I've had the same (annoying) problem. You have to manually change your audio-device settings in VLC's preferences. See the screenshot below:
To find your sound-card, use the following command in the terminal.
sudo aplay -l
I had the same problem: vlc would lose audio after seeking forward or back, on Kubuntu 14. I changed Preferences (Simple) -> Audio -> Output Module to Alsa & Output Device to 'Playback/recording through PulseAudio server'.
Selecting the same options in Preferences (All) didn't work. Go figure.
You need to close & reopen vlc for changes to take effect.
