No, it doesn't either - the same codepath seems to be used and it
complains that "playback is late" and flushing buffers to try and fix

I made some more tests using all software I have installed, though
(some of them probably sharing libraries) :

- Audacity works
- mPlayer and mpv work
- Parole works
- Totem works
- Rhythmbox works

Basically it seems only VLC tries to sync audio to video instead of the
contrary :)
