Every video on YouTube's audio is out of sync from the video! matteumayo2 12/3/11 2:30 AM
*This is not with videos I have uploaded!*

Every single video I watch goes out of sync after a bit. It's practically a quarter second (if not half second) difference, and it's EXTREMELY annoying.

This also happens with streams I watch, if that helps.

Brief system specs:

AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE (stock clocks)
ATI 5770 (stock clocks)
Windows 7 64x
~600gb HDD
4gb DDR3 RAM

This has only started happening recently, and I can't find anyone else with this issue. Please help!

Try clearing the cache/cookies on your browser and then restart it.

That didn't seem to help... any other ideas?

I'm having this same problem, glad I'm not the only one. At first I thought I was crazy, so I watched several videos just to be sure, and yes the audio is just slightly out of sync (It's also out of sync when I watch podcasts on vimeo) and it's annoying as all hell.

I'm having the same issue. Almost every video I watch on youtube is out of sync. I did notice that it seems to be less "off" at lower resolutions, and more "off" at higher resolutions. Anybody else notice that too?

What kind of videos were they? There's been a problem since almost forever with at least many webcams where the audio is often badly out of sync, a problem YouTube has not managed to address ever, so far as I'm aware. If you're watching a lot of vlogs, talking head videos shot from people's personal webcams that might explain it, as more of them are out of sync than are in sync, as far as I can tell.

In my case, it's pretty much every video. Vlogs, news, movie trailers, etc.

One way videos can get out of sync is if the computer is overloaded (if it has too many programs running or it's simply just too slow). You might have another problem but this is my best guess.

You could try limiting the processes that you don't need but start up automatically. Try also closing any other windows you might have open. Clean up your desktop from unnecessary files. Also see if there's any browser addons you don't need anymore(turn them off or uninstall them). Special skins, see-through windows, etc. might also take power from your computer. Just try making everything basic and see if that helps.

I'm no expert on processors, but the rest of your system looks fine.
