VLC media picture freezing (stuttering)

i love VLC as well as WMP classic. However, recently VLC player has been started to behave weirdly.

When i try to play high quality (blu ray) movies that are largers than 2 gigs in size skip,freeze, or not play at all VLC. though, they play just fine with WMP classic.

There are times when i need to use VLC due to its ability to switch audio streams. (i don t think you can do this with WMP classic).

anyone experiencing the same? how can i fix this?

i am on quad core amd 945 proc
4 gig ram
8600 gt video card
with latest wmpc, vlc and ace mege codec pack.
i also have the pure video software from nvidia installed.

you can definitely switch audio steams in MPC. Right click on the video as it is playing, and there is an audio option in the right click menu. If it isn't populated, check in the filters->audio menu, also accessed from the right click menu

try incresing the buffers (not sure which is for BluRay/dvd) - I have to increase when playing from my media server (via samba) and that fixes the judders/freezes.

Its in the settings somewhere (now if only I could remember)...
