I'm new to VLC 0.9.2 and what's with the lag? Be it the lag between pausing or simply skipping ahead, it's kind of annoying. Is there a fix or better version out there?

I use that version of VLC all the time and have never ran into any lag or pausing/skipping.

How much ram do you have on your mac?

Hmm...just to reiterate: I hit pause and the audio stops but the video will continue for at least 3 more seconds until it decides to pause.

I have 2GB of ram.
