VLC Media Player - Can't move or change size of screen

Postby nofrills » Sat Jun 10, 2017 2:32 am

Hi,

I've running LM 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit on a 2011 MacBook Pro. Everything has been running really well for the couple of months since installation, however a couple of days ago VLC Media Player started playing up. I can no longer move or re-size the screen. I've tried solutions from other forums including removing and re-installing the program but so far have had no luck. Is there an update that has occurred that has caused compatibility with my video card? I'm not sure what's going on. Some help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Before you re-installed, or have you tried, deleting the hidden VLC folder in your /home directory? It will be re-created when you re-start VLC.
Example: home/richyrich/.config/vlc/
