Re: Playing VLC causes computer restart
There may be a setting that is causing the problem. Does your WMP setting have download codecs when required? Microsoft sometimes uploads you codecs, which makes it basically blocks other programs.
Go to your Windows Media Player settings and uncheck, automatically dl codecs, and also go to file types and uncheck the file types WMP is associated with.
If the file you want to view has the WMP icon beside it, right clic on the file,and find another program that that play the file; quicktime for instance. If the logo beside the file changed to a quicktime logo, try opening the file again with VLC. If it doesn't work, make sure the settings you are using are OK, and also, make sure you downloaded the right VLC for your operating system. If you are not sure, uninstall VLC and go back to there website and carefully read to make sure you download the right version for you.
If it doesn't work, when I will be on my PC, I will check the version and settings and get back to you. maybe in ~ 15 hours unless I see you have resolved your problem.
