Xvid sound out of sync

Description

The problem is that all xvid audio gets out of sync. This doesn't happened with mkv files at all. Only xvid but also every single xvid I've tried.

When I fast forward the video starts in some kind of slow motion and it takes between 5 and 20 seconds for the video to catch up with the sound. This also happens when I'm watching a xvid. 90% of the time it synced but from nowhere the unsynced audio is there and you can see the video is catching up as it goes along.

I've tried to play with WIFI, LAN and USB. I've tried to factory reset the machine and every setting I can find.

It's the same problem how ever I do. This is a big matter because alot of things that my gf watches is in xvid.

I think I have seen this same issue. After seeking certain TV shows, the audio gets ahead of the video. The gap seems to be dependent on the length of the seek.

For me this seems to be somewhat random. I'm just streaming stuff from the net, so I don't know what format the video is.

I never had the patience to wait and see if the video would "catch up" like original report states; I will try this the next time I see the lag issue.

I'm running 1.1.1.19092.

It would help us reproduce and fix the issue if you could please upload the file or a file sample to the "incoming" directory at
