Latency issues with Soundtouch 20 Series ll

   Does anyone have any ideas as to why, using a Macbook and Airplay, when watching YouTube clips, or films (.mov, .Flv,. mp4)  already downloaded, the sound and picture are in perfect sync, but when using the same Mac Book to watch BBC iPlayer or any TV station, there is latency issue which results in the sound and picture being out of sync by about a second?
Very irritating and renders the Soundtouch speakers redundant  for half of the uses I intended when i bought them. I am using the BOSE  SoundTouch 20 Series ll speakers, without BlueTooth, but with Wireless.
Any advice gratefully received. Thank you

Re: Latency issues with Soundtouch 20 Series ll

Hello gratton,
A full second of latency is considerable. It could be the case that the traffic of iPlayer or TV stations on the network is competing with the Airplay stream and causing a delay as a result. There are a couple settings inside routers – WMM, for example - which can help mitigate this kind of trouble. What model router do you have?
Thanks,
