    Perhaps try to clear VLC preferences? Look in your user preferences folder in your home folder. There should be a VLC folder in there.

    VLC 1.0.5 doesn't support Mac OS X 10.4. Are you using 0.9.10?

    The only system I have running Tiger is a G4 and I have less problems with VLC on it, than with v.1.05 running on Snow Leopard.

    OK so i tried deleting the preferences. didn't work.
    I installed vlc 9.2, and its a bit improved, i don't get a video window, but it doesn't suddenly quit. i also tried deleting the preferences for it, but i didn't do anything.

    Try Movist.

    IMO, better than VLC. I used VLC for 3+ years, and was always a solid fan. Little things nagged me, but I got used to the program's little quirks.

    Movist, though still in development, feels like a grown up VLC.
