I installed Rasppian buster on pi 3 on my 8GB SDCard, No issue what so ever playing video on Chrome, VLC, etc. I now did a squashfs file to boot Raspbian Buster via Berryboot where I have more storage space of 256GB.

Everything is ok except I can't play video files. VLC hangs when press play. Chrome browser plays sound but displays like this on YouTube. enter image description here

Any fix for this?

No Problem with Firefox.

Somehow got it fixed. I installed smplayer, xine and gstreamer-plugins and all is back to normal. enter image description here

Seems some plugins were missing which I am not sure the exact one. Please more answers needed to be sure what caused it. I am interested to know.

  • I had a similar problem after Chromium updated. Solved it by setting GPU memory to 80 MB.
