    Why did my VLC player stop working?

    My VLC player stopped working sometimes yesterday or the day before and now I can't watch my movies anymore. I can hear the sound, but the picture is black?! Any idea how to fix that? I already uninstalled and reinstalled it several times!
    I tried other players too and neither works correctly!

    What did you install recently? Any such codec packs or games or other media stuff?

    Did you restart after reinstalling VLC?

    I have also come across such situations.What i do is just minimise that black screen and i could view the movie.But never close that screen,if closed, the whole appilcation will get closed.I dont knw the exact reason for this.This is what i used to do.

    I didn't install anything new until yesterday, when it didn't work. I downloaded two different codec packs that were in the title of the movie and the VLC player. Still not working.
    I had watched a movie on it and then didn't use it for a day or two when I was watching some stuff on Netflix. Now it doesn't work anymore. grrr
