I guess you mean libmpdemux/ad_realaud.c? ad_read is nowhere in my

On a block basis should be fine already as a first try. At this moment
I get 2 seconds offset between the two streams. If that can be reduced
to less than half a second I am much happier.
It is also very easy for me to guarantee that the audio stream is older
than the video. What I need is to decode audio to /dev/null until I am
at the same position as the video.
I did have a look at other demuxers as well before asking here, but up
to now I could not find something I could use :-(
I will look at ad_realaud.c
