Windows 7: Sound not starting at beginning of video streams but still in sync.

05 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional
Sound not starting at beginning of video streams but still in sync.

My sound doesn't start playing until about 4 seconds into video all on website players. It's not out of sync it just doesn't start until the 4 second mark. I didn't have this issue until I relocated to my house. Everything is plugged in the same and I haven't had any major updates. Flash is up to date as well. Any ideas?

Try this. Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the SoundBlaster and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the SoundBlaster. If there were any corruptions between Windows and the sound card this will fix it. This also fixes other flakey problems and if you are lucky will take care of your problem.

Using 2 sound cards at once for different streams
I'm running two sound cards - my system's onboard Realtek sound and an M-Audio Delta 66. Is there any way to use both at once, for instance to play a radio stream through the M-Audio card while everything else goes through the onboard card? With Windows XP I would set my default playback device...

All video streams slow, everything else fast
Hey guys, I just upgraded to cable speed internet today. For some reason, I can download files at normal speeds, but whenever I stream videos on youtube in HQuality/HD, then it lags. It just won't load steadily. It loads a bit, then stops, then loads a bit, then stops... I've had this...
