Linux 18.3
500 GB ROM
64-bit Sony Vaio (2011)

Action camera: Yi 4k+ made by Xioami Company, China

The videos have played before on this machine with Ubuntu 16.04 and if memory serves with Linux 17 before Ubuntu.

But now for some reason, the videos are not playing back through VLC on the computer now.

The videos are playing back well on the camera itself, meaning that the camera and sd card are not the problem.

I have read that 4k videos will not play on older machines, but they have played previously. And even when I use slower inferior quality, the videos are still breaking up.

The videos are not just jumpy, the pixels are fragmenting and completing destroying the image. Videos of all sizes seem to be affected.

I am wondering what controls in VLC, if any,I can fiddle with.

Any suggestions appreciated.
