Thanks for the feedback!  I'm glad it worked OK.  Audio and video
synchronization issues are relatively common in Jami (I'm guessing it's
a difficult problem!), especially on systems lacking video acceleration
(such as mine -- GPU vendors typically require binary blobs to drive
their video decoders).  Where video acceleration is possible, I think it
takes care of the synchronization problem itself, which explains why it
often works better there.

Yes, both desktop clients (GNOME and Qt) support it.

My pleasure!  I'm happy to hear it may be put to good use!
