    VLC conflict with Jack in Ubuntu Studio 20.10

    Hi!

    I'm using Ubuntu Studio 20.10 since its release. I'm quite happy with it. However I'm experiencing issues with VLC as default video player. Whenever I have Jack working, if I play a video for the first time, VLC works fine but, if I try to open another video it stays blank. It only happens when Jack is on. If I'm with ALSA only it works as expected. I searched online if someone had the same issue but found nothing. I'm currently using Celluloid as an alternative. Any clues?

    Thanks!

    In VLC go to ToolsPreferencesVideo and set the output to OpenGL or X11 --- or something else other than automatic.

    THanks @xian that did the trick! I somehow related the issue with Jack but probably was just because I record audio and video with OBS while using Jack...
