VLC media player for Windows Troubleshooting • VLC no longer opens in Windows 11

For the past few days, I’ve been unable to open VLC Media Player on my Windows computer. It worked up until a few days ago. Now–nothing. Unresponsive. It shows up in Task Manager as being running, but it’s dead in practical use.

I tried uninstall/reinstall the last time it did this (a week ago) and it worked for a few days, then…nothing.

I have the correct version installed. Now, even if I right-click on a video and ask it to open in VLC (a trick that once worked when the program wouldn’t open otherwise). Dead to the world.

What might the problem be? Has VLC become enshittified at last?
