When I run video from a shared network drive (coming off of a Windows XP machine) videos run fine. When running a video from the local machine's drive (ubuntu 8.04.1) the video runs fine until I pause it. Once paused, the video is slightly jerky. Enough for me to notice, but probably not enough for the "general joe" to notice until you have a full screen with lots of motion.
Not sure how to troubleshoot this. I've thought about copying a video file to the windows share and then run them one after the other pausing in the same(ish) location with debug file turned on.
What do you think?
