In fact as edwinksl has pointed out you appear to have left one of the vital settings checked: Use only one instance when started from file manager instead of having it unchecked. Works nicely with this setting unchecked when I tested on my own system: A little difficult to listen to both at once mind you :) Note: There are some limitations on this ...

I Found a Solution that Somehow fix the Problem. By Setting this Option Preferences > Input/Codecs > Hardware-accelerated decoding to "disabled" you Can fix the rendering. It's still too slow for Hi-res Videos but works in most cases.

None of the Module changes made anything better. Some made it worse. What finally fixed it for me was just unselecting "Enable Time Stretching Audio": Tools > Preferences > Audio > Enable Time Stretching Audio (uncheck) This was checked by default (I know because I uninstalled and reinstalled and also reset preferences), so I don't know when it became a ...

Altering input video by command line: You can request a specific video size from youtube from the commandline by using the --preferred-resolution option.

That's a known problem in Linux. One of the main developer, Jean-Baptiste Kempf, announces a fix for version 3.x. Look here: forum.videolan.org Hi There! I saw uPNP was enabled on VLC 2, so I tried it but everytime it found my plex server under upnp under local network, and I clicked it, after a long wait it would crash. I thought I'd be clever ...

I've tried the Spatializer filter, with terrible results. A generic and simple solution is to remap the Pulseaudio sink. Run the following and take note of the sink the application is using: pacmd list-sinks | grep name: Then run the following, replacing <NAME> with the sink name found above: pacmd load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=mono ...

Many vlc issues will be solved by using mc3man's multimedia PPA for Trusty Tahr. First backup your vlc config: mv ~/.config/vlc ~/.config/vlc_bak Then add the PPA: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade This should update your existing packages but to be sure you can run: sudo apt-get install vlc ...

Just open VLC, press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + P to open "Preferences", in "Interface Settings", inside the box "Look and feel", uncheck "Show systray icon". Restart VLC to check. Voila! :D

Simply changing Hardware decoding from VDPAU video decoder to VA-API video decoder via X11 in Input / Codecs > Video Codec > FFmpeg solves the problem.

vlc does not work on either windows or Linux for the backdrop. The only thing it does is play full screen with no controls. It does NOT place the video in the background. I have been working with it for over two years and that is the best I can get out of it!

I had the same issue (HP EliteBook 840 G1) and it was related to the HDMI sound output on my hybrid graphic card (Even I had no external HDMI monitor connected). And therefore I did what I already had done in previous ubuntu 14.04 release, I disabled HDMI sound output and only left PCH sound output: Check the sound outputs: cat /proc/asound/cards 0 [...

Looking around, it appears to be that some people were able to solve this issue simply by using OpenGL. You can try changing Preferences -> Video -> Output and switching Default to OpenGL. It would also be helpful if you posted the output of: lspci | grep VGA so that we could know what GPU you're using. You could also try installing graphics drivers (...
