For some videos, we need to download some flash videos (.flv) from the net to use within our production.
The problem is that a video that plays fine on the web, is out of sync when played on our system (without re-encoding!).
Example: this short political ad plays fine on the net:
But I download the flash video file:
the video is noticeably faster than the audio (even if you don't understand the language).
I use mplayer to play it from within the console. The file has not been re-encoded. Only downloaded.
