Fix Out-Of-Sync VLC Audio With A Keyboard Shortcut

There are few things more aggravating than trying to watch a video when its audio is about one second too slow. Here's a quick fix for the problem in VLC.

We've shown you how to do this by digging into VLC's preferences, but it turns out there are some very simple keyboard shortcuts to fix this problem. While you're watching the video, just press the J or K keys to move the audio back or forward 50 milliseconds, respectively. Quick, easy and no advanced fiddling required.

Note that some people are reporting that Ctrl+K and Ctrl+L work, but this didn't work in my tests. J and K worked fine.

    I've used that for quite some time. It's a great simple fix for a pretty annoying problem.
    (It's J+K for me too, by the way)

    Most useful think I have read all week. Thanks!
