Bug#400525: totem-xine: 2.16.2-4 and 2.16.3-3: small delay between screen action and sound

Package: totem-xine
Version: 2.16.3-3
Severity: normal

When playing a DVD movie (either from an ISO file or directly from a
DVD), there is a very short delay between visible action and sound.
Totem-gstreamer does not have this issue (but is incapable of dealing
with things like DVD menus).

This delay is almost completely unnoticeable except during dialog,
during which it's quite apparent: the onscreen person's lips will move
slightly before the corresponding sound.

I can't precisely quantify the delay, but I'd say it's on the order of a
tenth of a second.  It's small, but it's enough to be disconcerting
while watching a DVD.
