Yes and many have reported that. Try skipping or fast forwarding to the end of the video so that it returns you to the menu, then select the first part of the documentary again and start over. Make sure you don't rewind or fast forward when watching as that seems to cause sync problems (at least for me). Only use pause if you have to. Hopefully that helps -- it did on my player.

Stuff like that used to be problem for me playing home-burned DVDs, using a cheap and old DVD Player. It beggars belief that commercially produced Blu-Rays on modern players are suffering the same issue.

I am in no hurry to switch format yet.

The first episode is as great as always, even though I'm always a little confused by the end. So they put Moriarity in a holodeck of a holodeck or was it just one holodeck?
Just one. Moriarty thinks he was beamed off the holodeck, but he was actually still on the same holodeck. When the crew gain back control of the computer, they end the program. Then they put Moriarty's program in a box where it can continue to run and Moriarty can live in blissful ignorance.

It took me years to get the joke at the end about the Enterprise crew's world perhaps playing in a box on someone's table. Ironically, by the time I got it, TVs were no longer boxes.
Of course, once The Doctor gets back from the delta quadrant with his Mobile Emitter and "photons be free" rhetoric, the whole question if it's acceptable to "imprison" sentient holograms inside a simulation or let them out with their own emitters would come up again in Federation circles.
It's somewhat ironic that Moriaty just came out again too early. By the time USS Voyager is launched (which is only a couple years later in-universe), they've got the ability to sustain holograms outside of the holodeck, as evidenced by EMH, albeit limited only to specific locations where there are "holo-emitters" installed. Nevertheless, if Moriarty had only been a couple years later, then Picard would've been able to fulfil the promise to actually let him walk around the Enterprise outside the holodeck.

I think the Enterprise crew's solution is probably much better though, because I doubt Moriarty would've been truly pleased at only being able to go certain places and do certain things within limits of holo-emitters, whereas the holodeck-in-a-box solution gives him a whole universe to explore.

I hope Barclay salvaged him from the wreckage of the Enterprise-D, it would be horrible to think he and the Countess were the only casualties.
She bought her first new car and you hit her with a drunk driver. What, is that supposed to be funny?
