vlc stops

Postby froda » 2020-08-25 21:34


My VLC player frequently stops. at the top right corner it says "VLC stopped". Iḿ running Debian 10 and the version of VLC is 3.0.11 Vetinary. I can`t kill the process in the terminal either. It just won`t work. I can run VLC from the terminal and open up a video file.

Does anyone know what might be the problem?

I can not imagine what the problem might be , since you don't bother to show any of the output, and there should be some if you are running it from a terminal.
For example:
Code: Select all
parrot$ vlc
VLC media player Vetinari (revision
[000002d9dccd9f60] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-cuckoo'
[000002da52e8b160] qt interface error: Unable to load extensions module
[000002da53b2a060] main playlist: playlist is empty
Non-native QFileDialog supports only local files
Non-native QFileDialog supports only local files
Non-native QFileDialog supports only local files
[000002da1799f560] avi demux error: no key frame set for track 1
QObject::~QObject: Timers cannot be stopped from another thread

I can not duplicate the problem, but I see there is some problem with mine, as well:
Code: Select all
 qt interface error: Unable to load extensions module
<This does not seem to effect anything.
Nothing in my play list, but I do open up a video, but it played fine, any way, the terminal out put would be the first thing I looked at, ...Maybe one of our local psychics can identify the problem , but I can't.

Even better would be the terminal output when it's playing one of your problem files and vlc freezes:

Code: Select all
vlc <problem-file>
