Fixing video playback issues with VLC Media Player

Tuesday, 9th February 2010

We are going to fix the chopping, skipping and stutter of the audio with VLC Media Player that sometimes is experienced.
First, open VLC and go to Tools > Preferences. (CTRL+P for those who cant find it)
Hit the Audio tab and change Output: Type to Pulseaudio audio output;
As shown in the picture below:

vlc preferences

Now, change the Show settings option to All and go to Input / Codecs > Access Modules > File ;
Change the caching value to 1500 (there are 1000 milliseconds in a second), 1200 should be okay as well.

You can adjust this a little higher or lower later. As long as it’s 1000 or above, it should be fine.
