When VLC Media player is used for playing 720p+ videos, it starts out fine. But when we seek, it stops producing any sound at all (like the player is in mute) and when we seek for couple of times more sound returns. Problem occurs every time in Ubuntu (most of the recent versions). I am thinking it might be specific to hardware (not sure). VLC works perfectly in my secondary OS in the same hardware (windows) so the hardware is not faulty.
This problem is already reported by many people but none has posted any solution. If you have any workaround or permanent fix for this, Please post..
Note: installed VLC pulse audio plugin - Didn't fix the problem
Hardware tested and issue found to be in;
- Intel motherboard DH77kc
- Lenovo G50 board
