Sync problem when watching video playing on computer on flat screen monitor

This is not so much a part of the discussion but a technical question.

  A friend gave us a DVD with a film that played on the computer but
not on a DVD player and we connected our Mac Powerbook to our flat
screen monitor with an hdmi cable and downloaded VLC software. We
could see the video and it looked good but the audio was way out of
sync. We tried using the controls in LC preferences but it did not
help. Perhaps the movie is recorded out of sync? Any tips?
