VLC-choppy playing


I'm using VLC to play some DVD's but it's all choppy and pauses and skips parts. The audio is fine however. I'm running openSUSE 10.2

Check to see if you have dma enabled on the dvd drive. Open a console and run:

$ su
<enter root password>
# hdparm /dev/dvd

dma appears to be enabled on yuour dvd drive. Try using another app to play your dvds and see if you get the same problem.

I use Xine to play DVD and it works fine for me. I am also exprienced flickering while I used VLC. You may test with Xine. Also I hope that you have libdvdcss library file installed properly in your system.
