Cannot access VLC HTTP interface (LUA)


I've enable the web interface and entered a password but when I try to access via browser the page tells me I must enter a password.

I decided to purge and re-install vlc (purge vlc vlc-nox) - also did sudo apt autoremove vlc but I get the same result.

How can I change the interface back to the default?

Hi:

When you open VLC and the skin you chose appears, right-click somewhere on the skins background and then choose Interface and Preferences (also accessible by pressing Ctrl+P). In the preferences dialog change the Interface type to "Native". Then click save and restart VLC.

That should do it:-

The problem, which I wasnít clear about, is that the default interface no longer opens - there is no skin. All I can get is the browser window which is no help. I thought there must be a way to manually edit the config file somewhere but I havenít found it.

Oh, ok-

Maybe completely remove vlc and than re-install it.
