Video Problem-Picture delay

Asked by angelosbg on 2009-01-25

I have installed Linux Mint for the first time,so you can understand that I am a newbie.
I have a problem with every player I use.
When I watch an avi,an mpeg or whatever the picture has a small delay compared to sound.I have installed the ubuntu restricted extras and I didn;t find a solution.

What else can you suggest?

Thanks a lot for the answer but if the solution was so simple I would have solved it myself.
I have been using vlc from the beginning an it';s the same thing,I told you,this happens with every player

Ok, try this, tell apps to use X11 as video output.
e.g. VLC
navigate to preferences -> video -> output module
You may choose X11 from dropdown menu which appears.

Second, I don't know about the 'Mint' menus, but in Ubuntu in system -> preferences -> Multimedia System or something like that (command is gstreamer-propertiers in a terminal), you may find a video section and choose for video output X11, this should concern all video players.

If this doesn't help, it could be a video card or/and driver problem.

The X11 didn;t work.
I'll check at the help link that you gave me

Can you help with this problem?
