I have a model B Pi and have installed the newest version of VLC. When I try to play a ten-second video file (.avi format) the VLC window opens with the orange logo then after few seconds it turns all black and the window is closed automatically. What may be causing this and how do I solve it? Alternatively are there any suggestions for another video player to try?
Above is the link so that you could have a Graphical User Interface (GUI) with OMXplayer. Wonderful!!
