I have a problem with Bluetooth headphones. when I connect them I have a delay in youtube and other videos. also, there is a lot of little disconnected. these headphones work perfectly in windows. the problem is only in Ubuntu. I tried to download blueman and it’s still the same - not working.

I really love Ubuntu and want to work with it but, if I cant use these headphones, I will have to go back to windows.


P.S ubuntu 17.04

If you are using VLC, it's better with Tools > Preferences> Audio > Effects > Enable Time-Stretching audio - unchecked (default is checked), and maybe Output module: Audio memory output(default is Automatic). It's some settings thing, but I didn't figure it out just yet. Any new trial&error very welcomed. (I'm using VLC 2.2.2 on eOS Loki, based on Ubuntu 16.04)


After installing blueman, sudo apt-get install blueman open blueman from terminal or open bluetooth-manager in menu then inside it try these two things:

A. right-click on your bluetooth device and set it's Audio profile to A2DP Sink.

B. Go to Adapter->Preferences->Visibility Settings, set it to "Always Visible". Did this help?
