I'm experiencing random 100ms dropouts when playing mp3's in windows media player and vlc media player. Playing flac files seems to be ok. My old machine was Pentium 4 based running xp and it played everything with no problems. I now have an i5 based pc with 16GB of memory, a SSD running Windows 8.1 but it can't reliably play mp3's! Any help would be appreciated. Does anyone know what to look for in the performance monitor?
Thanks in advance
