1) I did notice the audio sync problem.

2) There was no flash in the initial green circle test. Apparently the conversion process killed that frame.

1) I too noticed the audio delay.

2) Looking at this video frame-by-frame at 4:01-4:05, I can confirm #3's comment: the frame with the flash is really missing. There's a frame with the green circle just above the horizontal, and the next frame shows the green circle just BELOW the horizontal. There is a frame missing in between, which would have contained the green circle exactly level with the red dot, and in this frame the green circle would have contained the white flash. And in the repetition at 4:19, this exact frame is present!

TLDR: #4 does not need to visit a doc.

The flash did not happen. Period! YouTube version is fake, not original! They are trying to manipulate you.
