I've got this problem as well with my headset. Thats why I carry the audio cable around for it all the time. If i want to listen to music only, that's fine i can just start playing. But if i wanna watch a video, i have to turn the headset off, plug the audio cable into them and turn them into a normal wired headset.
Sucks, but i deal with it. i've rarely been in a situation where having wireless head phones during video playback was desired. Music, yes. having no wires comes in handy when riding a bike or jogging. Both of which i dont think i'm going to be watching a video during.
welcome to the club of people who think archos needs to stop monkey'n around and do things right for once.
I swear, Archos always trips at the finish line. They always come out with such great products and hardware but when it come to software, they trip, fall, blow up and take everything around them out.
They need to fire the currently out sourced program department and find a new one.
This is a simple problem that could be avoided if they'd program the thing to preload and buffer a few seconds worth of audio before video. in other words, off set the sync rate so that the delay in the bluetooth stack would appear to disappear.
This should be possible considering the audio is streamed out like any other streaming source. it has its own time sync that the device will monitor so that the streaming doesnt double or overlap. so it'd just be a matter of starting it slightly before the video playback to the screen starts.
