Hi all you Linux gurus out there. I'm trying to get my family interested in changing over to Linux, but there's one rather embarrassing problem: DVDs that play just fine on Windows (even on ancient laptop) won't play well on Linux (Mint 9). In movieplayer the picture is fine, but the sound quality is lousy, like a warbly old cassette tape. VLC has no problem with the sound, but the movie skips sections (it will just stop for a second or 2, and then carry on with sound and picture at a point (1 or 2 seconds) later on in the movie. Dual core AMD processor with 2MB RAM. Our old 1MHZ laptop with 256K RAM honestly does much better with windows (using either powerDVD or Windows Media Player). Any way to fix this?
Thanks so much
