Re: VLC hard crashes

Remove the files in "/home/pi/.config/vlc" and start VLC again. When I do this, reloading still crashes VLC, I get the start of the permission's window opening and it subsequently freezes the system for a while until the login screen reappears. Essentially the exact same symptoms that PhilDenn is r...

Re: VLC hard crashes

I've tested around 30 video files on Pi3 and Pi4, with and without fkms enabled and windowed and fullscreen. No crashes. It's not clear if there is something in the video file that causes your crashes or something in your environment. Does this work: vlc -f https://download.blender.org/peach/bigbuc...

Re: VLC hard crashes

Sorry I can't provide much additional info since I have uninstalled it, but It was the version that came with raspbian buster, and I had done an apgrade maybe a couple days prior. This is on a 2GB pi4. The video in question is 1.7GB. I don't have an issue playing it with other programs like smplayer...

Re: VLC hard crashes

I ended up uninstalling it. It crashes so completely that I don't even want to risk testing it again for fear of data corruption. Might try again in a few months or so.

VLC hard crashes

I've tried playing MP4 videos with VLC but it freezes the entire pi4 up! It becomes completely unresponsive. Then I tried the alternate player that came with Raspbian and had no issue... anyone else had crashes with VLC?

Re: Upgraded, No Longer Reading Config.txt?

I have mine hooked to a TV and it overscans even though I have:

run the rpi-update and have the latest firmware

set disable_overscan=0 and tried different overscan values which make no difference

Am I missing something?
