[SOLVED] VLC shows no image after upgrade
distro: Debian amd64
upgrade from lenny to testing
VLC is obviously a new version as its interface looks different and by default it opens the image in a separate window.
The newly upgraded VLC shows no image but sound regardless what video files I throw at it. It used to be working perfectly before the upgrade.
Several recommendations did not work for me, including setting the video output to x11 or openGL.
The error message:
Under "Tools" -> "Messages" it gave
main error: no video filter module matched "adjust"
main error: no suitable vout module
main error: failed to create video output
delete away "vlc" directory
set your VLC preferences to default
and voila! It worked for me after several days effort of finding the net.
