VLC with sound but no image (SOLVED)

I am trying to watch an video file using VLC but I can only hear the sound. There is no image just a black screen. I tried with wmv, avi and mp4 files, and none of them worked.

I can watch them fine using Gnome MPlayer and Totem.

Can someone help me?

Yes I can help you.
Stick with GNOME MPlayer and Totem (what's working for you).

I've tested VLC with an .avi file and that seemed to work fine.

Video might be disabled?

Right click where it should be -> Video -> Video Track -> Track 1

I find out what was causing this problem.
I had set Gnome-Mplayer video output to XV and somehow this was causing the problem.
I set Gnome-Mplayer video output to X11 and VLC is working fine know. :D
