  1. I can not open some videos via vlc media player on some of my file folders


    Hi I have encountered this problem maybe 2 to 4 weeks already but I didn't mind this at first. I tried many tutorial on vlc troubleshooting with error saying: "Your input can't be opened: blah..blah...". None of them worked. This is how it started. When I tried to watch some videos using vlc media player it did not open. I prefer using vlc media player over other media players. But when I try to open the same video file using other media player like KMP or Movies & TV, It would play. Also when I tried to transfer the file to some file folders outside of its current file folder, it would play in vlc media player.I can not open some videos via vlc media player on some of my file folders [​IMG] Also when I tried to look for the video file properties, it has no security menu that normally should be there. And what really wonders me is when I tried to remove its properties and create a copy of it. The copy of the video file will play with VLC medial Player though in comparison is not 100 percent same quality of the original file of course. I compared them by opening the original file with other media player. So what is it really is the problem? I already scanned the file folder, the drive D and Drive C. still the same problem. Just to add, maybe this may help. SOME pdf files also has some problem. Adobe reader can not read them. Here again if I use other pdf reader like sumatra to open the pdf file, it reads. Now if I transfer it to another file folder outside of its current folder, adobe reader can read it already. I noticed also, when I tried to save as a copy of excel file to other file folder directory, it couldn't be saved. but when choosing another file folder directory, it can be saved. I hope someone can help me. I don't want to go to the last resort of reformatting my computer. Many Thanks!

    :)

    I can not open some videos via vlc media player on some of my file folders

    Default app set to VLC but Win Media PLayer opens


    Hi

    I have set the default media player for both music and video to VLC and when I double click a single file it opens in VLC. However if I select a number of music files and hit enter or click play at the top of windows explorer it opens windows media player. Even if I right click the files it only gives me options to open in Windows Media Player as shown in attached.

    How can I fix this?
