There's a strange problem where one of the accounts in my desktop plays media faster than normal speed. At first I thought this was a problem with the Epiphany browser, but then even the music player plays things fast. I recorded the screen to illustrate this:

I don't even know where or how to begin troubleshooting this. There are three user accounts in the computer and this happens in only one of them. Please help!

System Settings -> Sound -> (change the output device)

  • This worked. Just that there was no option to change device in the "Sound" option. I remembered that I had manipulated Sound device in Skype settings; I just had to revert it to fix the problem. Thanks a ton! ;) Jan 25, 2018 at 15:45
