  When playing a video, the whole screen will freeze (incl. Ubuntu
  itself) until the video is done playing

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  With some videos, it freezes VLC (windowed) and the whole computer. I
  can still hear the sound playing, and the computer operates normally
  again after the video is done playing.

  While it's frozen, I can't move the mouse, none of the hotkeys work
  (ctrl alt t, alt tab, etc), and none of the screen updates. Even the
  vol up/down keys on my Thinkpad don't do anything anymore.

  Once the video is done playing in VLC, everything is back to normal.

  It doesn't always happen with the same video, and it's not always at
  the same point in the video.
