DVD videos skip during playback.


Hi,

I've recently re-installed Suse 10.1 as I want to start using Linux gain instead of Windows.

Even though all the codecs are installed (libxine libdvdcss and the win32 codecs) for some reason DVD playback skips (both audio and video). This happens in both VLC and Kaffine.

I have tried turning the DMA for the dvd drive to both off and on using the hdparm command in the console and that doesn't work. I have installed the latest version of libdvdcss.

I have also reset BIOS defaults but that did not solve the problem.

I have installed Linux from the same disk before and have had no problem what so ever with anything.

There have also been no changes to my machine at all except for a BIOS update a few months ago, although I don't think that would have affected it.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi,

I've checked top, and the RAM and CPU usage is normal.
Come to think of it, I did make some hardware changes, but that was upgrading the RAM and buying a new DVD RW drive. Although I don't see how that could affect it.

Hi,

I've checked in xine and When I start playing the main feature I get the following message:

"The amount of dropped frame rate is too high, your system might be too slow, not properly optimized, or just too loaded."

MPlayer plays the videos ok.

Video playback is normal wen playing video files such as .avi either from the hard drive or from optical media.

Anyway, I'm going to try and investigate this further and see what can be done.
