Buffering videos on Ubuntu

Hello all,

When I was running Windows OS on my laptop I was able to buffer and pause movies I watch on Dvix. Now that I'm running Ubuntu, I cannot pause the movie anymore. Whenever I pause it, I have to watch the movie from the beginning. Also, I cannot let the movie buffer to completion. How can fix it so that it will allow me do this?

Thank you

Is this with every player you try, or just the default 'movie player'? Personally I use this vlc:

I think it's in the repos, but failing that fire up a terminal and enter: sudo apt-get install vlc and you should be cooking on gas.
