[vlc-devel] VLC in a windows 7 VM

Have any of you observed the behavior of the Player in a Virtual Machine?

If I run a windows guest on a ubuntu host, I am observing

1) That buffer gets dropped because the audio drift is too much.

Is this because the VLC player is polling/sampling at the clock which
runs on the VCPU and the emulated device is polling the VLC (buffer)
for more data
in the hosts clock. ??
