    Start the player from the terminal....then with the player, open your file to play. Watch the terminal for any indicative messages of the players functioning and post any seeming abnormalities here.

    Usually the player name will do it.

    Thats all?? Try another player and see if you have a different message. Did you ever have video?

    Open VLC Player, Go to Preferences -- Video -- Check Enable video...Then in the Display portion check output and if it is set to default and not working select X11 video output from the drop-down list.

    Restart VLC Player.
