    Default VLC closes with any type of vieo

    HI,
    I'm a newbie in Linux. I have installed VLC for media playback (video, audio, DVD). At the beginning VLC was working perfectly, but since yesterday when I try to playback any type of video file (FLV, AVI, VOB, MPG, DIVX, ...) VLC closes immediately. I have no idea what I did to my Open Suse 11.1 installation, recently I installed 'Pure Data', Blender, Java SDK 6 and the usual automatic updates.

    Any help will be very welcome, but please remember I'm really a newbie in Linux (just 4 months), before windows users.

    Thanks in advance.

    First, from which repo did you install VLC from?
    Second, try running VLC in a console and see if it'll give you any error messages while trying to play a file and then post them here
    Third, lets see your repo list. In a console, type the following: zypper lr

    Hello microchip8,
    I was some days outside and just can reply to your advice. Today I tried to re-install the VLC and still don't work.

    >> First, from which repo did you install VLC from?
    I installed it directly from vlc repositories:

    Type: HTTP / Servername: download.videolan.org /
    Directory: /pub/videolan/vlc/SuSE/<SUSE Version> Replace <SUSE Version> in the Directory above with your installed SuSE Version

    I also tried the meta package they have in videolan.org.


    >>Second, try running VLC in a console and see if it'll give you any error messages while trying to play a file and then post them here.

    It gave me error here as it showed.

    Default Re: VLC closes with any type of vieo

    OK, I think I found the problem.

    I changed the settings of my desktop, avoiding things such desktop effects. Then I played again MPG and AVI files, and everything works perfectly.

    However the question remains. Why when I make use of desktop effects VLC crashes?

    I'm running openSuse 11.1 in a HP pavillion ze5300, 1GB in ram, and a ATI Radeon RS200 4337.

    Thanks for your time.

    Not unusual. VLC is not the best IMO. Smplayer much better. However you already broke the golden rule. You should only install ONE package from the VLC repo and it ain't VLC player but libdvdcss. Everything else should come from Packman.
    See this guide:
    Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums
