VLC not working
Seems I've come across a bug or issue with VLC in 7068 and 7057 64 bit. Or its triggered some response with my system so it doesnt work.
Basically I've been using VLC for all media and for no apparent reason it no longer functions. The vlc process is listed under task manager, and in fact it leeches system resources as it ?struggles? to play a video (which i have to manually shut down else 20%+ of my damn resources are sucked away). VLC opens but refuses to play any video or audio. Windows Media Player works fine.
Tried a full reinstall of vlc, even a system restore to 2 days before the issue started. No luck. When i upgraded from 7057 to 7068, it was working fine again, and then by the next day, not working again. Kinda at a loss. Some association bug? Also, it may be a coincidence but my multimedia keyboard's play/pause buttons stopped working roughly same time (Merc Stealth kb). Wont work with winamp or wmp when it did before. Again, tried reinstall of drivers, programs affected etc. And I DO have the keyboard functionality ticked for winamp aswell.

Gave up on VLC
It worked great for so many years, loved how I could run it off a thumb drive! Anyways, whether it be windows 7 or the last update it doesnt work, had an update about 10 months ago and it stopped..I would have issues with running full screen or it would display a black screen or it would start to stutter..it just became unstable in every imaginable way. I spent months working on it. I did system restores, I uninstalled, reinstalled, I loaded older versions. It wasnt just me...all of a sudden something happened and the ability to play DVD's stopped for my brother, my buddy at work said he suddenly stopped getting sound after an update. I run it on an old xp machine but I give up and had to move on to GOM which works ..I mean it just works. I am no fan of their ads, I feel VLC when it worked was superior, but I am tired of spending so much time wrestling with one program out of 50 and feel the same rumorseful way I did when I finally dropped netscape, adobe, and now VLC. Thanks for the many years of quality free support and what was once the best player you could own.
