    Hi there

    Try looking at your VIDEO drivers --VLC usually will work with ANYTHING.

    Also in the advanced Power Settings there's a setting or two that could influence video performance.

    If you've got anything that even THINKS it's NVIDIA video then the chances are you'll get some sort of problems --seems 95% of people who have Video problems are using some type of Nvidia video.

    Cheers

    Thanks, I use all NVidia/GeForce. This machine has a GeForce 8400 GS, I run a GeForce 210 on Windows 8, and I have a 78xx series on my Core Duo XP machine. They all run VLC great. The only problems I have with VLC are with the Windows 8 Beta version, which has absolutely NO video output whatsoever, and the Windows 10 tile version which has Video, bit it shows a green line across the bottom of the Video Frame. I also have VLC for iOS v2.2.2 in my iPhones and iPad Mini, and I use those to hook into local video content on my PCs and it works great. I use that version, because Dolby made them remove AC3 and a couple other codecs from the iOS version. I believe the Droid nightly versions are unmolested and can play all formats.

    The most use is on my Windows 8 machine with the 210 graphics card. It's pretty cheap, but it has a good HDMI output, and it can kind of play 60fps content. But most of my content are DVD rips from my own collection, I have a few BR extracted out too.

    The only problems I get are when the media files have been moved from drive to drive over the years, sometimes an error in replication gives rise to broken frames and I have to run Meteorite on the MKV files. I use something like AVIfix for AVI files, or, I just let VLC fix them, it only takes a few minutes on most cases.

    I always mess with the advanced settings, but whenever IO foul something up all I have to do is reset them all, and the default settings usually work great for all content. I never use VLC for Audio, I use Foobar2000 for that.

    windows 10

    switching back to windows 8.1 solved the issue. I read something about having multiple monitors and video crashed the other day. Not sure if that is the problem. However i do seem to notice the issue went hand in hand with the windows 10 update. I will stay with 8.1 for a bit and try windows 10 again in a month or so to see if they have fixed the issue. Maybe then I will start looking at my hardware. However I have tried playing video off 3 separate drives which cannot all possibly have an issue. I tried reverting from my new nvidia gtx970 to my old amd 9770 to check if perhaps it was an nvidia problem. No luck same problem. As well tried turning off accelerated video just to check still no fix.

    Usually what happens is VLC will detect a part of the video file that has a problem, and it tries to fix it. It's worse with AVI files but usually VLC will repair the indexes before it starts playing. Also, the location of the media can affect how it plays, if the media is on a networked drive, sometimes it won't play smoothly. Or, on a HDD that's slower or has bad sectors. I'd start by running CHKDSK on whatever HDD you have your media stored on, make sure there are no bad sectors, Also, make sure it's been defragged/optimized, cos that affects playback.

    I run Raxco Perfectdisk 13 on my Windows 8 machine, but it does no work in 10, you need Raxco Perfect Storage. It runs on a schedule, optimizes my drives starting at midnight every night.
    Desktop version.

    Since resetting Windows 10 on the computer, had no issues with VLC.

    Good. I have been seeing a lot of posts about Video Lag in Windows 10, especially if running YouTube in a window, when it gets minimized, it starts acting wiggy. But I haven't had any issues with VLC on Windows 10, it runs pretty great. But I keep my PCs all running 24/7 and each machine, at Midnight runs a Disk Optimizing program. On 10 I have to use Raxco Perfect Storage - I've had it running on a schedule for a week and the whole system runs really good despite only having 2GB of DDR2 Ram.
