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

If your computer doesn’t start because there is no electricity, do you ask for help for the computer shop or the electricity distributor?

You have to be realistic here. VLC proper cannot cause a crash like you’ve described, and VideoLAN cannot give you info we don’t have as to how to debug your computer system.

Maybe your computer or GPU vendor will not help, and maybe they will deflect responsibility, but that doesn’t change the fact that VideoLAN can’t help you debug your drivers.

thank you for your help, then as a last word, could you explain to me in a way that is easy to understand, as if you were talking to someone who is not literate on tech:

if vlc cannot cause the problem, why does the problem happen with vlc?

can you make some sort of analogy?

what is vlc doing (that is considered non problematic behaviour), to trigger display drivers into causing the laptop to hang/crash?

is there some setting in vlc that I can tune that would stop vlc to overburden the drivers, or to overreach in such a way that a faulty driver cannot handle it?

thanks for your attention, it is appreciated
