About thread - VLC Media Player 1.1.11 The Luggage slow open Nov 23, 2011
Hay, I'm running VLC media player 2.1.5 Rincewind on a Intel i5 Desktop with OS Win 7 (64bit) updated 2015may08
After many googles finally the SOLUTION - in Malwarebytes (pro) and possible also in other anti-malware progams
go to Settings - Malware exclusions - select C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe
(maybe you have to add also C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc-cache-gen.exe)
Only with VLC.exe added it opens on my 8 gB memory PC in 3 secs now.
Greets from "half down under water" Holland)
(Google tags - VLC media player opens slow starts slow slow loading running slow)
Versatile media player that can play about anything you throw at it.
It can crash on some occasion though with mkv files containing subtitles.
But its free. :)
While it has generally functioned well I have been having one very major issue with this version. Randomly the picture freezes and say 5 - 6 second segment of the audio stream goes into infinite loop. At this point I even have hard time in killing the application. The same video file plays flawlessly in version 2.0.7.
I wonder if it is just me - with sub-par original Intel hardware - or something is the matter with this version !
I tried both versions 2.1.5 and 2.2.0RC2 (x64) and Audio garbles. Video OK. Tried install 2.1.4 over this, no can do. So, I uninstalled via Microsoft Add/Remove and decided to go with 2.1.3 since I saw "roma_turok" comment below. BTW, when I try to play a Movie with VLC, it does not show the video clearly right off the back. After few seconds that movie is playing then picture becomes clear.
VLC Media Player 2.1.5 crashes while opening any video but it was same in 2.1.4 version also. But 2.1.3 version is working fine. Please fix this bug.
