I use Gom player about half the time as well. VLC 1.1.11 works just fine.
good I'm not the only one.. music play cuts out every 4-5 seconds then comes back.. Thought at first something with my network was boogered since all my media is on NAS but even if the files were local the stuttering continues.. went back to 1.11 for now, just don't feel like messing with settings right now, severe case of lazyitis.. Pretty sure my PC is powerful enough..
