I am using Microsoft Surface Pro 3 on which, I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it. I am streaming H264 encoded video to the Surface and I am using MPlayer to play the stream.
But MPlayer installed on Surface Ubuntu is not able to play H264 video stream smoothly, and I see meesages such as:

#RTP: 5 packets missed
#RTP: 19 packets missed
#left block unavailable for requested intra mode at 0 24
#error while decoding MB 0 24 28, bytestream (3758)

But on a regular Linux machine, I am able to play the stream using MPlayer smoothly.

What can be the issue with Surface Mplayer? and how can I solve that problem?

Thank you,
