VLC Crashes – Looking for Help

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys,

I have recently installed VLC player on my system. I often play .iso or .img files using VLC.

I download these files but when these files are not downloaded completely, VLC won’t play these files.

It simply crashes.

I also used API (application programming interface) for downloading the files, but it also crashes the program.

I get the following error on my screen:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Assertion failed

Program: C:Program FilesVideoLANVLCvlc.exe
File: vm.c
Line: 1544
Expression: 0
For information on how your program can cause an assertion
failure,see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts
(Press Retry to debug the application-JIT must be enabled)"

I tried to run a small part of the incomplete ISO file. For this, I used the file splitter HJ split to cut the first 10 MB portion of my ISO file. Now when I tried to run it using a VLC player, I again crashed.

I don’t know why is this happening?

Can anyone explain that has it anything to do with the windows? I have OS windows 32.

Please tell me if the same error is experienced for any other windows also.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks to post here.

For your VLC problem,see below few solutions. You can try one after the other.

1. I think when you download VLC from any site,that time some important but small fie are missing from download server or this program already corrupted before upload. So you should try  download  from another trusted site or VLC official website. Must remember that, after install complete,you find VLC setting for off auto update system or from control panel. You also see this auto update system when you install VLC. Just check and pick up the trick mark from screen.

2. If no. 1 solution cannot solve your problem then you need to update your windows or reinstall your windows and then try again no. 1 solution.

May be it is very helpful to your problem.

VLC player is a popular and famous video player. It’s a common problem for the vlc player users that sometime, it crashes. Well, its really a matter of harassment and users may bother with this issue.

My opinion is:

Remove the existing vlc file folder.

Download it again.

And install the latest version. It’s the easy way to solve that issue.
