I have been using VLC for almost all video pretty much since I got my Mac. Recently, it just stoped working for no apparent reason. Whenever I try to pen a file, VLC opens fine however the video never starts and the control pane just says "text" where the file name should be (over the time indicator). Also, as soon as VLC opens my computer slows down to the point where it is very choppy and unusable. any suggestions? I've tried deleting VLC and reinstalling it a few times but to no avail.
