Why is there a sound delay on my YouTube videos?

Whenever I upload a video to YouTube, I get a time delay in the audio of about 10 seconds. The same video uploaded to Yahoo! plays the way it is meant to.

First check out http://uk.video.yahoo.com/watch/6695036/17391401 about Lanzarote and note the changes in music to suite the action, and also music over the end graphic which matches the start graphic.
Now watch the same video on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1SLmfrG87M and the audio is seriously delayed.

Is it my settings in Adobe premiere 7, maybe bitmap settings? If so, how come Yahoo can play correctly?

    Thank you Aibek, I will try that format for the next video and will let you know the result.

    Thank you for the link, I am using quickmedia converter at present.

    Strange one, my suggestion would be to convert the video to another format and try uploading it again. i would recommend converting it to wmv.

    We have reviewed some Freeware Video Converters in case you need one.

    Let me know how it goes
