Well, isn't the same case than a video player. What do you suggests?
Delaying the video to whatever audio delay I have? In this case that
isn't possible. The "future video" isn't deterministic, depends on
what the user does (jump, fire, whatever), and the user will not do
anything until he sees the image to which he has to react. So an
unsync between audio and video is unavoidable... but it can be "low".
