I'm a newbie, so please be gentle. And apologies in advance if this question has been asked before.
I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS onto my Dell Mini 10 and, in general, am very happy with it. I understand that this particular model does have a number of compatability issues due to the OEM hardware installed, and the one I am experiencing is as follows:
The audio output breaks-up whenever trying to play a movie or youtube file. The video part of the package is about as good as I can expect, but the audio is terrible, jumping frames left, right and centre.
I have installed the VLC Media Player and the Minitube player which are no better. Is there a work-around, or fix. I'm not a complete novice, though neither am I a hardcore programmer. I really don't won't to go back to Windows...
Thanks in advance.
