Yes, I have the same problem with Sin City. Its the only one I've tried so far, but dowsett34 I think you are right, its due to the audio stream - it has three AC3 streams, the first two are English & another language @ 448kb/s and 384kb/s. Both of these cause video stutter and audio clicks. The third is audio + commentary @ 192kb/s. This plays back perfectly.
Seems quite clear to me. If others find that some vobs play okay and others not can you report the details of the audio stream here?
I will give Archos a ring and see what they say.
Why are you ripping all three audio streams? I don't think the Archos has a way to select from these anyway does it? Like you can't swap between film soundtrack and Director's commentary stream, as far as I know.
I just rip the primary audio stream. I've never noticed jerkiness on playing back any vob so far (ripped about 1 dozen).
Yes, you can switch between them. You will see a flag with e.g. 1/3 indicating which audio stream you're listening to. Touching it will change the stream. As for why, I just copied the file across without any changes - simple. I don't think having only 1 audio stream will fix it as it already plays the 192kb/s stream fine.
Are you re-encoding the audio?
