    Windows DVD Player Skipping

    I was watching a DVD using the Windows DVD Player, and the movie kept skipping. I thought it was a damaged DVD that Netflix sent me, so I sent the DVD back for a replacement.

    When I received the replacement today, it was also skipping. Then it occurred to me that the problem does not originate from the DVD, but from the DVD player.

    I played the same DVD that was skipping with VLC Media Player, and the skipping was gone.

    Has anyone else noticed this skipping problem with Windows DVD Player? Is it a driver issue? VLC Media Player is more versatile anyway, so I am glad that I have that alternative player installed.

    Yes, I'm experiencing exactly the same problem.

    Some of my older DVDs that struggle to play on VLC, work just fine in Windows DVD Player, however, the constant skipping, pausing, then fast forwarding to catch up, is irritating.

    It even occurs with brand new dvd's, so I know the problem is caused by a fault with Windows DVD Player.
