When playing mkv+x264+mp3 with xine, the audio plays faster than the video, and it repeatedly freezes the audio track to let the video catch up. VLC handles the file normally without issue. It's a huge pain in the ass for files in this format.
This task depends upon

The upstream website is inaccessible for me (it keeps timing out and never loads), so I can't file there for the time being.

It works fine here : http://bugs.xine-project.org/
And you might want to play with different audio settings mentioned here before reporting : http://www.xine-project.org/faq#audio

Ah. In that case, the package is incorrect. It reports http://xinehq.de as the home page. I'll look into it.

I checked that faq and the closest thing it mentions is the stuttering issue, but there's no command line output like the faq says there should be. I don't think it's related. I'll check the tracker too.

the "xine-lib" package also has an incorrect URL.

I tried running with --verbose and it's indeed the "drifting" error. I tried changing audio.synchronization.av_sync_method to resample, and it made the error messages went away, but there was no change in the sync problem. Setting audio.synchronization.force_rate to 44100 in addition to the "resample" setting seems to resolve the issue. Thanks :)

xine-lib 1.1.17-1 should have the correct url. As you solved the sync problem, do you want me to close this?
Comment by Eric Belanger (Snowman) - Friday, 04 December 2009, 21:27 GMT
FTR: I've fixed the url in xine-ui trunk.

Daenyth : do you still want to contact upstream about it ? If their faq was not detailed enough, maybe you want to ask to complete them for your problem ?
Maybe this tip could also figure on a archwiki xine page ?

I don't think it's a huge issue with their faq. The only part that wasn't totally clear was that I had to run with --verbose to catch the error messages. I will add it to the wiki though.

Can't find a good page to add it to. I'll leave it for now.
