I posted this in newbie forum by mistake first mod feel free to del that post.
I have a new computer that skips on all my MP3 tracks, my computer is as follows:
ASUS M378-EM (AMD 780G chipset, im using onboard analog audio)
AMD Quad Core 9650
4GB DDR2 1066
1TB SATA seagate 7200.11 HD
Samsung 22X SATA DVD burner
It skips on all songs, i know it is not the files cause when i upload them to my cellphone they play fine, i can also burn a Audio CD from the files and it will play fine in my car and in linux from the audio CD. Also the same files play fine in windows(they are stored on a NTFS partition if that matters). I am using VLC as well as the stock mint player and they both skip(VLC skips less).
Upon further inspection it seems linux Mint is switching the CPU usage for VLC VERY rapidly between my first and forth core, could this be causing the skipping? Can i lock VLC to use one core only and if so how. Thanks guys, also i think the audio drivers are fine cause video files with audio play fine no lagging or skipping, also using VLC which is wierd.
