    Ever since I've had Froyo (never tested it with 2.1) on my Droid X, this audio out of sync issue has drove me completely crazy. I used handbrake and followed the settings on the knowyourcell droid x to no avail. It seems that it only affects a small number of droid x users, though I have seen multiple threads on the issue so I know it's not an isolated incident

    Basically anytime I skip forward or go back the audio and video would become permanently out of sync. Skip forward a little bit, skip forward almost the whole video it didn't matter. Pausing and resuming didn't fix it. What video player I used didn't fix it. The only way to avoid the video being out of sync was to watch it all the way through, even then sometimes it would still get messed up.

    I applied the official verizon release today and the issue is finally resolved. I tried pausing, skipping back and forward a bunch of times. Tried it on moboplayer and the default player, I can finally watch videos properly. Did not even do a factory wipe.

    So can you tell me step by step how you got the update from verizon? Are you talking about gingerbread?

    I went the non OTA route, check out one of the long Gingerbread threads for more info.

    I didn't make this thread to explain how to get gingerbread, there are people who are much better at that. I never saw any threads that conclusively found a fix for audio out of sync on videos, otherwise I wouldn't have posted at all. Btw there are only 2 huge threads about gingerbread and both are on the first page.

    You say you applied the "official" verizon release. So we are just wondering how you got it thats all. I assume you rooted to get gingerbread in the rooted section because there is no other logical explanation.

    My apologies for my fingers going before my brain. I was reading this as you d/l an update for an app instead of GB. My bad.
    To the guy who wants to know about getting GB, the easiest and best way is to part with a couple of dollars and buy the TBH app. Best $ you can spend.
