Are you playing them all in the same player? If it was only the burned DVD's I would say that you have an incompatible player or bad copies but since it is the originals too I would think that your player may be going bad.

Did the DVD player used to play original DVDs without skipping? If so, then maybe your laser is getting dirty. You might try blowing the dust off the laser with compressed air.

I've used the cleaning DVDs but I've heard they can scratch the laser so it is safer to use compressed air if you can.

Good luck.
