The intel version of VLC player keeps crashing on my macbook. Any suggestions?
Reinstall it. See if that fixes. Also see if your mac is trying to load it in rosetta
delete and reinstall.
I think its buggy.My VLC keeps crashing too,and displaying random error messages.I reinstall it and its the same.
And the Intel version doesnt have an option to open in rosetta.
Hm, my vlc works fine (macbook cd)
I've deleted and reinstalled a 100 times and it still does it on my macbook. It never did this when I ran the Rosetta version. Does anyone know where I can download the old VLC versions? I can only find the old windows versions.
Mine's buggy as well.
Buggy PowerPC version over here, I get error messages and just fuzz on certain videos, though some are of questionable origin.
It doesn't like skipping ahead through AVIs either, either clocks off or I get lots of error messages.
I only use it to play AVIs so it doesn't affect me too much!
Installing VLC on my first MB was buggy and crashed everytime I used it but has not been buggy/crashed on my second MB (knocks on wood).
I have the latest VLC and it does crash on occassion, but not to the point that drives me insane.
I also have these VLC issues on my C2D iMac. It's wierd!
Mine is buggy also. Definitely does not like to skip forward. Mainly use it for limewire porn....so maybe god or my mac is trying to tell me something?
I just recently installed VLC as everyone has said it is one of the essential mac apps (new to Mac here), but when I try to skip or scroll forward, it will always pop up error messages. If I try to play fullscreen, it crashes.
Ya thats the bugginess of it as ive found.I can get it into full screen but I have to baby it.Honestly,I think the version was updated recently and thats when it got screwey.It's not a Mac App though,its open source project,so I'm expecting it to be fixed soon.
speaking of VLC
Have been loving VLC! Options that are normally unavailable are sound. Although, Yes I agreed with the buggy-ness of the program all seem to mention about the player.
This is my dilemma at the moment.
Upon downloading this program I was initially unable to stream my desired live audio webstream and had to tool around with the settings. Not really knowing what I was doing, as I am a mac novice myself, I used the fail-proof trial and error method and changed settings until I reached my desired result. It worked perfectly!
My problem is the setting that I changed affected the built-in player used in Safari- I have no idea what this is called, nor do I know what type of file it is (.mvi, .wmv, ect.). Now when I try and view videos on certain websites it simply shows a black background with the simple phrase of (no picture). Under normal cirumstances I can coax the VLC player to work properly. This is not the case for the particular website I encountered tonight.
Upon trying to play this video the VLC player begins to trip itself on many errors that can not even stop itself from loading properly.
Is there anyway to restore the settings so that I may view video on the built in player? What settings would cause the built in players in both Safari and Firefox to result in a (no picture) message. I've done research on this and can only find troubleshooting when there is no picture and only audio. This is not the case, it simply will not load anything.
Is there any answer where I can manually change the settings myself in order to support the VLC player whenever possible?
I appreciate any help in advance.
