I'm having a lot of problems with vlc lately. I downloaded the latest version at the vlc player download page but for some reason it keeps crashing all the time. I used it for quite a white and it never had any bugs or crashes.I had the same issues before but they usually went away after reinstallation. So every time I try to open a video with VLC it crashes. My player used to crash too back in the day but everything got fixed with a simple reinstall.
