VLC keeps crashing and audio is stuttering
Hi hope you can help,

After lots of unproblematic use, VLC started to crash whilst watching films and this gradually started getting more frequent and taking longer to restart. I downloaded a new version of VLC but now it keeps crashing when I try to load a DVD. Some films will load but then the audio is terrible, very stuttering. Visual and audio are fine when watching things online and from itunes. CD's will play but audio is a bit stuttery, not as bad as with DVD though....

Any advice would be great, thanks

I have been using VLC for at least a year with no problems. Try UNINSTALLING (COMPLETELY) and reinstall.

Also do a virus/malware scan.
