    Angry Video choppy, audio buggy

    First lemme say that up until this point i have LOVED running UBUNTU Feisty Fawn Gutsy Gibbon & Hardy Heron

    The problem started when i installed Hardy.

    When i try and watch a video (with VLC) the video is jumpy (they were fine with the previous 2 versions. I have an ATi video card

    Another problem is when i am listening to MP3s and have FireFox open and scroll down a page the Rhythmbox cuts out.

    Any Help would be greatly appreciated

    Dave

    Do you have the same problem with other music apps - or is it just rhythmbox that crashes?
