[SOLVED] VLC closes down when playing any kind of media file

Hi, folks!
I just installed B^L and i'm having some troubles with vlc. It closes down every time I want to play a mp3 file, avi, mp4, you name it...
I also installed gnome Mplayer and it works flawless. But I really love VLC, so I was wondering if someone can give me a hand.

This happens when I open vlc via terminator and try to play a .mp4 file:

  ututo [~]
  >> LC_ALL=C vlc
VLC media player 2.2.1 Terry Pratchett (Weatherwax) (revision 2.2.1-0-ga425c42)
[0000000001ce4148] core libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Error del bus

And it closes down immediately.

This happens when I open vlc via terminator and try to play a .mp3 file:

  ututo [~]
  >> LC_ALL=C vlc
VLC media player 2.2.1 Terry Pratchett (Weatherwax) (revision 2.2.1-0-ga425c42)
[00000000016b6148] core libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Violación de segmento

it plays the file for about 3 segs and then it closes down.

I don't know what's happening. Maybe something to do with codecs? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Re: [SOLVED] VLC closes down when playing any kind of media file

Did you check the sums when you downloaded the ISO image?

Strange that LC_ALL=C doesn't translate the messages properly hmm

Try running it with strace(1) to uncover more.

You could also try to generate a backtrace:

Re: [SOLVED] VLC closes down when playing any kind of media file

@HoaS thanks for the reply. The sums where fine.

I managed to solve the problem.

I read somewhere that vlc uses libavcodec, so I opened Synaptic and found that 'libavcodec56' could be upgraded and I did. That solved the problem with the video playing but not with the mp3 files.

I searched 'vlc' in synaptic and found that it could be upgraded too! After that, VLC plays any kind of file.

I don't understand why this happened if I made a 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade' after installing B^L.
