View Full Version : [ubuntu] Video freezing during playback from USB disk

Hey, I'm using VLC on Ubuntu 8.04.1 and when I play videos from my external USB hard drive, sometimes the video and audio will freeze for about 20 seconds, then playback resumes.

I'm guessing here, but I'm assuming it's something to do with how the drive is mounted in Ubuntu since when I've used VLC in Windows with the same files, I never get the freezes, so it can't be the drive's fault.
