Try to download the newest version of VLC. If this still can't work, you can try some other VLC alternatives players such as Leawo Blu-ray Player, QuickTime, Miro, 5K Player, PlayerXtreme Media Player.

After downloading vlc all my icons change into vlc. how can i get rid off it?

Deselect the option to make VLC your default player. This should revert them back to normal. However if you want to play back the media files you will have to right click the file and select play via VLC. This will not change the icon of that file back to the cone of VLC, only changing to default will do that. If you were using Windows Media icons before, then selecting Windows Media player as default player will change the icons back. Normal clicking of the mouse on a media file will cause the play back via whatever player is set as the default.

MY laptop does not open any program because it happens that VLC player is opening all program.Vlc has become the default program for all programs

You can try to uninstall VLC,and then login with another user
then you can install VLC with that user and everything should be fine,but if you use you previous account,it will happen again,so i suggest you to make a new account and delete previous account
Or you can just reinstall the operating system

Bought a dvd but can not watch it as my windows media can not decode it i bought it in tesco

You have 2 options here:

1) Use another program, as already mentioned such as VLC - which I find covers just about everything.

2) Get a DVD program such as PowerDVD - but you could just use VLC which is free.

I would recommend VLC as it is free and plays just about anything. It is also extremely easy to use. You can get VLC from here and you can purchase PowerDVD from here

Hi 7 this is the tripping I have done what u recomended how ever it still fails to load any DVD's it will search for disk and eject it out I have never been able to use the dvd since i first bought this...

Hi Tripping,

In that case , the next step I would try is downloading some different software to see if that would work. There is a great open source DVD player called VLC. It is free and is supported on many different platforms. After you get VLC, put a DVD in the player and see if VLC will play it. You can get VLC here:

Hope this works for you.

I'm just wondering if it's possible to stream live video of your PC desktop screen to a webpage on another PC using VLC 1.0? I've tried different settings in VLC and I just haven't been able to get it to...

You need to find a screen capture program that captures your desktop as a camera then find a streaming utility for your website to point to that camera that was created as your desktop. It is possiable I just do not know right off hand what the program names are.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

No sound when playing DVD

Here is a simple way to find out if it is the program that you are using or actually your computer. What I am going to do is list a link at the bottom for you to install and try and watch your movies on. This is called VLC it is a movie player with a bunch of different codec's. You can think of a codec as a way to translate the designed language of the movie into audio and video. Different movies are written in different ways and not all programs have all of the correct codecs. But anyway VLC is jammed packed full of codecs. I use it personally, never had a issue it works amazing. This is my quickest and easiest solution.
