September 15th, 2009, 05:42 PM
I am using ubuntu 9.04 with Vlc 1.0.1. I have an rmvb file which i tried to play with vlc. it plays it but when i try to seek rapidly or somehow vlc freezes. the sound goes on playing but the video is paused. i am also able to move my mouse pointer. i am unable getout of this freeze. i tried alt-f2 to bring up run but of no use. the run window just donot come up. the only way before me is to shut the power of the comp. pls help me...

Vlc crashed while attempting to play an mkv video too.. Pls suggest a way close vlc without restarting my computer....

I found that it is not only with vlc that ubuntu crashes. so i am closing this thread and opening a new one.. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1269352
