When I play a 1080p 10bit-depth video with VLC-player, the video goes choppy and even freezes.

I'm using Dell Inspiron 1525 and VLC 2.1.2.

Windows Vista Home Premium.

Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Due CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz

Memory(RAM): 3.00GB

System Type: 32-bit Operating System

  • VLC version? Operating system? Tech specs? – and31415 Feb 15 '14 at 0:20

Most likely your GPU is not strong enough.

Can you give us more details on your specs? What GPU, CPU are you running. It could also be that your Disk I/O is poor. Are you streaming this over a network, or is it on the local computer.

I had a similar problem with VLC not playing 4k videos on my pc (fx8350, 2x970 sli!). Simple fix was to turn off sharpen and now it works perfect. I was messing with codec settings, D3D and buffers and all that kind of stuff for ages and nothing was working..

I didn't think something like the sharpen option in effects and filters would have such an impact.. initially any 4k video would play for about 3 seconds and then freeze up with the audio still going in the background.. I know this is an old thread but it might save someone some hassle someday..
