Issue with vlc video source: muting sound at the end of each video


I recognized a playback issue with sound in video files played back with VLC video source.
When playing back a video, the last 1-2 seconds, are muted. This is the case with every video played.
Most of the files are mp4 with H.264 and aac audio.
The playlist is a local directory with shuffle play.

It seems that in this time the next video loads and the sound gets muted for this, but if you playback many short videos, the point/punchline gets missed through missing sound.

Is there a setting to configure playback without interruption in sound?

Thank you for reading.
