This problem just started happening today... I was gonna watch some Gurren Lagann on my netbook, but there was a problem with VLC not displaying the subs correctly, so I downloaded the CCC Pack with MPC and also downloaded VLC 0.9.9. Problem is, when I play the episode in MPC, the video starts lagging and the sound and video lose sync (as well as the subs). I don't have anything else running in the background... and I've tried using all the different performance modes. I tried using VLC but Im getting worse problems... first of all, it takes about a minute to open the video. Then, the subs don't even play, and the video and audio are out of sync. I thought it could be just the episode, but I tried previous episodes that used to work fine and those are having problems too... Anyone know what's going on?
