We cannot deny that one of the best video and audio players that we have available is VLC Media Player, but that it is the best does not mean that it does not have any other errors or problems from time to time. Today we will see how sort out the delay from Audio on VLC Media Player with several easy methods.

Use a keyboard shortcut

Sometimes he audio lag problem it can be occasional. So the best way to fix it is by using a keyboard shortcut. Therefore, if the audio starts before the video, we will have to press “K” in Windows and “G” in Mac. On the other hand, if the video starts before the audio, then we will have to press “J” in Windows and “F” on Mac.

The only thing you have to bear in mind is that, if we press this option excessively, you could generate another audio delay. So we must use it with caution.

  • Next, we will click on “All” in “Show settings” at the bottom left and we will have to go to “Audio” in the left sidebar.
  • Once we are here, we will have to go to “Compensation for audio desynchronization” and we will have to set its value to positive if the audio is delayed. In case the audio is played before the video, the value should be negative.

I can’t fix audio lag in VLC Media Player

In case we keep seeing the error then it might not be VLC Media Player but Windows drivers. In case this is the case, the last alternative we have is to update the video and audio drivers. We will have to download the latest version of the drivers from the manufacturer’s website and install them on our computer.
