VLC - easily reproducible crashing. - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Mine Pauses throughout a video and crashes when I go to close it at the end. I only use it when I watch videos on my monitor so I don't have to reconfigure MPC everytime. I use MPC w/ HDMI out to receiver/projector... I have to reconfigure bitstreaming everytime I don't feel like turning the projector on to watch a TV show. So I just deal with it and haven't found a solution.

Are you deleting the cache, preferences, etc when you installed. Try running ccleaner after the uninstall. Clean out the temp folder also. Search and type in %temp% and delete everything, a few files will stay but that is fine. I never had any issues with mine, just have to wait for the cache rebuilt on a new install but that is it.

It's also randomly been, rather that displaying video, doing some weird thing called (Colour ASCII Art).

Try these and see what happens.

1) Settings >> Preferences... >> Video

And untick "Overlay video output". Then press "Save" and try a video.

2) First try resetting your preferences and cache files by going to:
C:\\Documents and Settings\\(Your username)\\Application Data

And delete the folder called "vlc".

3) If there is not difference then try, for example, the OpenGL video output module. To do this go to (in VLC):
Settings >> Preferences... >> Video >> Output modules

And tick the "Advanced options" tickbox. From the "Video output module" drop-down box select "OpenGL video output" and press "Save". Restart VLC and try a video.

Check your direct-x and make sure it is updated. Next would be a full gpu driver uninstall and reinstall it. You aren't using ubunta are you also?

I used to think the same thing, until I tried Media Player Classic Home Cinema and a proper codec pack (such as K-Lite, Combined Community Codec Pack, etc.). Actually, even better would be to forget the codec pack and install the codecs you need individually, but most people don't have the patience, myself included.

I have to agree. I first had vlc installed and had some minor stutters every once in awhile when it was running. I went and did clean install, wiped and installed codecs, and spent a pretty good amount of time tinkering with it and it still had the minor stutters.
I took it out and installed mpc-hc and now no more troubles. I'm sure that vlc will work for a lot of people, but for those of us that it won't - mpc is a great program that works!

I've discovered that this crash is not an immediate given thing; it depends on how long the video's been playing. As far as I know at the moment, up to at least five minutes in, I can double-click open a different video and it will switch with no problem. Same, I can stop it and then change with no crash.

I'm going to try these first.
