My VLC player is stuck in playlist mode, and I can not get it to play the video but I can hear Audio. It doesn't work on any of my videos. But all my quick time files work. My VLC is up to date. It was working earlier today, I made no adjustments then a few hours ago I went to open up a video and I can't get it out of playlist mode to show the video.
Go to Preferences and click reset all.
i had this same issue, i did try docking and undocking also fullscreen toggle but neither worked for me.
my solution: toggle set as desktop background (when set it fixxed) then reverted back to normal and still working again yey!
cause: i hit undock playlist to see what it would do... (broke video, audio working)
vlc 2.2.6 umbrella, windows 7 64bit (will never "upgrade" to adblasters)
I had some luck (in Windows 10): while it's playing, toggle/untoggle Playlist, Docked Playlist and Fullscreen Interface. Unfortunately, I can't recall the particular order. Try some messing around with those three.
