I have used VLC media player for some time now to play movie and music. But recently am getting an error when I open the program as shown below.

Can anyone help?

VLC media player has just crashed. Do you want to send a bug report to the developers team?

Your VLC media player crash problems are mainly due to wrong settings or cache being broken.

This can be solved by deleting VLC preferences and cache.

  • Go to your Start menu > All programs > Video LAN > Reset VLC media player preferences and cache files.
  • The other way to do it is Go to IE > type %APPDATA% into address bar > Hit Enter > Delete VLC folder in your AppData folder.

Both these approaches will fix your issue.

Hello,

VLC Media Player is an awesome media player supporting a large number of media file formats. The problem to you seems to be because of bad installation or older version. To fix this issue, check the followings:

1. Download the latest VLC Media Player.
2. Uninstall the older one, then install the latest one. While installing, when the section "Choose components" comes, don't forget to check the tick telling "Delete preferences and cache".
3. Click "Next".

Also, delete the temporary files from "%appdata%", restart your PC.

Now your VLC issue will disappear for sure.
