    bismillah. actually the sync is fine. the problem is likely with your connection/buffer. i was able to recreate the sync problem, and alhamdolillah to solve it, too.

    if you have a sync problem while playing the video, (1) pause it. (2) then drag the video back to the start manually — do not reload the video. (3) you’ll see the dark gray line indicating that the buffer has cached the start of the video. (4) click play. voila, no more sync problem.

    Another excellent lecture — if you want to know whats the status of knowledge, what IS knowledge and how did the first generation of sahaba contribute to it, give this a listen, a MUST for students of knowledge
