Default Dvds and other higher-res videos are "skipping"

Whenever I try to watch a Higher-res video or DVD on my computer, both the sound and the picuture skip.
This happens with both Windows Media Player 11 and Media Player Classic

Videos and DVDs used to play just perfect, but all of a sudden, this is happening.

Here is a video of my problem (YouTube link)

I've got an AMD Duron and I have 512 MB RAM

I usually have around 30 - 35 processes running. I was forced to watch the rest of the movie on a TV...

That could have alot to do with it, too many processes or services running in the backgroung will sometimes cause that to happen. Also not having enough memory or updated codecs will cause that too.

you could try playing dvd's using realplayer as a media player or you can try free dvd software like :

http://www.cliprex.com/

or you could just shell out some $ and get a good player you know won't give you problems. one of my computer's came with Power Dvd :

That player is the best i have ever used so far...Hope that helps.
