It'd probably be a good idea to add "on Windows" to the title. I got here through Google but the instructions are useless for me because I don't run that OS.

have tried various suggestions to no avail, but finally, this worked! my version is 2.1.5, i found it under Tools--->>>Preferences--->>> Audio --->>>Output Module, select the option "Windows Multimedia Device Output" from the dropdown menu and save.

VLC 2.2.1 has a very different window.

Although selecting "Windows Multimedia Device Output" solved it.

Thanks for pointing in the right direction.

Yeah it works with WMD !!!

Worked for me too! thanks!

Worked for me! Thanks!

Thank you. Some may say that ti is useless... It helped me and now I am able to enjoy my VLC again on a tiny barebone Intel Atom NT-435H.

Tank you for sharing.

If you have tried all these solutions and still not able to fix it. Check power option of your laptop. It might be on power saver mode. switch it to balanced mode and you are good to go with smooth video streaming.

Try this: Preferences -> (tab) Input / Codecs -> (tab) Other codecs -> FFmpeg -> (tick "Advanced options" box) in the drop-list next to "Skip the loop filter for H.264 decoding" select "All", save and restart VLC.
