    I had a problem with a video to play it on the VLC, and it froze when there was rapid movements.

    I install "ubuntu-restricted-extras" and that solved part of the problem (now the video goes a little better), but still continues a little freezing. I tried the same video in Ubuntu 15.10 and not froze, so the problem is located in the installation of eOS Loki (I have an ASUS laptop with multiple partitions).

    I suspect the reason is that in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (where Loki is based) are no longer available X.Org drivers.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hello josé,

    i have no experience with radeon graphic, because only nvidia cards, but for Radeon you can try the AmdGPU-Pro proprietary driver, is is any better with this?

    From what I've seen, AMD GPU-Pro I think it is not compatible with some older cards. Mine is a HD 6470M. Moreover, I have seen an alternative called "Oibaf", you know it?

    Regards.
