I am doing some tests with NoMachine Workstation evaluation for Linux and a Windows enterprise client. The server is running in a Debian 8 VM (2 vcpus of Intel Xeon E5-2630 @ 2.40Ghz). I am trying to run some videos in Iceweasel + flash (flashplugin-nonfree). No full screen, no high resolution. When running a virtual session some videos are running perfectly fine (e.g., most videos on youtube that I’ve tried, they work fine even in Full HD). But for other videos the sound has small (but very annoying) glitches. E.g., videos from http://www.spiegel.de/sptv/magazin (JW player + Flash). For some other videos the sound has no glitches but there is a small (but noticeable) delay between the sound and the video stream. I’ve tried virtual sessions both in lightweight and in regular mode – basically the same result.
When connecting to an existing X-session (Physical display), I don’t have any sound glitches but the delays get much worse.
I’ve tried different settings for pulseaudio without any success.
Could you advice any way to get an improvement? I do understand that video will have glitches and low fps, but what I am trying to achieve is sound without glitches + sound in sync with video.
