It sounds like you have a bad .avi file. Have you tried playing it on something other than vlc? Also you can open a terminal and navigate to the folder containing sample.avi and run the command
Code:
file sample.avi
and see what it says.
cheers,
jdk

MAy be the GUI is crashing just tryand run the vlc in debug mode using gdb and see what is the exact cause of crash may be some resource not found problem can be there or something related to the detection of underlying gui rendering drivers. Best of luck!!!!!!
