Video freezes on first frame

Jan 31, 2014 at 3:46 PM
This is a great piece of software - at work it is fine but on my laptop I can't stream any video.

I click stream with VLC and it freezes on the first frame whilst the audio continues.

It is the same with any other video too.

Has anybody found this problem?

Many thanks

Hi!

Actually, there is one user with the same problem and we are trying to find a solution.
Maybe the problem with the default VLC options I am using..

Here's some thing you could try to diagnose the problem:

In the file "C:\Users[YOUR USER NAME]\AppData\Local\VrPlayer\VrPlayer.exe_Url_bdskikkk2e4shgvwtqjmd4r2snqznpyd\0.5.1.0\user.config" (Folder name might be slightly different), find the option key for vlc media plugin (if you search for the word "Options" in the document, it should be easy) and replace current options with "-v --file-logging" and save the document. Relaunch VR Player.

Example:
 {"Key":"Options","Value":"-v --file-logging"}
If this work as expected, a console will popop with vlc debug informations when you will launch a video.

Please let me know if you see an obvious error in the console log.

Thank you,

-Stephane
