Updated to new vlc a week or so ago and now all media players are skipping and lagging like crazy.

Uninstalled it and its still doing it on media player classic and regular.

Thought it was codec so downloaded cccp codecs. installed those and its still doing it.

Anyway to remove all codecs and just reinstall everything new or what are my options?

It seems kind of odd that you see this slowdown with and without CCCP and across several media players. VLC generally just uses its own internal copy of libavcodec instead of the system codecs anyway.

Are there any other programs that are slow on your PC, or is it just limited to media players? I'm wondering if either you picked up some sort of malware with your VLC install or this is just badly timed with a bad driver update.

FWIW I am experiencing the same thing lately with VLC. I take a lot of videos on my phone for work purposes and they "stutter" a lot even with VLC which has been the good old standby. WMP won't even play them (codec issue probably).

Is this on a desktop / laptop computer? Local, Local Network, or Internet based content? You might check your event log for any disk errors. There are buffer settings you can adjust in VLC, I usually bump these up a little.

I thought VLC generally functioned independently of codecs like the CCCP codec pack.

I have noticed a slowdown everywhere but everything comes up clean for some reason.
