I have just upgraded from my Natty to Oneric and I am having a problem. The audio seems to be delayed compared to the video. It isn't just a bug in flash, 'cause the sound is delayed in every video that I've tried to play in computer. Does anybody know what to do?

My configuration includes Intel i5 2500k and Asus P8H67-m EVO with Intel HD Audio

Are the audio and video out of sync when you play video files on your PC? – Trevor Oct 14 '11 at 16:16
I made a mistake in writting a post. Yes, the audio/video sync is bad in every video. – arthurwozniak Oct 14 '11 at 16:19
