I'm having trouble playing a video I encoded in a .mkv 1080p format through VLC on my laptop. Everything runs fine except for every couple minutes while the file is playing, the video becomes really pixelated.
If I continue letting it play, it corrects itself after about ten seconds. But if I playback the area where it distorts, it usually plays fine. But sometimes I have to play it in the same area several time before it removes any distortions. So I know it's not a problem with the file. So could it be a video RAM problem?
I'm not sure how much video RAM my laptop has, but seeing as how the video is 1080p, I wouldn't be surprised if it is being filled up. Can anyone help me identify the problem and help me fix it?
