VLC - easily reproducible crashing.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
If VLC is playing ANY video file and I ask it, while doing so, to play ANY other video file, it immediately closes, and the next time I run it, it throws up a dialogue saying VLC crashed and asks if I want to send a report to Devs.

Why?

Does it do it if you tell it to play the same video file (i.e. same resolution, formats, audio sample rate, video fps, etc)?

Does it do it if you stop (not pause) the video, then play another one?

If you answered no for both, then most likely the video renderer you're using can't handle video parameters like resolution changing during playback. Try changing the video renderer in VLC's settings.

No. There is no debug info of any kind. VLC closes out with no error message, then the next time it runs it says it crashed and asks if I want to send the devs a report. I choose yes or no, then it plays the file I opened.

Still crashes with 1.1.9.

It's also started crashing randomly, but infrequently. Also crashes if a video is paused for about a minute.

I quit using VLC because of how buggy it was. I started using K-Lite and never went back. It uses Media Player Classic for playback. Very stable with all of my subs, no issues ever using K-Lite + MPC

probaly a vid driver problem id uninstall my vid drivers run driver cleaner and reinstall latest if not that def a codec issue , if on windows why not switch to media player classic home cinema with madvr there is no comparison in quality and never had a crash in mpc in 5years ive used it, imo vlc is way overrated as a media player only good feature is being able to play rar files
