Audio output bitrate adjustment and repeated bug report

My friend and I were discussing videolan, and it seems
as if the audio tracks the video, or that there is a
central clock that the audio and video track.  We both
think the audio should be the master clock.  The audio
should _never_ bend/pitch/skip.  Video glitches are much
less disturbing...

Also, is there a way to either delay the audio or video
by X milliseconds?

linear interpolation between two consecutive samples, like vlc
currently does, does introduce audio artefacts. If you have a good
track to put that in evidence, I'd like to get it :)

The solution would be to use a sinc-shaped interpolation curve. See for more details.

Of course I think I'm right. If I thought I was wrong, I'd change my mind.
