Anyone else having troubles with VLC (slowdowns) ?

Recommended Posts

Well.. VLC is a nice program, but when I play a VCD or SVCD, it will slow down after a while, and the sound will play before the picture or the other way around.. Is there a way to fix this..?

Also the quality isn't the best. I don't know if it's the QuickTime engine, but if I compare playback in VLC with playback in a player on my PC, it's much more blurry and color-distorted with VLC, especially with DivX movies :(

I haven't had any problems with it yet. I've only watched 2 VCD's on it so far.

The best case scenario is having quicktime 6 and the latest version of VLC installed. The latest version takes advantage of QT6's better engine.

Apart from that, I don't know what it could be.

You can also play SVCD's in QT6 if you have the MPEG2 plugin I think.

I play my Divx movies in QT6 as well.

But the MPEG2 component for QT6 costs ****loads of money, doesn't it?
