How to fix audio synch problem in Video

There are few things more aggravating than trying to watch a video whose audio is about one second too slow. Here's a quick fix for the problem in VLC.

We've shown you how to do this by digging into VLC's preferences, but it turns out there are some very simple keyboard shortcuts to fix this problem. While you're watching the video, just press the J or K keys to move the audio back or forward 50 milliseconds, respectively. Quick, easy, and no advanced fiddling required.

Note that some people are reporting that Ctrl+K and Ctrl+L work, but this didn't work in my tests. J and K worked fine.
