Whenever I play DVDs in Media Player Classic, they always skip. I'm thinking it might be the crappy sound card I'm running at the moment (Sound Blaster PCI) but I have a fast computer, so that should make up for it.

Windows XP Pro
Athlon XP2600+
512MB RAM
GeForce 5600 256MB

Any help would be appreciated.

maybe your dvd drive needs to be cleaned, or try using another media to see if you get the same problem. Try videolan or window media player 10.

To be honest while Media Player Classic is graet for most stuff it is poor at DVD playback.

Media Player 10 does a better job but if you can afford to buy a player, I'd go with PowerDVD, which I've been using for years with no problems.

Maybe you have a renderer/codec selected that requires a lot of power. Use either the Overlay Mixer or VMR7 (windowed). I use VMR7 (windowed) on my machine (which is kinda close in terms of power) and I get no problems at all. Oh and if you use ffdshow, make sure you have too many filters (like postprocessing) enabled as that can slow things down as well. I hope that helps.

Thank you so much Snake 785! When you mentioned VMR7, I noticed in the options that I had to set it to VMR7 Renderless to get the new pixel shader option to work and now my DVDs run flawless. Thanks so much. :)

Edit: They even look better now too.
