When I set the audio output module to Pulseaudio, Audio memory, or Open Sound System, the sound works sometimes, but usually is very staticy.
If I switch to Alsa, the sound works fine, but if I pause the video, when I unpause it, there is no sound. I have to quit VLC and open it back up.
Any ideas how I could fix one of the other audio modules? My google search seems to suggest this is a bug with older VLC versions. I have VLC 2.0.3 (the packaged version that comes with this Ubuntu version).
