    You'd have to create a bug report for the developers to notice. They do not visit the forums.

    Hi
    I seem to have the same problem of VLC staying in the background with an icon in the top bar.
    I have to log out from the GUI (with a warning of VLC still playing a mysterious file)Then it works again.
    Same problem with Gnome or XFCE .
    I'm running 19.04 and it seems to have appeared with an update.
    When trying to run VLC twice the second instance complains about not having access to the audio.

    I am using Xubuntu, but have Gnome System Monitor installed. I am sure Xubuntu's Task Manager can be used as well. I keep system monitor open all the time, so when this happens, I just go to processes, find VLC, then right click and select Kill. Afterwards, I am able to open the video. Not sure what is causing this issue. I didn't see the problem on my previous install of 18.04.2, though the problem started after doing a fresh install of 18.04.3. It was also a problem when running Debian 10.

    Thanks for the tip but in my case it seems that gnome system monitor doesn't work anymore.
    htop does the job anyway
    I noticed that Kaffeine suffers the same problem:
    On first launch it works OK but when closed an icon stays on the top bar and I cannot launch it again.
