Subject description: VLC's audio dropout occurs same place(s) in video
 

Two recent videos acquired by d/l have audio dropouts during playback in VLC 2.0.3. But they play okay in GNOME MPlayer 1.0.8b. Any idea why this is happening?

Slacko 5.5
Dell Precision 390
2.66 GHz Core2
4 GB DDR2 ram
2 TB hdd

I just installed VLC 2.1.0 from Slacko 5.5 PPM, Puppy-Slacko14 repo, and it installed but seems to be frozen on the pop-up for checking dependencies? Should I have uninstalled the previous VLC before running PPM? I tried playing a video, got an error, "No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format 'h264', Unfortunately, there is no way to fix this."

At this point, I'd like to uninstall VLC 2.1.0, but it doesn't appear in PPM. I neglected to update the repo before installing.

I ran Slacko 5.5 nonPAE as a liveCD. After updating PPM, I can't install any of the three listed VLC packages listed in PPM, puppy-slacko14 repo.

EDIT: I re-installed Slacko 5.5, for my purposes the best Puppy available, Will forget about VLC for the time being, just use mplayer.

Sometimes, you have to choose the audio device from the dropdown of about 50 different devices.

With these media players I always find that it is nice to have more than one so that if one doesn't work you can try another. I tend to have gmplayer, gnome-mplayer, VLC and Xine all available but it is rare that I have problems with any of them.

There may be some issues with those VLC versions (2.0.3 and 2.1.0) in those Slacko versions because even though they are all Slackware 14.0 there were different ffmpeg versions introduced at some point. I think 5.7 and 5.6 have the same ffmpeg as each other but 5.5 is different but I could have got that wrong. I am only a relative novice but found that compiling VLC with anything like full functionality was quite involved as you have to install stacks of other libraries before building. The version 2.1.0 does seem fine in Slacko 5.6 or 5.7 though.

check setting for hardware acceleration, I have seen its common for it to be turned off by default in VLC where others mplayer and xine have auto detection so its 'on by default' It makes a hugh difference in performance and CPU overhead drops to 1/3 or less.
