    If you have weak PC you should use regular instead of lowlatency.

    Err, one is good for time-critical work, such-as realtime audio - the other isn't?

    Not really what you were asking, is it?

    As the other poster says, that should only matter if you're running on really ancient hardware.

    If you have an issue with VLC under Ubuntu Studio, there is nothing to stop you installing the package linux-generic and booting with that kernel rather than the lowlatency one. The differences between the two are, nowadays, nowhere near as-dramatic as they were a few years ago; most of the code for lowlatency is in the mainline kernel already, and I'd be surprised if you could tell the difference unless you set out to do near-realtime audio work with a generic kernel.
