Video playback in Linux stops every two seconds

I have an old Athlon 800Mhz PC with a Matrox G450 video card here that is used for watching DVD and video, for most part it works quite fine, but every two seconds the video playback stops for a fraction of a second. It's a tiny but noticeable and annoying glitch.

Next time it happens, check what IO mode your DVD device is on. You can do it with hdparm. It probably should be about udma2, anything less then pio4 might cause this freezing.
