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 

Thank you,
