Note: This fixed my problem with VLC player and is not a guaranteed fix for your problems in VLC or in life. If you do something wrong i am not responsible.

Thanks to joejoerowley for his work and his persistance to find a solution to my audio stutter problem in VLC.

Step 1: Open VLC

Open VLC
<p>VLC is a nice free video player. I used total <a href="http://www.etinysoft.com/total-video-player-for-mac.html" rel="nofollow">video player for mac</a> which is based on VLC. It is really great.</p>
<p>I used total <a href="http://www.etinysoft.com/total-video-player-for-mac.html" rel="nofollow">video player for mac</a> to play all my video and audio files. This player is very powerful, support so many video formats and it support to play 4K videos smoothly.</p>
<p>Seems to have fixed my problem in Xubuntu (XFCE). I chose ALSA audio output and it has so far saved me a bunch of grief.</p><p>Thanks Trustmefada!</p>
<p>FIXED! VLC skips audio (briefly mutes) every few seconds. I&rsquo;m sorry to <br>say that none of the suggestions in the forums fixed the problem for me. I play downloaded movies on my TV using an old Sony Desktop. <br> I had been trying for days to solve this problem. It only happens while <br> playing 3D movies, which are my largest files (over 2GB). I usually <br>watch 720p movies that are rarely over 1GB with no audio mute every few <br>seconds. In the process of searching for a solution, I discovered by <br>serendipity that when I turned off my laptop (elsewhere in the room), the skipping <br> stopped. When I turned my laptop back on, the skipping started again. I <br> have no idea why this is so. All I do know is that my TV desktop and <br>laptop are linked through a wireless modem. They both use Win 7 64bit, <br>and are connected by a &ldquo;homegroup&rdquo; which only shares common &ldquo;shared <br>files&rdquo; not including the movie file. My movie files are all on an <br>external hard-drive that is connected to the TV desktop computer. So, <br>that&rsquo;s it. Turning off my laptop solved the problem. Not by adjusting <br>any VLC settings (which I reset to default). I do not believe that I use <br> any &ldquo;Airserver&rdquo; software. By the way, ALL of my movies play perfectly <br>on Windows Media Player, including the large 3D movies, without any <br>audio skips; and with my laptop on. Go figure. I do not like to use WMP <br>because it does not play the downloaded subtitles, and it lacks many <br>features that come with VLC. I am happy that I get to continue using <br>VLC.</p>
<p>I had a problem with VLC audio hiccuping randomly, and while trying to determine if the CPU load anything to do with it using Microsoft Sysinternals CPUSTRES tool, I discovered the hiccups ceased when under medium to heavy load! My system has an AMD Phenom X6 and openhardwaremonitor showed CPU clocks as low as 800Mhz during normal operation, the hiccups occured while the CPU clock was throttled to a higher rate. When over half load, the CPU clocks stay at around 2GHz and no hiccups occur. </p><p>So, to make a long story short, I switched off AMD Cool 'N Quiet in the BIOS, which apparently limits CPU throttling to between 2.8GHz and 3.6GHz and have no problems since.</p><p>I can't rule out that this is a problem with my hardware setup and/or Windows 8.1, but worth giving a shot if everything else fails.</p>
Cool. Looks like it could help a lot of people, definitely will use this if needed.
Worth a shot, thanks.
Well Done! This fixed my problems too! +1
