How to fix Audio and Video Out of Sync in KMPlayer using keyboard shortcut and hotkeys

The KMPlayer is a very powerful and popular media
player. It plays almost if not all video and audio files throw at it. It is an
excellent player due to the fact that it is free.

The KMPlayer stands strong among major media
player for Windows due to its own support for 3D videos and up to 4K display.
So, today we going to learn how to fix audio and
video out of sync in KMPlayer.
Syncing of audio and video are processes that
should have taking place during the editing process. Most modern and good
budget movies do not usually come with this problem, but old movies and some
hard coded movies when been converted do have this syncing error. Some poorly
edited movies and just some recorded speeches might come having this problem.
In fact some of the audio and video sync
(synchronization) problem might occur due to change of frame rate while editing
or when converting the video from one format to another.
So this tutorial will guide us on how to fix audio
and video out of sync with KMPlayer using keyboard shortcut or hotkeys.
Using keyboard shortcut keys will not generally
affect you while watching the video and it will be faster, so let’s get
These are the processes that is needed to be
1.  The KMPlayer has inbuilt keyboard shortcut, but the audio sync is not
given a keyboard shortcut, so we are going to create one. But you can check my
tutorial on top KMPlayer keyboard shortcut or hotkeys.
2.  So first of all, launch the KMPlayer, press F2 on your keyboard, it
will load up the Preferences.
3.  The Preferences window will open. On the left hand side, expand the
General tab, and Click on Keys/Global Control.

6.  All the resync audio do not have keyboard shortcut, so we are going to
create them. You can use any value but I advise using Ctrl + Shift  and then we give value of 1 to 7 for each
resync option
7.  So to give the value, click on any of the resync audio and press the
keyboard shortcut or hotkey you wish to give and after through click on Close

Resync audio +50milliseconds
Shift +
Ctrl + 5
Resync audio -5milliseconds
Shift +
Ctrl + 6
Resync audio +5milliseconds
Shift +
Ctrl + 7
Resync audio(Back to Normal)
The keyboard shortcut or hotkeys required for this
process are shift + ctrl + 1 to 7, using the timing of 5 seconds, 50
milliseconds and 5milliseconds to sync the audio to the video.
Shift +ctrl + 1, 3 and 5 stands for audio delay up,
should be used when audio is faster than video
Shift +ctrl + 2, 4 and 6 stands for audio delay
down, should be used when audio is slower than video.
Shift + ctrl + 7 to return audio to normal state
or original state (that is the way it was by default).
So hope you have been able to fix your out of sync
audio and video using KMPlayer.
