This is a video that was shot with an iPad mini, and plays well on it. It’s after import it onto my Mac, using a usb cable and Photo.app, and play it from there, that I have this problem: video lags audio.
It takes a lot more system resources to produce a few frames of video than it does the same amount of audio. Start by checking to see if your hard drive is more than 80% full, and get it defragmented. Shut down any unnecessary programs such as messengers or other programs that might be using memory or CPU cycles.
Did you try using a different Video player app than the one you are using?
