i upgraded from gutsy today and almost everything is working ok.

Sound is very poor quality in VLC player it seems to stutter or pop every few seconds.

in mplayer/totem it is better but out of sync.

any ideas would be deeply welcome.

i have seemed to have got this working now.

what i did is changed the output module to oss and it worked ok so tried alsa but changed (alsa device name) to another device (not default) and it worked and when i changed it back to the default settings it now all works.

Is your sound integrated or are you using an external device? My sound is integrated and seems to work fine, but a friend uses an external sound device and has problems sometimes (he uses XP).
