Which vlc are you running - the one from ubuntu repos or the one from
videolan itself? I have always had problems (eg, with vlc not even
working) with the ubuntu vlc. Go to videolan.org and use the 1-click
install and install their version.
You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
