    Well, I use VLC religiously as my video player, but it just stopped opening.

    I tried reinstalling and everything.... I double-click the icon, nothing. Or, I click the icon on the dock, nothing.
    Just won't seem to open.

    What could be causing this, and how can I fix it?
    Because I really dislike not having a playlist with my Quicktime, and since I'm watching AVI files, they won't work in iTunes (even though people say they should since I have the codec, they just don't go into there).

    Had the same problem. Try dissinstling and erasing files from the following folder:


    Then re-install it. If this doesn't work, try MPlayerOSX (http://mplayerosx.sourceforge.net/) I use this program, although I recognize VLC has some advantages, MPlayerOSX is rock solid and fails only on rare ocassions.
