Perhaps some do not use VLC, but in any case it seg faults?

Anyone have this problem?

Hi Daniel.

I'm only referencing playing DVD's here, but vlc plays them ok on F9, as does Mplayer, and I've just got Kaffeine playing them as well, using the gstreamer engine.

I'm using an Asus M2N-X Plus mobo with an ati pci-express graphics card. Fedora 9 has chosen to use the radeon driver for this card, but other distros on this same machine have chosen different graphics drivers. For example, the Archlinux install, which has the same vlc version as Fedora 9 is using the ati driver, and vlc works ok on that.

I also have Ubuntu, and Kubuntu Intrepid 8.10 installs on the same machine. they are using the qt version of vlc (0.9.4 Grishenko), and both these distros have installed using the vesa graphics driver. Vlc will not play dvd's. I get the menu, and about a half second of sound and video, then the playback stops. I won't ramble on, but think this may have something to do with the vesa graphics driver on the Ubuntu/Kubuntu Intrepid installs, and the vlc qt version.

I removed vlc from the Kubuntu Intrepid install, and installed the older version of vlc from the Kubuntu hardy repo, which has vlc 0.8.6a janus (wxWidgets Interface). That version of vlc works fine on Kubuntu Intrepid, with the vesa graphics driver.

On my Kubuntu/Ubuntu Intrepid installs, Totem, Ogle, Kaffeine, and Xine play dvd's ok. It's just a problem with the qt version of vlc (0.9.4 Grishenko).

I've just rebooted to F8 on the same machine. Vlc is version 0.8.7 Janus (wxWidgets interface), and plays dvd's ok, and that is using the vesa graphics driver.

Personally, I'd try downloading, and installing the F8 version of vlc from the rpmfusion repo, if it's still available, as F8 is now no longer supported.

Just some observations from problems I've had with vlc on Ubuntu/Kubuntu Intrepid, using the qt version of vlc, and perhaps related to the graphics card driver being used.

Sorry if this is a bit of a ramble, but I've already posted my problem to 3 mailing lists, including videolan, but with no replies. I've fixed my vlc problem on Ubuntu/Kubuntu Intrepid, by using an earlier version of vlc. The same may work for you.

All the best.

nigel.

You could try :

vlc --reset-config
vlc --reset-config, is exactly it!

Thanks!
Dan
