Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Roku streaming stick+ here (with a 4 year old Vizio barely-smart TV and Sonos speakers) but I think it's a Roku-wide issue from other posts.
Today I noticed substantial audio/lip sync lag with YouTube. Also, crackling and popping in all YouTube video selection screens, but only when I moved the highlighting selector around.
TRY THIS FIRST: start a YouTube video, then hit * to bring up the Roku options while watching that video. A menu will slide in from the left, and one option will be "Volume leveling." Make sure that's set to OFF - for me, that fixed both the lip sync in-video AND the audio popping when selecting videos.
This takes 10 seconds and won't make you remove, reset, or reinstall anything. Good luck!
I thought the popping and lag was a malfunction with my wifi and a movie I bought legit online earlier, but it continued with a different app and show, so I did this, turned off the “volume leveling” and sure enough, problem solved on both ends. Thank you so much for sharing!
