I am frustrated. I have 3 systems running opensuse. one notebook running 11.0 centrino 1.7 with 1.2g of ram and KDE 4.1 and I have 2 systems running 11.1 one is an old 1.2 athlon with 512mb of ram and the other is an athlon “barton” 2800+ “2.08Gz” with 1G of ram. Both systems are running the best hardware for there time ASUS Sound blaster ect.
All three systems have the same problem. MP3 and video skips bad. doesn’t mater if its local or over the network this isn’t an isolated problem it must have came up before. Most of the video I play is DVR_MS over the network with VLC but other video files including youtube has the same problem. I have a M$ MCE in my living room but I want to upgrade to a myth back-end in my office but this problem has me worried. If all my Linux systems are having the same problem I can’t afford to loose my media.
I know its not a network bandwidth issue because my notebook is wireless and the other systems are hardwired and they have exactly the same problem. Its not just VLC ether because kaffene dose the same thing playing a downloaded movie locally. I have searched the Internet for the last 3 months trying to solve this and cant come up with any answers. BTW everything plays fine in VM box running win XP. Because of this I know it can’t be a hardware problem.
Dose anyone have any ideas.
