what version of vlc do you have they updated last week i think. i have 1.1.2 maybe mine is old if you have 2?
but in answer to can vlc play av effects for just audio yes there is an option to run av effects you will have to go in to
the advanced options for the audio i belive to turn them on.? but i don't know if that is just one session or perment?
avi's are old windows format some can have a huge drain on the computer cpu it might be best to change them to
the smaller formats of mpeg 4 or wmv. both of which will hold audio with the video part.
and they have a much easier power drain on the cpu. if you do have a dual core or quad core system you should
also set up the cores you wish to use for which program. you could run mediamonkey on one core and the vlc on another
this will help with the power drain on the cpu, also you could set the priority to higher on win7 and realtime on xp. for both those programs, in order to do that i found an new program that will work for both xp and win7, its calledBill2's Process Manager.
and its free i found it on majorgeeks.com but its more likely on other freeware sites too.
i'm not sure why your not getting the plugin to move to the next one on your list unless the avi is causing the trouble as they are also huge files. and it could be causing the vlc player when used with the plugin to stop when the ram is used up.
which would be done when trying to change from one huge file to the next. if that is not the trouble then it might be the fact that the cpu runs the cycles up to 100% when changing files and it in combo with the huge file size might cause the crash of the vlc player?
