Is it happening while you watching videos or while trying to fast forward or skip?
If the torrent you downloaded had some errors and didnt complete, then you may get this skipping n popping.
Yea man Its doing it all through every video file, .mkv is the worst,they give
out short screams that on a quality sound card blows my eardrums.
You said "If the torrent you downloaded had some errors and didnt complete, then you may get this skipping n popping."
Kuntu my friend I've been Sharing since napster, over 10years,seen the coming & going of Mininova.
So I down-load from friends Ive known for years who know what there doing,Anyway these same files play
fine with CyberLink Power DVD 10.& Creative player, Haven't tried other players.
I prefer open source VLC.
Please Can Someone HELP.

Years of experience doesnt have any role to play in this.
Sometimes when you download via any method, there may be hash errors or incomplete pieces left in the download. Or it may also happen while you move the files on external HD or usb stick.
So it will show as 100% completed but in reality it would be missing .50 or 1 % and the video may skip/pop.
But since u say the same files play well in other media players then Vlc is is having an issue. Try re installing.(some ppl got rid of the issue by reinstalling.
And yes mkv/mp4 files do seem to skip/pixelated blocks appear when im trying to seek, but plays the video without any hiccup and sound remains perfectly alright.

reinstall it still it dont work use KMP.
also u got a VLC forum google it .
Thanks for your time Kuntu, I looked into what you say, Done tests to see Hash fails, None there
stopped file, then forced recheck just to see, File size MB433 Downed MB433.
Ive been on VLC forums, many people have what I think is same problem,but cant see a Fix anywhere
Tried Reinstall of vlc-2.0.1-win32 also cleaned all pre-fetch & old data, reg keys everything from COM
before reinstall,Not Fixed
Tried previous version vlc-2.0.0-win32,complete clean then install Not Fixed.
Went back to vlc-1.1.11-win32,after complete clean then install, Worked Perfect.
again Kuntu thanks for giving your time, will try update in 2weeks maybe a fix then.
