I created a fresh install of debian stretch amd64. In that I created a

sound file or youtube video. It is grainy/distorted and outright horrible.
Google searches mentions something about MSI and those approaches are
simply not accepted by win8. So, I could not use them. I am wondering if
there is something fundamentally wrong with windows guests or is there a
setting that I missing.
I have yet to see any virtual machine be as responsive as a host. The
latency is especially obvious when playing multimedia -- e.g. audio and
video. (I assume video games would be equally bad.) If you want good
audio and video performance, install Windows 8 directly on hardware.
