VLC media player for Windows Troubleshooting • vlc randomly crashes even on a fresh format

since Ive bought this laptop I’ve had this problem

after research it seems the same as these ppl are reporting, even years ago:
https://www.reddit.com/r/VLC/comments/g … ullscreen/

vlc randomly “hangs” my pc when i come out of full screen, or if im scrubbing

when I say hang, I mean the cursor still moves, audio still plays, but not the video
pressing ctrl alt del, or ctrl shift esc, alt tab, clicking or pressing esc does not work, the mouse icon changes but nothing comes up
the audio will keep playing until finally it is silenced.
The only way to recover from this hang is to forcefully shut down the laptop

I am on a fresh install of windows 10, vlc latest version downloaded from the official site

12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-12700H 2.30 GHz
32.0 GB RAM

my intel graphics driver is the latest on intel site, intel arc & xe graphics 5444

on the same day that Ive just formatted the pc it already happens

any advice would be welcome
