@mahen I can confirm, logging in through ssh and issuing 'killall -9
vlc' unfreezes the desktop after a few seconds.

Jumping back and forth in  the video timeline really encourages a total
freeze.

Title:
  playing .mp4 in VLC freezes machine

Status in mesa package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  VLC was running fine on 15.10 but since upgrading, video files (e.g.
  .mp4) play for a few minutes and then crash the whole machine (i.e. I
  have to power off and on). Possibly linked is that audio (in web pages
  or playing audio files thru Banshee) loops (stutters) for about a
  second every few minutes (but doesn't crash the machine).
