Is the audio out of sync with the video at this point? ie before it 

The error basically means that the audio is somehow getting ahead of the 
video, but not sure how it has happened if you are clock the video to 
the audio... 

Adding some debug statements to the audio code and main loop will 
quickly bring you up to speed on how this bit works
