Mp4 videos lag [SOLVED]

Hi mates,
on my fresh AL installation mp4 videos just don’t play smoothly, there’s a lot of lagging, the frame flow is discontinuous, occasionally the videos freeze. It happens with both VLC and Smplayer.
The same videos however do play fine, on the same laptop and with the same players, if I launch them within a secondary Lubuntu partition I have in dual boot.
I suspect I miss some codecs or I don’t have the proper ones in place.
Any help to solve my issue?
Thanks in advance,
Sergio

thanks you both guys,
it was pulseaudio, I think trying to startup the connection without making it.
sudo killall pulseaudio && reboot
did the job.
Appreciate your help,
Cheers
Sergio
