VLC keeps crashing

Post by msdobrescu » Sat Oct 28, 2017 21:15

Hello,

Since last update bunch VLC closes/silently crashes when I try to change the current position in the video or to restore the playback time.
Am I the only one with this problem?
What happens, how to fix this, is it a bug?

Regards.

This is true. VLC keeps crashing.
When started from the GUI(gnome), it just plays one video.mp4 and then crashes.
Different from the behavior you describe, it is possible to change the current position of the video via slider but not via rewind button.
When started in a shell(the same command: # vlc ...) it works fine.
See:

Mine crashes when I change the current position via the slider too, when it resumes the video, when I change the current TV channel.

Still happening and no clue.
It seems to be related to specific codecs, but for some encoding versions crash and for some not.
Don't know what to look for. Any clues?

you can try to reset vlc configuration removing vlc configuration. It is stored in ~/.config/vlc folder

Code: Select all

$ mv ~/.config/vlc ~/.config/vlc.bak
restart vlc

Same here. Latest 2 months VLC crashes constantly. Mkv, mp4, iptv streams, its just hang or crash. I cleared all configurations, reinstalled VLC without effect. Im running latest KDE5 with all the updates available. Using nvidia 1050 with official nvidia blob drivers with 4.14.0-sabayon #1 SMP Wed Dec 20 20:56:33 UTC 2017 x86_64.
