When you run avidemux2 do you let it recognize the audio format when
setting up (options 1-4, forget the tags on the buttons). When I let it
recognize the audio stream itself I always get a 66ms offset. I never have
a problem with the audio being out of sync (but lip-syncing is not really an
issue for me since I have, thus far, only transcoded cartoons).
