Xplayer Won't Play More Than One Video in Succession

Post by zilcro » Wed Aug 14, 2019 1:07 pm

When clicking on the first video file, Xplayer opens and runs fine with no problems. After closing the first video and clicking on a second, the Linux "loading graphic" spins for about 30 seconds, then it disappears and nothing happens.

If I right-click on a video file to open it using the context menu (Open With "Media Player), I see the same behavior. I tried removing Xplayer & all of it's plug-ins and re-installing, but that did not help.

VLC and SMPlayer are on my system as well and both of those work correctly. This problem seems to have started after the most recent Mint update. I tried restoring to an earlier Timeshift point to try and address that but it had no effect on this issue. I'm running 19.1 Xfce.
