vlc and Debian etch

Hi.
Anyone running etch having problems with vlc and videos? vlc always crashes when I try to view a video, doesn't seem to matter what the format is and the logs don't show any errors.
Cheers
jon

Re: vlc and Debian etch

I use VLC on OS X and don't have any problems at all. My Debian install doesn't have X so I can't test it, tried the VLC forum?

Re: vlc and Debian etch

Hi Dave.
Didn't find the answer on the vlc board but did stumble across the cause of the problem. All it needed was to delete the ~jon/.vlc directory and restart vlc. Seems it didn't like the stuff left over from the earlier version from the Sarge install.
Cheers

Might be worth notifying the package maintainer if they don't already know.

There's a bugs link at the bottom of the page.
