    I downloaded and installed the newest VLC player 2.0. After installing I get an error message every time I try to download DVD onto my computer using Handbrake. I get this error message below.

    HandBrake could not find VLC or your VLC is incompatible (Note: 32 bit vlc is not compatible with 64 bit HandBrake and vice-versa).


    After a downgrade to 1.2 VLC I was able to use Handbrake again. Anyone else having issues? What am I doing wrong? :confused:

    I've downloaded both software and reinstalled, made sure both are in App folder, and both are 64bit.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I just checked the site and it still shows 2.0.0 version for download. I'm on an iMac.

    VLC 2.0 vs Handbrake

    I got the same error, I reinstalled the 32/64 bit version of VLC 2.0 and Handbrake and now it appears to be working. I will test it tonight and make sure.

    I tried the above link https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=23301 and it seemed to cure my problem. I'm hand braking right now so will report back with any problems :)

    I followed this but it hasn't worked for me unfortunately.
    Any other solutions?

    Update: It was solved when I updated both VLC and Handbrake
