Problem running VLC media player

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I downloaded latest version of VLC media player few days back. Initially, it wouldn't run, but on restarting the system, it ran fine. But now it is not working at all.

I re installed the same version once again, but that didn't solve the problem. So I downloaded an older version.

But even this one doesn't work!

Please help.

Problem running VLC media player


I'm not sure if you forgot to uninstall/remove the previous version of it before you installed the new one. Make sure that you remove first all previous installation or version of the VLC software before installing a new one/newer version.

Few things that you should have also mentioned:

Are you getting any error message or it just wouldn’t run?

Are you able to open VLC after installing but can't play anything?

Basically, what I can suggest is that you reinstall again VLC.

Try to do this:

  • Restart your computer after uninstalling/removing all VLC installation from your PC
  • Download again VLC from here:
  • Install VLC
  • Restart PC
  • Open it and try playing any video to see if it working

If you are encountering any error along the way, just let us know so that we can help you.
