that error shows a lua error

"main services discovery error: no suitable access module for "

how did you install vlc on Ubuntu 12.04 ( guessing it is ubuntu 12.04 )

Angry VLC is unable to open the MRL

I am able to play local music, and view dvd movies.

Have installed vlc by command line, in the past and use. Also I have use synaptic package manager to load other vlc files.

sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
mozilla-plugin-vlc is already the newest version.
vlc is already the newest version.
vlc-plugin-pulse is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

is there a config file in vlc that I could 'play' with?

or do I have a firewall problem with vlc accessing the net?

(I think big brother does not like me)
