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.
