I have an early 08 MBP. I used to play DVDs with Apple DVD player fine, but lately I've noticed that whenever I watch using subtitles (I watch a lot of foreign stuff), the subs are sporatically dropping out. There doesn't seem to be any pattern... if I rewind and rewatch the exact same scene over, the dropped lines of dialog are different than the first time. Happens with multiple DVDs, and doesn't happen when I pop the same DVDs into a standalone player. I don't know why it's suddenly an issue. It seemed to happen sometime after the 10.5.5 update, but that may just be a coincidence. My current workaround has been to use VLC media player... but VLC tends to be a bit glitchy when it comes to playing DVDs. Am I the only one experiencing this issue, or does anybody else watching subbed DVDs notice the same problem? I'm trying to figure out if it's a MBP issue, OS X, or just my computer.
