Hot-keys which might be useful in this context:

  • press: g to augment the audio delay
  • press: f to decrease the audio delay

If you watch movies with subtitles the following might be useful as well:

  • press: j to augment the subtitle delay
  • press: h to decrease the subtitle delay

Note that these are default settings and can be changed in the preferences.
