    When I play mkv or avi files on VLC, the video sometimes freezes or stutters. This didn't happen on my Leopard-right now I am on the Snow Leopard (not sure if that makes a difference or if its because I upgraded the VLC?) I am using the VLC 1.0.3.
    I searched old forums and found some tips-but they didn't seem to help...I tried going to Preferences in VLC, clicking on Files and raising the caching value in MS. Then I went to MMmap and checked the "use memory mapping" Neither of these things helped.
    Is there anything I can do...?

    I assume this is what you did when you changed the caching value:

    1- Open Preferences in VLC
    2- In the bottom left corner press All
    3- Expand Input /Codecs
    4- Expand Access Modules
    5- Select File
    6- Change the caching value to for example 1000.

    Hi! Yup, that is exactly what I did, I tried different values-didn't change anything.
