Okay, recapping. Downloaded WINAMP v5.6, downloaded the SHOUTCASTTV
plugin for WINAMP (do not install the browser plugins or toolbars - they are
both as buggy as all hell as you can find and add zero value).
http://www.winamp.com/

On the SHOUTCASTTV plugin there is a MST3K (Mystery Science Theater
3000) station (as well as a 1960's Batman Channel).
One of the two problems with the shows is that the audio, though great,
is out of sync with the lower than standard NTSC resolution quality video.

Got tired of it, so I searched for a solution. Here it is for you.
Right-click, select OPTIONS, then click the PREFERENCES submenu.
** OR just click CTRL-P (Control-P) **

On the Preferences menu there will be a list on the left-hand side of
the window.
Under "Plug-ins" click the submenu for "Input".
Since you have installed the SHOUTCASTTV plugin there should in the
"Input plug-ins" a choice of "Nullsoft NSV Decoder v 1.4 [in_nsv.ll]".

Click "Nullsoft NSV Decoder v 1.4 [in_nsv.ll]", then click the
"Configure" button at the bottom of the window.
Here you can change the buffering options.

The problem for me was that the video was not synchronized with the
audio. Here is where you fix it.
The primary thing you need to change is "Offset video from audio by:"
(in milliseconds -- "ms")
I changed this value to zero and the audio was still off for me.
Playing around with it gave me an optimal setting of 250 milliseconds
(your optimal setting may be different).

Enjoy.
This should make the viewing experience much more pleasant.
As always, keep buying the DVD's and circulating the "tapes".

You can also download the Streamripper plugin to save these episodes (or
music channels you listen to on Winamp) with optimally turning it off for
most of the time and leaving it minimized in the clock toolbar.
