Hello everyone,

I have a netbook from eMachines, eM350. I'm using my netbook to download and play videos. I would go to YouTube to look for videos and download them. After downloading, some files are in mp4 format and some flv. Now, I use vlc to play those videos but  at some mp4 file vlc starts to lag, the sounds are still playing but there is no video. What is really wrong with this? Is it vlc? if so, what other player can you suggest.

Your VLC stands for Video LAN Client. If your VLC player is giving problem is video then the problem might be into its output layer. So resolve this problem, if you are windows user then go to Control Panel -> Systems -> Hardware manager and then click on the Advaced, right click on the DVD player and tick on the DMA. Also another way, you should uninstall your outdated drivers and then install the latest version of it. If it’s giving poor quality of video, then it might be because your hard disk drive it getting overloaded or the RAM speed is unable to match the video. Also if your CPU got full traffic of tasks then also it could distort your video quality.
