If your # distribution is having poor sound performance (means a lot stuttering) maybe # is installed. This was here the case: I tried to playback a 340p video from # and had bad stuttering in sound. When I switched to # the hickups were simply away. So I just uninstalled it as no other program seems to want it and my system now performs very well. It is btw. a # # with 1.7 GHz and 750 MB RAM ... So not the latest technology. ;-)
