    Enabling DVD playback using VLC?

    GOAL: Play DVDs using VLC.
    PROBLEM: Image lags, like the PC is low on CPU.
    INFO: Used to work fine on this PC (I just lost the installation scripts that installed all the codecs, etc - Great!)

    1. sudo apt-get install vlc
    2. sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

    These two steps are mentioned in most HOWTOs on enabling DVD playback. And it does work, almost. It's just that the image is out of sync, and you can really see that the VLC struggles so very very much, even when it's not in full-screen mode. And it used to work, using the exact same PC (I haven't changed anything, I just reinstalled it).

    Check out the attached and you'll see what I mean.

    Any clues? Recommendations?
