    Question Lipsync issues when streaming Netflix?

    Hi,

    I've read that some people are experiencing audio issues with Netflix. It seems like the lipsync is offbeat. I'm considering getting the Gpad, but if this is true it certainly is a deal-breaker.

    How is Netflix on the gpad working out for y'all?

    EDIT: added a word.

    Welcome to the forums. I haven't personally noticed any lip sync issues (this is on my S3 or Nexus 7 2013), but that doesn't mean there aren't on some devices or that a particular title doesn't have a bad encode. Maybe if you could point me to some examples where people are saying this, I could check out the titles in question and report back if it's a device thing or a title thing (of course, there are different encodes for different devices and quality so it won't really be conclusive either way, I guess)

    Hi, thanks, EvilMonkey!

    Yeah, no, I have no issues regarding off beat lipsync on my HTC One, as well. But I've both heard from a friend and read a complaint on XDA concerning this issue on the Gpad. So the question is how other Gpad-users are experiencing the audio playback in Netflix?

    I just tried Netflix again on my G-Pad to see if there is an audio delay.... yes, but extremely minimal. I tried several different videos ( some movie, some TV shows etc) and it varies. But I had to actually look (and listen) for it, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed.
    The issue must be (I would think) a time-sync issue in the Netflix app. I use Xfinity Go app to stream live news and and on-demand video with no audio lag whatsoever. I just used it again, and the audio is sync'd perfectly with the video.

    Otherwise, after owning and extensively using the G-Pad for 1 week (post surgery, so this is all I'm able to do) I am convinced it's the best mid-sized tablet!
    If the Netflix issue is a big concern for you, I'd suggest trying it out for yourself, to see if its a deal-breaker. And keep in mind, there may always be a fix or update right around the corner.

    I didn't notice any audio sync issues last night - but I wasn't really looking for it - I did, however, notice an occasional "skipped frame" effect - maybe once or twice a minute. Might be a connection issue though on that one.

    There are NO lipsync issues and i have TWO gpads bought from two different vendors two weeks apart. Plus i've never seen any such criticism about such an issue.

    Now that I look for it maybe the audio is off a tiny bit but really it could just be me I would not consider it a deal breaker and have noticed this with other tablets. I did notice a few skipped frames when watching HD movies but again not a deal breaker for me.

    Thanks for all the replies. I think a lot of people appreciate that you took time to check this up and review it.

    Yesterday I got my hands on this baby. Borrowed a white one from a friend. It's a "Not for sale" device because he works in retail. Of course, the first thing I tried - after about a hundred other first things like signing up accounts and updating apps and fiddling with themes - I tried streaming Netflix.

    I played different content and got different results. Jericho had significant lipsync issues, Modern Family had a notable delay in audio, while House of Cards and Breaking Bad had no or next to no delay at all.

    So, yeah, the delay is present depending on the content. However, when connecting to a bluetooth speaker and playing Netflix the delay was at least a half a second, which renders the whole thing unwatchable. I only tried House of cards, but it was enough proof. Bluetooth devices often have a delay, but this was significant.

    So now the main question is whether this is hardware or software related?
