    Can anyone figure out why will VLC hangs randomly while playing AVI files? the video freezes while the audio channel keeps on playing without interruptions. the latest k-lite pack of codecs is being used with default settings, with VLC.

    This is the laptop specification

    Mobile Intel Pentium 1.9Ghz
    RAM 240 mb
    C: 2.09gb free
    D: 12.6gb free
    WinXP sp2

    The video is being played from a USB 2.0 drive, where the free space is over 200 GB.
    The same video has previously played flawlessly on the same machine. :hang:

    Why do you need K-lite for VLC? If I am not wrong, VLC has it's own decoders, so it's a standalone player. Maybe try uninstalling k-lite and see if the problem continues?

    I was warned against using any of these 'codec-packs ' by users on other forums. So, I have only VLC, and
    FFDShow + media player classic installed for video playback. It works nicely.
