I've got a laptop with 130MB RAM
DVD PLayback with VLC Portable is choppy.
I suspect its because of the RAM shortage.
Windows 2k runs with AVG at 110MB RAM and VLC consumes an additional 40 MB and I guess the swapping is what makes it choppy.
If my guess likely right? Should Win2k be using 110MB (its a clean install)? Is there a DVD/Media player that consumes less RAM?
Thanks.

I know.
I'm talking about alternative solutions, though.
And running Linux isn't a workable alternative either.

I realize that, but 130MB RAM just ain't going to cut it... period.

Of course, you could check for other issues, like if the DVD player is running in PIO mode. Check the ATA/ATAPI Controllers in Device Manager for the channel in question.
