Windows Media Player accelerated video & audio

Posted on 2005-04-14

I have this ASF video which is played at accelerated speed, both audio and video, only on one computer. This happens always, independently from where the video is located (CD, internet, etc.). All the other computers play the very same video without any problems, so I guess it must be something local to that computer.

Any clues?

    Most likely, I think your sound card driver is the culprit, and it should be reinstalled or the right one found.  Some people experience this as people talking like chipmunks.

    Probably a directx problem. What player, what OS, what directx, what video board?

    It was the sound driver, once I got a newer one it all worked fine. Gave an "A" because what might seem a stupid piece of information (the word "chipmunks") could be used to get useful hits when searching google for this problem.

    Thanks guys.
