I'm not able to syncronise audio and video while watching quick time movies: the audio comes always after the video.
How do I do that?

There normally is nothing you can do about it, except increasing the performance of your machine (parameters).
First tell us what your machine configuration is : type of BUS, graphic card, cdrom speed, processor type, ...
Then I can tell you what you can try (if your machine is not too slow), but don't expect miracles :-)

There are two ways to solve the problem.

Software:
1. Try to install a new proper QuickTime from apple's web site.
"http://quicktime.apple.com/" if you are using Win95 you need 32 bit QT, Win3.1 needs 16 bit QT.
2. Change the 16 bit sound out to 8 bit sound to reduce the load of your sound cards.
3. Reduce the resolution of display the movie in order to free up some resource for processing sounds.
4. Try to view the movies in Win3.1, I have try the system to play the same movie. The result is Win3.1 give a smoother picture.
5. Reduce the load in your windows. I means do not install a lot of application into your windows. It is because the more application you install, the more driver windows will load on start-up. The more driver it load, the slower windows runs.

Hardware:
1. Because the problem is cause by the process of your sound card is too slow to catch up with image, so the most direct method is to upgrade the sound card.
2. If your display card support DCI, it will helps a lot if your using windows 3.1.

Hope it helps.
