Searching on the term 'latency' only shows posts from users who want to decrease this parameter.
Problem: poor audio-video sync, when viewing streaming flash videos on a variety of web sites, due to delay in audio processing time.
The problem disappears when the multi-band, system-wide audio equalizer (PulseAudio Equalizer) is bypassed.
Otherwise, this equalizer works extremely well, so I'd like to retain its functionality.
The only solution I can think of would be to introduce a similar delay in the video (0.5sec, or a bit less, would be enough). Can increasing the frame-buffer size do this?
It would be nice if this could be switchable, as I normally don't need a video delay, for other computer functions.
If the problem was when playing a video file, then I'd open it in VLC, where there's setting to correct this problem. Can the right video driver provide a similar functionality?
? Is this possible, and after reading the problem, can anyone offer a better solution?

- Current driver: xserver-xorg-video-ati (open source) v.1:7.3.0-1ubuntu3.1, X.OrgX server -- AMD/ATI display driver wrapper
- Alternative driver, listed in Driver Manager: fglrx v.2:15.201-Oubuntu0.14.04.1, Video driver for AMD graphics accelerators
- Audio/video set-up:
- I'm using the analog audio output built-into the motherboard, to feed a pair of amplified loudspeakers.
- The onboard video output is disabled and the monitor is fed from the VGA output on the graphics card.
